Instructional Program (CIP)
The Electronics Technology Degree Program is intended for students
currently employed in or re-entering the electronics field. The
courses, offered in partnership with Northwest Technical Institute
(NTI), allow students to upgrade their technical skills or to acquire
the additional general education necessary to advance into
supervision or management.
The electronics industry is characterized by rapid technological
advances and has grown faster than most other industriesover the
past 30 years. Much of the continuing growth in this industry is
expected to be among the professional specialty occupations.
Electronic semiconductor processors and electrical and electronic
assemblers will also grow faster than the industry average. Highly
skilled technical personnel should be able to take advantage of the
increasingly sophisticated level of manufacturing technology as
industries become more integrated and manufacturing processes
more advanced. Employment of electronics production workers and
managers is expected to grow more slowly than average.
In general, earnings in the electronics industry are high, although
this is partly because many of the lower wage production jobs have
been automated or exported to other countries. Average weekly
earnings of all production and nonsupervisory workers in the
industry were higher than the weekly average for all industries.
Students interested in the electronics technology field need to have
an aptitude for math and science and the ability to keep up with
rapidly changing technology. A culminating internship in the
program allows students to apply the technical knowledge they have
learned in classes and labs to specific positions in area industries.
Graduates of the program will receive an A.A.S. degree in Electronics
