How You'll Learn

  • On Campus
  • 8-Week Courses

Electrical engineering technologists' work involves the design, development, production, testing, manufacturing and repair of electronic and electrical equipment. In this calculus-based program, gain skills necessary to apply knowledge of electrical theory to numerous settings, including research and development, manufacturing, field service engineering among others.

How To Apply

  • Apply online and pay the $30 application fee.
  • Complete placement assessment (Reading, Writing and Math).
    • ALEKS is the recommended math assessment for this program.

Questions on the application process? Visit the Admissions page or contact an enrollment counselor.

Why Take the ALEKS?

Engineering is a math-intensive field of study. The ALEKS Math placement exam is a web-based assessment tool to accurately assess, prepare and place students into the appropriate level of Math course.

We encourage students to take the ALEKS to improve your Math placement if you are below Calculus 1. Each additional Math course to build up to Calculus 1 will extend the time it takes to complete your degree.

ALEKS Score WCTC Course Placement
0-6% 854-793 Basic Math
6-13% 834-109 Pre-Algebra
14-29% 834-110 Elementary Algebra
30-45% 804-118 Intermediate Algebra
46-60% 804-195 College Algebra
61-75% 804-196 Trigonometry
76-100% 804-198 Calculus I

Have you completed other placement testing (ACCUPLACER, ACT, etc.)? View a chart of all testing prerequisites for Math courses.

Do you have prior learning credit? Request to have your official transcripts or score report sent to the WCTC Admissions Office to determine if a math course could waive your ALEKS Math placement exam.
