Electrical Engineering Technology -- Electronics
A.A.S. Degree - Career Program

Program Objectives: The Electrical Engineering Technology – Electronics program offers our diverse community with a high quality-learning environment and many training opportunities. After successfully completing the requirements of this program, the graduate will be capable of:


1. Functioning as a technically qualified electrical/electronics technician, fully capable of working with electrical, electronic, instrumentation, communication, control, and computer hardware and software based applications. Such activities may include the collection and analysis of data, the troubleshooting and repair of defective equipment and circuitry, the translation of engineering designs into projects and test procedures, and the preparation of technical reports for an engineering or sales team.


2. Successfully transferring to a four or five year baccalaureate program in electrical, computer, or telecommunications engineering technology. This allows the graduate to continue to participate in life-long learning if she/he desires.

3. Displaying employability in a qualified technical environment with a variety of constituencies such as clients, co-workers, supervisors, customers utilizing skills acquired in the program. Such skills include professional oral and written communication, critical-thinking and team working skills.

4. Engaging in professional development activities and building upon on her/his initial technical background and achieved degree.

* MATHEMATICS ELECTIVES should be selected with guidance from faculty advisors. Those who are not considering transfer to an upper division program will probably take the MTH 140/141/175 technical math sequence. Those contemplating transfer (and having a good math background) can fulfill their math requirement with the MTH 165/175/210 transfer math sequence. Students who are not proficient in algebra and trigonometry should consult a math advisor about taking MTH 135, MTH 098, MTH 104 and/or MTH 112 in preparation for the required technical math or transfer math sequence.

*** A specific calculator is required for ELT courses. Certain math courses recommend or require a specific calculator. Contact the department for details.
# ELT 101 or ELT 121 may serve as the prerequisite.

NOTE: Students in "2+2" Agreements should meet with their faculty advisor to make certain the courses they have selected meet the requirements of the college to which they plan to transfer.

NOTE: Electronics courses are normally offered only one semester per year, and have as a prerequisite certain lower numbered ELT courses. Failure to complete ELT courses in a properly planned sequence may result in a delay of graduation. Most other courses in this program are available Fall, Spring and Summer sessions.

NOTE: Students with less academic preparation will need three years to complete the Electronics program. The first year, the student could select from among MTH 098, MTH 104, MTH 135 and/or MTH 112; PHY 100; TEK 100, 101, 190; ELT 130; TRS 104; OFT 100, TEK courses; ENG 101; PE; social science electives, etc. Contact an ELT advisor for details, and to explore the advisability of taking ELT 121 and ELT 102.
