Introduction to the Electronics Engineering Technology Associate in Science Degree (AS) Program

The Electronics Engineering Technology Program provides students with the fundamentals of electronics that will prepare them as technicians in a variety of fields including computer technology, networking, instrumentation, and biomedical. Selected specialty courses are available to provide detailed instruction in these technical areas. The content includes but is not limited to DC circuits, AC circuits, solid-state devices, analog circuits, digital fundamentals, and circuits. Integrated into this content will be communications skills, employability skills, safe and efficient work practices, use of circuit diagrams and schematics, and soldering. The program includes lecture and significant hands-on lab experiences. The program focuses on a common core of foundational, intermediate and advanced courses required of all students. Students will then specialize in one or more emphasis areas depending on their career goals. Students are strongly urged to consult with the Department when selecting their courses.

We strongly encourage that you contact the Engineering Technology Department for assistance in planning your program of study.

The Associate in Science in Electronics Engineering includes the following college credit certificate:

Electronics Aide

Students in this program are encouraged to apply to graduate with the certificate as the requirements are satisfied.

Is This For You?

People in this career like to work with tools and machines and have mathematical and mechanical abilities. They must meet strict standards, have good eye and hand coordination with above average finger and hand dexterity.

Beyond Graduation . . .

Technicians usually begin by performing routine duties under the close supervision of an experienced technician, technologist, engineer, or scientist. As they gain experience, they are given more difficult assignments with only general supervision. Some engineering technicians eventually become supervisors. As technology becomes more sophisticated, employers will continue to look for technicians who are skilled in new technology and require a minimum of additional job training. An increase in the number of jobs related to public health and safety should create job opportunities for technicians
