Electronics Engineering Technology

Electronics classes now available to current high school students!

The Electronics Engineering Technology curriculum prepares individuals to become technicians who design, build, install, test, troubleshoot, repair, and modify electronic equipment and systems such as industrial computer controls, automation manufacturing systems, radio and wireless communication systems, professional and consumer electronics, and medical equipment.

A broad-based core of courses, including basic electronics, semiconductors, analog and digital fundamentals, and microprocessors, ensures the student will develop the skills necessary to perform entry and intermediate-level tasks. Emphasis is placed on developing the student’s ability to analyze and troubleshoot electronic systems.

Pitt Community College offers a comprehensive and exhaustive curriculum within the Electronics Engineering Technology program. Students within the program will first be required to take several core electronics courses, such as basic AC and DC fundamentals, digital electronics, semiconductors, computer repair, electronic communications, and others. Then, the student will choose elective courses within the electronics engineering program that fit their career goals. Elective courses would include choices such as industrial automation electronics, PLC fundamentals, fundamentals of lasers, computer integrated manufacturing, hydraulics and pneumatics, and several additional classes. See the Program of Study for more information.

Graduates should qualify for employment as engineering assistants or electronic technicians with job titles such as electronics engineering technician, field service technician, biomedical technician, maintenance technician, electronic systems integrator, bench technician, instrument calibration specialist, robotics technician, automation technician, production control technician, plus many, many more.

Students enrolled full-time and making satisfactory progress should complete this program in about five semesters. Additional time may be needed to achieve minimum requirements in English, Math and/or Science.

This program also has certificate options in Basic Electronics, Automation Technology, Biomedical Electronics, and Computer Technology. For more information, contact us.
