About the Program

The Electronics Technology Associate of Applied Science degree provides students the necessary
skills for entry into one of today’s most dynamic and broad-based technical fields. The program
emphasizes electronic theory fundamentals, troubleshooting and design, and involves both highly
technical and general studies courses. Advanced courses include radio frequency and microwave
communications, PC hardware, and microcontrollers and interfacing. Typical occupations include
those of electronics test technicians at manufacturing sites or field engineers in the communications

The technical courses involve extensive lab work using industry standard test equipment and practices.
As a capstone, students design and build an electronics project to demonstrate their proficiencies
of program outcomes. The AAS degree can be used for technical block transfers to four-year
institutions’ basic engineering programs, although continuing students will be advised to take
additional transfer courses.
