An Associate degree in Computer Electronics Technology is designed for students who desire a new career in the electronics industries or who seek career advancement by upgrading their current technology expertise. The rapid growth of computer-based business and industry has led to a similar demand for expertise in the design and repair of digital-based computer hardware. This program focuses on the theoretical and hands-on understanding of solid-state devices and the digital control of computer-based industrial electronic equipment. Recent graduates are working in the field as electronics designers, electrical equipment installers, component testers, and consumer electronics and computer technicians. Students develop other skills associated with electronics through laboratory experience and course lectures in computer-aided drafting and robotics. All classes are taught by nationally recognized experts and award-winning faculty.
The courses required for earning an Associate Degree in Computer Electronics Technology are in three basic categories: liberal studies—for the development of critical skills in English composition, technical writing, mathematics, and the natural, behavioral, or social sciences; Computer Electronics Technology core courses—for developing a fundamental understanding of electrical circuitry, solid state devices, digital circuitry, micro-processor architecture and control, servo and non-servo robotic control; and Computer Science.
