Purpose: The Electronics Technology programs are designed to prepare students for entry into or further their skill-sets toward continued employment and/or advancement. Graduates are prepared for positions such as communications, electrical/electronics technicians, electrical/electronics entry-level engineers, and similar roles.

Applied degrees (AAS/AAA) are designed to prepare students for entry into the workforce. Students are given a new and innovative way of looking at the math to better understand its purpose and application. Under a formal articulation agreement with Old Dominion University, students enrolled in this career/technical program who wish to pursue baccalaureate studies will be able to transfer this entire program into a senior institution toward a related baccalaureate degree program.

Students interested in transferring should see the program head early in their academic plan along with consulting ODU’s catalog, transfer guide, and website for additional information.
