Why choose Ranken for your electrical construction degree?

In response to industry demand and feedback from the Electrical Systems Design Technology advisory board, Ranken is pleased to offer an evening school certificate program in Electrical Construction Design and Management (ECDM).

Electrical construction designers and project managers work in multiple phases of electrical construction. Designers create electrical systems for residential, commercial and industrial buildings using computers and Computer Aided Drafting (CAD) software. The designs are then assembled, installed and maintained by electricians and electrical construction workers. Cost estimation, project scheduling and management of the fabrication and installation phase are also key to this career.

Electrical designers and managers are employed by architectural firms, consulting engineering firms, electrical contractors and product sales and support offices. Graduates of this program typically find entry-level jobs as project designers, project managers, estimators, product specialists and sales representatives.
