Program Learning OutcomesCurriculum Code: ELTC-AAS

     This program is designed for students who wish to study for technical careers in electronics and related fields. Students are prepared for careers in industry or business as electronic technicians or engineer assistants, or they may adapt their degree for transfer to baccalaureate degree programs.

Emphasis is placed on classroom study and laboratory training in electricity, electronics, microcontrollers, telecommunications and networking. The technical subjects are supplemented with courses in English, mathematics, physics and communication.

Students entering industry or business can find careers as production or lab technicians, engineer assistants, or field-service representatives in the area of communications, computers, control and measurement, medical electronics, consumer and office equipment, and other electronics-related fields.

Students planning to transfer to four-year colleges should consult with the department for their selection of courses. Typical programs to which the A.A.S. degree transfers include the Bachelor of Electrical Technology (B.E.T.) and the Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology (B.S.E.T.).
