The Electronics and Computer Engineering Technology degree and certificate programs prepare individuals either for initial employment or for enhancement of existing skills in electronics, or for transfer into B.S. programs in Electronics and Computer Engineering Technology or Industrial Technology offered in the California State University system.
The 45 semester units of electronics courses consist of 558 hours of classroom instruction and 648 hours of laboratory work. In addition to training in electronics fundamentals, the program includes advanced course work in microcontrollers and interfaces, electronic communications (analog and digital), and industrial electronics. Specialized training is offered on the following:
Computer skills are enhanced by course work in Windows, Microsoft Office (word processing, spreadsheets, database, and presentations), and the internet. Also offered is a course in computer simulation and troubleshooting for both digital and analog electronic circuits using the Multisim circuit-simulation suite of software from National Instruments.
Excluding textbooks and supplemental charges, enrollment fees for full-time, California resident students taking 12 units are $432 per semester ($36 per unit); state funding covers all other costs. Financial aid is available for those who qualify.
