Electrical Electronics Technology

Electrical / Electronics Technology

Purpose: The Electrical/Electronics Engineering Technology program provides industry with personnel trained in state-of-the-art electrical/electronics equipment and systems. The program is designed to prepare technicians for full-time employment. Also, many of the credits required by the program are transferable to an appropriate Bachelor of Engineering Technology Program.

Occupational Objectives: Engineering Technician, Electrical Maintenance Technician, Electronics Operation/Service Technician, Field Service Analyst, Field Service Technician, Installation Technician, Maintenance Technician, Technical Sales Specialist

Admission Requirements: In addition to the admission requirements established for the college, entry into the Electrical/Electronics Engineering Technology program requires proficiency in high school English, Mathematics, and Science. Students will be required to take English and Math placement test and complete pre-requisite developmental courses before being allowed to enter the program.

Program Requirements: The Electrical/Electronics Engineering Technology Degree is a two-year (four semesters) program with courses and training including circuit analysis, semiconductor devices, electrical drafting, digital electronics, electrical machinery, programmable logic controllers, control systems, and technical mathematics. In addition to acquiring broad knowledge of electrical components, students in the program will learn how to design and analyze electrical circuits; install, test and maintain electrical/electronic systems; operate and troubleshoot modern industrial controllers; and relate their knowledge to real-world applications. They will also acquire the communications, problem solving and teamwork skills necessary to succeed in their chosen career.

Note: A number of four-year institutions are offering Bachelor’s Degree programs in Engineering Technology which build on this AAS degree. Students interested in such programs should consult with their program advisers early in their program.
