MBIE is committed to inspiring a professional, competent, and ethical electrologist, challenging the student to not only acquire the technical skills, but also the professional acumen to achieve a successful career. We provide a comprehensive survey of electrology, giving every student the opportunity to attain personal satisfaction and self-growth.
