Electronics Technology, Specialization in Electrical Engineering Technology (981-04), Associate of Applied Science Degree

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.

Articulation Agreement: Students who are interested in transferring to Old Dominion University to continue the AAS Electronics Technology-Electrical Engineering to BS Engineering Tech to Electrical Engineering   plan should meet with Academic Advising early to determine and discuss requirements.
