Associate of Science in Electronics Technology

Both private business and the government rely on sophisticated electronic equipment for a multitude of applications: manufacturing and production processes, communication systems, power plant operations, missile control and guidance, engineering test, and embedded control systems. Individuals with knowledge of analog and digital electronics are in demand, especially in commercial enterprises such as integrated circuit (IC) companies and telecommunications firms. This degree comprises the first two years of either the Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering (BSEE) or the Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering (BSCE) degree programs.

Outcomes:

  • Analysis of DC and AC circuits and electronics, including significant laboratory-based experience in each of these areas
  • Analysis and design of digital hardware, as well as embedded microcontroller (software)
  • Problem-solving and trouble-shooting techniques
  • Design of integrated-circuit (IC) based digital electronics
  • Use of modern, computer-based simulation tools
  • Use of advanced laboratory instrumentation
  • Communication skills essential to the workplace
