The Electronic Engineering Technology Program concentrates on the use of principles and theories of science, engineering, and mathematics to solve technical problems in research and development, manufacturing, sales, construction, and maintenance. Through the use of modern electronic laboratories, the student will become familiar with the areas of electronics, including circuit analysis, analog and digital integrated circuits, discrete semiconductor devices, electronic communications, and linear operational amplifier circuits. The student will also become familiar with C++ programming and microcontrollers using assembly language programming.
This program provides students with knowledge of currently established design and laboratory techniques.
The U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of Statistics (BLS) reports that one of the top ten best paying jobs for individuals with an associate degree is the Engineering Technician, with positive job growth expected through 2026.
In addition to the general admission requirements, Electronics Engineering Technology applicants should be aware of the following criteria:
Completion of high school Algebra I, Algebra II and Geometry are recommended as well as other high school courses such as physics, chemistry, electronics and computer programming. Basic writing skills in English are required. Accepted students will be required to possess or purchase approximately $100 of minor accessories.
The Electronic Engineering Technology program prepares graduates to have competence in the following curricular areas:
- the application of circuit analysis and design, computer programming, associated software, analog and digital electronics, and microcomputers, and engineering standards to the building, testing, operation, and maintenance of electrical/electronic(s) systems; and
- the application of natural sciences and mathematics at or above the level of algebra and trigonometry to the building, testing, operation, and maintenance of electrical/electronic systems.
Technical Standards: Please refer to Technical Standards for details regarding this program.
NCC has a 2+2 agreement with UNH-Manchester which allows graduates to transfer to UNH-M with only 2 more years to complete their Bachelor of Science degree in electronic engineering technology.
