Technology is central to the economy of the 21st century, and the demand for
skilled technicians continues to increase steadily. Knowledge and skills in
electronics are essential for those seeking careers in manufacturing, service,
and technical sales and support.
The Electronics Technology Certificate provides students with a foundation of
core Electronics skills and knowledge that has a broad application in the field
of electronics. These skills are essential to anyone pursuing a career in
high-tech manufacturing, equipment installation and support, telecommunications,
photonics, or technical sales and support.
The requirements for the Electronics Technology Certificate are included in
clusters A and B, which is the first year core curriculum, of the associate
Degree programs in Electronics, Electromechanical, and Telecommunications
Technology. The Certificate requires 29 credits, which can be completed in two
semesters of full-time study. This is useful for those who are looking for a
short-term educational program that can be completed in one year. Students who
earn the certificate may then continue on toward one of the associate degree
paths in the future.
