Hear What Our Students Have to Say!
I decided to study electrical/electronics technology because I have always been curious about how electronic devices worked, not just on the outside but also on the inside. What I love most about being in the electrical/electronics program is all the hands-on projects. I have always been a visual learner and a “try it out” type of person. The program not only tests you on your academic knowledge, but it tests you more on your hands-on capabilities. After graduating from Galveston College, I plan to pursue a bachelor’s degree in computer engineering technology. I don’t know exactly what type of career I will have when I am done with school, but as long as I am working with electronics I will be a happy girl.
ACC has always been like a home to me. The staff is so helpful and friendly. The community connection is what brought me to make a final decision to attend ACC.
