Program Of Study - Associate Degree

The Electronics Engineering program is comprised primarily of three concentrations, or tracks: General, Systems, or Automation. Each track utilizes common, core electronics courses, as well as courses specifically relevant to that particular track.

The General track is for students that want a solid foundation in electronics theory and possibly plan to transfer to an approved university to continue their education. This track is also ideal for the student that loves electronics but may not be decided on a particular career field upon graduation.

The Systems track is for students desiring a career in various fields where electronics systems are at the core of their field. The growing industries of communications, healthcare, and manufacturing are all great examples.

The Automation track is designed to prepare the student for an exciting career in the world of automated manufacturing as an automation technician, robotics technician, or other careers related to computer integrated manufacturing and controls.
