Engineering technicians use the principles and theories of science, engineering, and mathematics to solve technical problems in various industries. They may work with electrical machinery, electrical control equipment and circuitry, computers, and other electrical components. Typical job titles include engineering assistant, electronic test technician, instrumentation technician, field service representative, communication specialist, and sales engineer.

The electronic engineering program provides you with an application-oriented, electronic/electrical background, extensive hands-on laboratory experience, and the use of standard and specialized test equipment. This fundamental knowledge and real-world experience will prepare you to work in a high-tech workplace in the challenging and rewarding field of electronics.

Career Opportunities

As a technician, your work will be more practical than theoretical and may be more limited in scope than that of scientists and engineers. However, you may assist engineers and scientists in research and development. You may work in quality control inspecting products and processes, conducting tests, or collecting data. In manufacturing, you may assist in product design, development, or production.

The program offers a one-year certificate and an associate degree. Of course, you may choose to further your education beyond LCCC through our University Partnership or transfer programs.

Getting started while you’re still in high school

You don’t have to wait to graduate from high school to start earning college credit.

The College Credit Plus program offers you an opportunity to earn college credit as early as seventh grade. Courses are frequently offered on-site at local high schools. Students may also have the option of taking LCCC classes online or on our campus. Classes taken through CCP count for both high school and college credit and are FREE for most students. 

The MyUniversity program, a unique partnership between LCCC and area high schools, provides a pathway for high school students to the full college experience – starting in high school!
