The Associate of Applied Science in Industrial Electronics builds on skills developed in the Industrial Electronics Technician Certificate of Proficiency and Technical Certificate. Students extend their knowledge of electrical and electronic theory, test equipment, interpreting schematic diagrams, repair techniques, basic circuit design, and simulation techniques, sensor theory and operation and interfacing electrical and electronic equipment with computer systems.

The program especially emphasizes training students on cutting-edge industrial technology, including networked programmable logic controllers (PLCs), solid state variable frequency motor drives, robotics, and machine vision systems. This field is an area of critical importance to industry in the face of mounting global competition in the manufacturing sector and presents excellent opportunities for rewarding careers. Due to the broad range of skills in demand in this field, the degree has several elective options and opportunities for internship that allow students to tailor their programs to specific industries or areas of interest. Additionally, specific course requirements may be modified to accommodate student career goals with written approval of the Dean. ET 2001 Internship is available for students interested in improving their technical skills and making contacts within the industry.

The Industrial Electronics Technician Certificate builds on the skills developed in the Certificate of Proficiency and provides students more advanced skills in computer aided design and manufacturing, mechanical and hydraulic systems, and electrical and electronic troubleshooting. This program prepares students for more advanced study in the AAS Engineering Technology options. Additionally, this certificate may be used as the principal technical discipline required for the AAS in General Technology. ET 2001 Engineering Technology Internship is available for students interested in improving their technical skills and making contacts within the industry.

The Industrial Electronics Technician Certificate of Proficiency develops skills necessary for entry level employment in the manufacturing or industrial maintenance fields. Students will develop basic skills in mathematics, information technology, drafting and design, and manufacturing processes. This program prepares students for more advanced work in the Engineering Technology Technical Certificate or the AAS in Engineering Technology. Additionally, this certificate may be used as one of the minor technical disciplines required for the AAS in General Technology. ET 2001 Engineering Technology Internship is available for students interested in improving their technical skills and making contacts within the industry.
