“…I chose HACC since all of my classes would be paid for and there would not be much for me to cover tuition wise.”
HACC offers a variety of choices at its Midtown Trade and Technology Center in downtown Harrisburg. Chase Brown is currently working toward his degree in electronic engineering technology and learning how to install, operate, service and maintain complex electrical and electronic equipment.
“Since I am covered by military benefits, I chose HACC since all of my classes would be paid for and there would not be much for me to cover...” Chase said. Not only that, but Chase said he lives close to the Harrisburg Campus and does not have to travel far to get to his classes.
With classes on robotics, computer rebuilding and digital electronics, the program is designed to expand knowledge and teach practical skills. “HACC has improved my life by granting me knowledge in relation to things that I would consider useful,” he said. Despite taking seven classes one semester, Chase was able to maintain a strong GPA and make it onto the dean’s list (he admits that taking seven classes was “pretty hectic”).
Chase plans to graduate in May 2021. With his associate degree, Chase can apply his knowledge in the field and work his way up to a salary of more than $51,000/year as an electrical engineering technologist.
