Electronic Engineering Technology
Engineering technicians use the principles and theories of science, engineering, and mathematics to solve technical problems in research and development, manufacturing, sales, construction, inspection, and maintenance. Their work is more limited in scope and more practically oriented than that of scientists and engineers. Many engineering technicians assist engineers and scientists, especially in research and development. Others work in quality control—inspecting products and processes, conducting tests, or collecting data. In manufacturing, they may assist in product design, development, or production.
Engineering technicians who work in research and development build or set up equipment, prepare and conduct experiments, collect data, calculate or record the results, and help engineers or scientists in other ways, such as making prototype versions of newly designed equipment. They also assist in design work, often using computer-aided design equipment.
Most engineering technicians specialize in certain areas, learning skills and working in the same disciplines as engineers. Occupational titles, therefore, tend to follow the same structure as those of engineers.
Educational Opportunities in Electrical Engineering Technology
Associate of Applied Science in Electronic Engineering Technology – Applied Electronics
The Applied Electronics program is structured to provide a student with an application-oriented, electronic/electrical background, extensive hands-on laboratory experience, and the use of standard and specialized test equipment.
The applied electronics major is approved by the Federal Aviation Administration as a part of the College Training Initiative, through which students are eligible for part-time (work-study) employment with the FAA or full-time employment after graduation.
One-Year Technical Certificate in Electronic Engineering Technology - Applied Electronics
The One Year Technical Certificate in Electronic Engineering Technology is structured to provide a student with an application-oriented, electronic/electrical background, hands-on laboratory experience, and the use of standard and specialized test equipment. The relevant knowledge, the skills that industry needs today, and the competencies that are integrated into the curriculum are intended to prepare the graduate for an entry level position or an internship in the field of electronics. Every course in the One Year Technical Certificate program can be applied to the two year Associate of Applied Science degree in Electronic Engineering Technology - Applied Electronics Major.
Associate of Applied Science in Electronic Engineering Technology – Computer Maintenance and Networking
The computer maintenance and networking program provides a solid foundation in the principles of electronics, with an emphasis on the installation, maintenance, and repair of computer systems, networks, and associated equipment. Along with a broad, general electronics background, students are given comprehensive information and training in computer system structure, peripheral device operation, installation procedures, and troubleshooting practices through this extensive, hands-on oriented curriculum.
One-Year Certificate in Electronic Engineering Technology – Computer Maintenance and Networking
This program is designed to provide students with the knowledge and practical skills to install, upgrade, and maintain personal computer systems and networks.
Short-Term Certificate in Computer Maintenance and Networking
The Computer Maintenance and Networking (CMNW) short-term certificate is designed to provide the student with the knowledge and practical skills necessary for entry-level employment in the areas of installation, upgrading and maintaining personal computer systems and networks.
A+ Certification Preparation Available
A+ certification is a widely accepted certification that demonstrates expert knowledge of hardware technologies. This is an excellent certification for anyone looking to enter into the world of information technology.
A+ certification requires you to demonstrate knowledge of installing, configuring, upgrading, troubleshooting and repairing desktop systems. The LCCC A+ certification requires completion of only two courses, and credits can apply toward LCCC’s Computer Maintenance and Networking certificate of completion, certificate of proficiency and associate’s degree programs.

The University of Toledo
Bachelor of Science in Computer Science and Engineering
The Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) is an interdisciplinary field, which deals with the design, construction, operation, and maintenance of computing hardware and software. In this program, students explore the interaction between modern computer science and related technologies that have evolved the mathematical and design principles of engineering into the development of modern computing system.
Bachelor of Science in Computer Science and Engineering Technology
The program in Computer Science and Engineering Technology (CSET) includes hardware and software aspects of both computer design and computer applications.
Computer design emphasizes the structure of computers and requires expertise in computational applications, digital design, microcomputer systems and computer architectures.
Computer applications emphasizes the use of computer software in engineering technology and requires both low-level and high-level programming techniques, the use of mathematical algorithms, and a general knowledge of computer operating systems.
