What is Engineering and Electronics Technology?
The Engineering and Electronics Technology program provides course work, competencies, and experiences to prepare the students for success in the areas of Engineering technology. Engineering and Electronics Technology is essentially the link between engineering design and machine operation.
Engineering Technicians work with Engineers in the design process prototyping systems and testing designs. They work with existing systems during and after production to make sure the manufacturing process is working properly and change the processes if necessary. After manufacturing, technicians are involved in troubleshooting and repair of systems in the field.
We offer Engineering Technology programs specializing in Electronics, Industrial systems, Computer Maintenance, Robotics and Automation, and Electronic Communications.
