Description: The Associate in Applied Science (AAS) in Electronics Engineering Technology is designed to give students a foundation of experience important in engineering assistants, field engineers, prototype designers, specification writers, technical representatives, and in other positions in organizations that specialize in electronic design, manufacturing, service, and development. Students with this degree may work in industries that include, but are not limited to, aerospace, biotechnology, communications, entertainment, industrial, medical, power, semiconductor, and transportation. The Electronics Engineering Technology program is designed to enable industry employment while still providing transfer credits to a four year engineering program.
