Electronics Engineering Technology Transfer Option
Associate Degree Program
Electronics are revolutionizing the world we live in and enhance our lives through a wide-range of devices…from cell phones to life-saving medical equipment. Individuals with the skills needed to build the electronic circuits that drive these -- and many other useful machines -- are in demand.
Electronics engineering technologists assist engineers in the design of electronics by diagnosing, testing and analyzing the performance of equipment. They also modify, maintain, repair and install components and entire systems according to specifications.
Delaware Tech’s associate degree program will prepare students for transfer to a baccalaureate electrical and electronics engineering technology program that leads to a career as an electronics engineering technologist. Rigorous mathematics, physics, computer technology and electronics courses prepare students for their final two years of study at a four-year institution. View the section on Connected Degree programs below to learn more about your options for transfer.
This program is offered at the Dover, Georgetown and Stanton campuses.
