Electrical Engineering Technology*
A.A.S. Degree, Certificate
A complex system of computers and electronics wires our world together. Industries are becoming more dependent on advanced technology and organizations of all kinds need men and women skilled in electronics. The program provides a solid background in analog and digital electronics and in microprocessor and computer programming. The A.A.S. degree prepares you for technician-level positions in research and development, product design, and manufacturing. It also provides a solid academic base for transfer to a four-year institution’s bachelor of technology program.

As manufacturers turn to electronics, both as an end product and as a means of controlling production processes, they must find men and women trained in electronics. Graduates of the electrical technology: electronics and computer systems degree program at TC3 fill the needs of these rapidly expanding local, national, and international companies. Recent graduates have found employment at Intertek Testing Services (ITS) Inc., Borg Warner Automotive, Cornell University, and Precision Filters, Inc.
While the intent of this program is to prepare students for employment, this degree does provide a base for students considering transfer to four-year institutions to pursue a bachelor of technology degree. Recent graduates have continued their education at a four-year college or university for a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Technology degree (B.S.E.T). Transfer institutions include:
