Electronics Engineering Technology
Electronics engineering technology is the foundation for all modern technologies. Any technology field that claims to be advanced or high-tech relies on electronic components and circuitry. Lasers, fiber-optics, robotics, automation, wireless networks, biomedical equipment, space exploration and industrial processing are cutting-edge technologies made possible by electronic technology.
Electronics engineering technology enables 21st-century technology to become faster, smarter and more exciting! Technicians install, service, maintain, troubleshoot and repair electronic systems, including robots and automation systems.
