Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Academic Programs

Associate of Applied Science Degree

The associate of applied science degree with specialization in electrical engineering technology is designed to provide the theory and application of principles, procedures and components that technicians encounter in modern industrial environments. Graduates typically find employment as industrial electricians, engineering aides, laboratory technicians and field service representatives. Electrical apprentices will find this program to be an attractive way to utilize the credits they have earned while pursuing their journeyman status to complete an associate of applied science degree. Many graduates transfer to nearby universities that offer bachelor of engineering technology degrees or bachelor of applied science degrees on a “2+2” basis - two years at the community college and two years at the university. These graduates generally obtain engineering positions and often advance into management.

Career Opportunities

The program provides a solid foundation in general electricity/electronics. Throughout, the program maintains a commitment of “hands-on” laboratory applications to support and reinforce theoretical discussions of circuits. To this end, the Electrical-Electronics Troubleshooting course includes the construction of a finished electronic power supply that students may keep at their option. Graduates of this program will be prepared for entry-level employment in the following areas:

  • Automated systems technician
  • Computer maintenance technician
  • Electrical designer
  • Electromechanical technician
  • Electronic systems test technician
  • Electronics technician
  • Engineering aide
  • Field service technician
  • Industrial electrician
  • Industrial sales technician
