Program Description
The Electronic Engineering Technology Certificate of Completion provides the student with a foundation in electronics theory, application as well as established and emerging technologies. This program is designed for students who intend to enter the work force after obtaining the Certificate of Completion degree. Students will be prepared to operate, install, troubleshoot, repair, maintain and service electronic equipment and systems. The program has a solid core in electronics and advanced courses which continue to build upon the fundamentals. The courses emphasize mastery  of theory as well as attainment of skills and competencies vital to workforce needs.

Career Opportunities
Students who complete a Certificate of Completion in Electronics Engineering Technology can pursue careers in many areas of research and development, space, defense, government, consumer electronics, biomedical. Examples of occupations include electronic installers and repairers, radio and telecommunications equipment installers and repairers, electronics development (R&D) technicians, electronics manufacturing and production technicians. The courses taken in fulfillment of the Certificate of Completion can be applied to an Associate of Applied Science should the  student decide to pursue an AAS degree later.

Estimated Cost for Students

Advising Notes

To complete this program as outlined, students should enter with math proficiency at MATH 1010 or above. Students who need to take preparatory classes to meet the requirements of first semester courses should plan on extra time to complete the program. It is the student’s responsibility to examine each course description for details of prerequisite classes. Those prerequisites must be satisfied before the designated class may be taken. Students should check the semester class schedule for day/ evening availability and modifications caused by varying enrollment.
