Electronics Engineering Technology
The Electronics Engineering Technology program provides theory and hands-on practical training in repairing electronic equipment. Students are trained to use measurement tools such as digital multimeters and oscilloscopes. Circuit construction techniques include printed circuit board fabrication and both surface-mount and through-hole component soldering.
The Electronics Engineering Technology program is offered in two tracks:
Electronics Technology, Track 1, is for repairing any type of electronic equipment including computers, stereos, and hand-held microprocessor equipment.
Biomedical Equipment, Track 2, covers many of the same basic topics but focuses on the repair of medical equipment used in hospitals. Note: This track will be replaced with the Biomedical Equipment Technology Associate Degree beginning Fall 2014.
Students may complete the Electronics Engineering Technology program in six semesters and receive an Associate in Applied Science degree. Graduates are prepared for employment in the electronics field. The credits earned at Durham Technical Community College may be transferred to a number of universities toward a Bachelor of Electronics Technology (BSET) degree.
