Program Type: Associate in Science Degree

Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs)

Division: Technology and Health Division

Program Description:
The Electronics and Computer Engineering Technology (ECET) degree program prepares individuals either for initial employment or for enhancement of existing skills in the electronics field. In addition to exposing students to core topics such as components and circuits, the program includes coursework in advanced areas including microcontrollers and interfacing, communications, and industrial electronic controls. Nearly all laboratories have new, state-of-the-art equipment to provide students with quality, hands-on learning experiences.

Students completing ECET degree and certificate programs possess ample skills to make them versatile employees. Typical technician-level job classifications include field service technician, fields engineer, computer service technician, customer service technician, communications technician, maintenance technician and electronics technician. All students completing the degree program are automatically eligible to receive, without further examination, the 3rd class technician license from the National Association of Radio and Telecommunications Engineers (N.A.R.T.E.).
There are no prerequisites and/or enrollment limitations.
