Associate of Science in Electronics Technology

The Associate of Science in Electronics Technology (ASET) is a 97.5-credit hour program that is offered on the Colorado Springs campus. The program is comprised of 60.5 credit hours of general education courses and 37 credit hours devoted to the electronics technology core. If necessary, a student may be required to take 4 credit hours of preparatory work in C++.

The program is designed to help students build the knowledge to think like an engineer—to develop logical thinking and critical analysis skills and improve decision-making skills. Students are encouraged to develop skills that are transferable to many industries such as problem solving, decision making, innovation, project management, collaboration and communication. The ASET degree is designed to help students develop knowledge of analog and digital electronics, skills that are needed in commercial enterprises such as integrated circuit (IC) companies and telecommunications firms.

The curriculum of this program aligns to the first two years of the Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering.

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
