Graduates may also use this program as a foundation to the engineering technology program at other senior institutions such as Old Dominion University, Virginia State University, University of North Carolina, and University of Tennessee.
The electronics curriculum is a two-year program combining instruction required for competence as technician, associate engineer, engineer in training, etc. in business and industry. The first year
of the electronics curriculum is designed to establish a general basis in mathematics and electronics circuits. The second year develops this basis in a number of important areas of electronics such as computers, control circuits, measurements and communications. Instruction includes both the theoretical concepts and practical applications needed for future success in electronics. Students are advised to consult with their faculty advisor or a counselor for assistance in planning their program. It should be noted that students planning to transfer will be required to take MTH 163 and MTH 168.
