+ Prerequisite required
Completion of this program with an average grade “C” or higher provides for automatic continuation at Central Connecticut State University’s School of Technology or Charter Oak State College, where the student can earn a bachelor of science degree in engineering technology, industrial technology, or technology education.
The objective of the associate degree program is to provide our students higher level electronic technical skills. Install, analyze and troubleshoot electronic systems; use and configure computer hardware, operating systems and basic networks; apply electronic circuit simulation software for circuit design and analysis; troubleshoot electronic equipment; and program PLC’s & robots.
Career Opportunities for Electronics Control Technicians Include: R&D, Instrumentation, Engineering Assistant, Robotics,and equipment set-up and maintenance. Employment growth is projected for electrical and electronics technicians. In fact, many job openings will result from the graying of the workforce.
Completion of this certificate will qualify the student for positions as diverse as R & D Technician, Robotics/Automated Systems Specialists, Electronics Technician, and Electronics Maintenance Technician. Additional experience and education will position the student/employee to advance to foreman in manufacturing operations, move into the operational management arena, or pursue more engineering or manufacturing education.
