Electronics Engineering Associate


Associate of Science (VA and NC) or Associate of Applied Science (SC) in Electronics Engineering Technology

Electronics Engineering Overview

Today’s highly-automated workplace has elevated productivity to new levels. Advanced systems are anchored by an array of electrical and electronic equipment. To keep operations running smoothly, employers need Electronics Engineering Technologists. They assist with the development, testing, and production of such things as circuit boards, wireless phones, PDAs, medical equipment, and control systems.

If this sounds like a career you might be interested in, consider ECPI University. Through ECPI’s year-round schedule, you could earn an Associate of Science Degree in Electronics Engineering Technology (Associate of Applied Science in Electronics Engineering Technology – South Carolina only) in as little as 1.5 years. 

At the Charlotte, NC Campus location only, you can also study learn how to set up, maintain, and troubleshoot radiological and fluoroscopy medical equipment. Working with medical imaging technology and systems, you can develop electronics, mechanics, and networking skills. Career opportunities often require relocation and working in a medical environment.
