Certificate Options

The Electronics Engineering program currently offers three certificates designed to strategically prepare the student for specialized knowledge in the electronics industry. They are valid alternatives when the student cannot accommodate the commitment needed for the degree program. The courses that comprise each certificate are also currently offered within our night program, as well, for convenience.

The Basic Electronics Technology Certificate is for students that want a solid foundation in digital and analog electronic theory. This certificate includes the courses necessary for only a basic understanding of electronic fundamentals.

The Computer Technology Certificate is for students desiring to supplement their current knowledge in the growing area of computers. This certificate will equip the student with the courses needed to better prepare them for working in the computer industry as a computer sales associate, computer technician, system installer, small business network administrator, or even a website or server administrator.

The Automation Technology Certificate is designed to prepare the student for advancement in their current employment in the manufacturing environment, or to equip them to quickly enter a career in the manufacturing or automation industries.
