Electrical Engineering Technology, A.A.S.

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs of Study

The Electrical Engineering Technology, A.A.S. program prepares students for careers as electrical engineering technicians who assist engineers in the maintenance, installation, design, fabrication and testing of electrical and electronic devices and systems. Students in the program will obtain the scientific, electrical, and technical engineering skills necessary to function as contributing members of engineering teams. The Electrical Engineering Technology program incorporates the Electronics Technician certificate, which creates a stackable credential resulting in a pathway to a job as well as degree completion. This A.A.S. program is a career degree, preparing students for the workforce after graduation. However, students can opt to transfer to a four-year program rather than start a career, but should confer with advisors and transferring institutions for specific requirements.
