You will study electronic circuits, logic and architecture and learn to program hardware, work with operating systems, and troubleshoot hardware and software failures.
Requirements: Intermediate Algebra with Trigonometry or Math 104 at MCC, typing or keyboarding skills recommended


Electrical Engineering Technology: Electronics (A.A.S.)

This degree provides the technical depth, breadth, and general education for a career in electronics design, manufacturing, sales, or service. You will learn BASIC, assembly language, programming, and microcomputer interfacing. The program is accredited by the Technology Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering Technology. Computer Track As an Electrical Engineering Technology major, you may choose the Computer Track, which is designed specifically for students who want to transfer into a bachelor's degree program in Computer Engineering Technology.
Requirements: Intermediate Algebra with Trigonometry or Math 104 at MCC


Engineering Science - Computer Engineering Science Option (A.S.)

This engineering degree focuses on the design, construction and operation of computer systems. It is designed for students planning to transfer to a four-year school to study computer engineering science.
Requirements: Pre-calculus in high school or Math 175 at MCC, three years of science including Chemistry and Physics


Information Technology (A.S.)

This degree prepares you to study IT at a four-year college. It focuses on better ways to use existing technology and software in corporations and business. Most graduates plan to specialize in general IT applications, web design/marketing/ecommerce, or networking and IT systems support.
Requirements: Intermediate Algebra with Trigonometry or Math 104 at MCC, typing or keyboarding skills recommended


Cisco Certified Networking Associate (CCNA) Preparation

The nationally recognized Cisco Networking Academy offers leading edge classroom and laboratory instruction for designing, building and maintaining computer networks. As a key part of MCC's Computer Systems Technology (A.A.S.) & Information Technology (A.S.) programs, it prepares you to take the Cisco Certified Networking Associate exam. Cisco certification is recognized by employers worldwide because it proves that you have a comprehensive grasp of core networking technologies.

Certificates


Computer-Aided Design and Drafting (CADD)

The mechanical designer of today requires knowledge in many areas including mechanical drafting, computer-aided design and drafting, machine shop, robotics and machine components. Our design and drafting courses emphasize the national standards for drafting and geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GDT). Students may choose to continue their educations by enrolling into the Mechanical Technology A.A.S. degree program which introduces the student to the principles, materials, and equipment of mechanical design and manufacturing.
Requirements: High school graduate or GED, Elementary Algebra with Geometry or MTH 098 at MCC.
