    The Electrical Engineering Technician program at St Lawrence College, Kingston Campus has given me a fantastic opportunity to expand my electrical knowledge. The program as a whole covers many different aspects of electrical, process control and electronics. One of the greatest things about this program is the size of our classes and the hands on work that is available to us. The faculty has created a great balance of theory and practical work within our program. Our teachers have a lot of experience in the electrical field and offer us a lot of support. They ensure our success by effectively explaining all content in a way everyone can understand. Though this program is 2 years long my time here has gone rather quickly. I am thankful for the career opportunities that are available to me after graduating in April of 2015. All in all this program is a great opportunity for anyone interested in the electrical field, regardless of previous experience or not.
