Program Description

Today's emphasis on sophisticated electronic hardware techniques requires that the two-year Electrical Engineering Technology (ELT) graduate be well schooled in fundamental concepts relating to AC and DC circuit analysis, electronics, special devices, power, communications, as well as digital hardware and software techniques.

 

As an engineering technician, you will work with engineers in the area of research and development, design, and modern manufacturing methods.

As an ELT student at Onondaga Community College, you will receive a solid background in the liberal arts in addition to courses in your field of specialization. Onondaga's faculty have relevant industrial experience in addition to advanced engineering degrees.

To enroll in the Electrical Engineering Technology A.A.S. program, you will need two years of high school mathematics.

Once you graduate with an A.A.S. degree in Electrical Engineering Technology from Onondaga, you will be prepared to seek employment opportunities in the field or pursue a bachelor's degree (B.S.). A wide range of employment possibilities exists in the area of design, manufacturing, sales, and service. If you wish to pursue a B.S. degree in engineering technology you can be accepted as a third year student at many four-year colleges.

Graduation Requirement: All students in the Electrical Technology program must have a minimum grade of C- in the following courses: ELT 141, 142, 161, 261 and CMT 171, 190.

Please note: If you wish to pursue a B.S.E.E. degree in electrical or computer engineering, you should consult with an advisor.
