This major/certificate is undergoing revisions. Please consult a counselor or program coordinator.

The Electronic Technology Certificate of Achievement offers students the basic foundation to perform the work of an electronic technician in both traditional engineering environments and service related environments.

Electronic technicians lay out, build, test and modify electronic components, equipment, and systems such as computers, test equipment, and machine tool numerical controls, using principles of electronics, electrical circuitry, engineering, mathematics, and physics. An electronic technician often works under the direction of engineering staff. Non-traditional areas include such things as biomedical instrument repairs, alternative energy installation and repair, field service, and installations.

Our courses prepare students to succeed in applying the fundamental principles and practices of electronic technology to a variety of job settings.

For students interested in an Associate Degree, an Electronics major is available.
