Electronic Service Tech. Opt., Elect. Engr.Tech. A.A.S.

ProgramDetailControl/CustomProgramData/Image/img/@alt
Electronic technologists are needed by organizations that develop, manufacture and service electronic and electrical equipment and systems. Graduates may work on communications equipment, radar and sonar units, industrial and medical monitoring and control devices, navigation equipment and computer systems. The degree programs emphasize understanding electronics principles and troubleshooting concepts rather than how to repair specific equipment. With this background, students should be able to repair, modify and design a wide variety of electronic equipment. Depending upon their eventual career goals, students can choose among two degree program options and a certificate. Students who wish to continue their studies toward a four-year Bachelor of Science in Electronic Engineering Technology (BSEET) degree should take the Electronic Engineering Technology A.A.S. Graduates of the Electronic Engineering Technology Option typically transfer to Capitol College, Old Dominion University or the University of Maryland Eastern Shore. Additionally, graduates of this technology program can transfer into the engineering program at Capitol College with minimal loss of credits by carefully choosing mathematics and science courses. Students who wish to work directly after graduation should pursue the Electronic Service Technology Option of the Electronic Engineering Technology A.A.S. degree program, which has fewer mathematics requirements and more hands-on courses. Students interested in this program also should consider the Computer Engineering Technology A.A.S. program described elsewhere in this chapter. The certificate program is composed of technical courses without the general education courses required for a degree and leads into the degrees without loss of credits.
