Engineering and Electronics Technology

Engineering and Electronics Technology is essentially the link between engineering design and machine operation. Engineering Technicians work with Engineers in the design progress 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, Computers, and Electronic Communications.

Industrial Engineering Technology

Industrial Engineering Technology focuses on the electrical systems that make automation work. Technicians in this area focus on the electrical motors, controls systems, and motor controls and may go to work in manufacturing facilities to maintain, repair and modify electrical systems.

Electronic Communications Technology

This program prepares a graduate to go to work in the area electric and electronic communications. In this program you will learn the fundamentals of electrical and electronics, as well as how electronics is used in communication systems. Graduates are prepared for entry-level careers in troubleshooting and repair of electronic systems, consumer electronics, and telephone and cable systems.

Electronics Engineering Technology

This program studies the fundamentals of electricity and focuses on electronic devices and digital electronics. This program is for the person who wants to understand the basics of electricity and electronics and go to work in the electronics area in electronics repair, electronics assembly, and testing.
