About the Program

The Electronics Technician four-term certificate program is designed for students seeking entry level
electronics technician positions in manufacturing or service industries. The program emphasizes
theory fundamentals, practical troubleshooting, and basic electronics design as well as general
studies courses. Technical courses involve extensive lab work using industry standard test equipment
and practices.

This program will help students gain skills for entry into one of today’s most dynamic and broad-based
technical fields. Typical occupations include those of field engineers in business or communications
fields, or line/maintenance technicians at manufacturing sites. Electronics training also
provides excellent positioning for lateral movement into areas such as technical sales or technical
