Electronics Technology

Imagine making a living from your fascination with gadgets. You can, with a career in Electronics.

Electronics is the study of the flow of charge through various materials and devices such as semiconductors, resistors, inductors, capacitors, nano-structures, and vacuum tubes. Considered a theoretical branch of physics, electronics is also the design and construction of electronic circuits to solve practical problems in engineering.

The Electronics program at MCC offers you two degree paths: Electronics Technology, which has a purely occupational focus, and Electronics Engineering Technology, which was designed in collaboration with ASU Polytechnic to maximize transferability. Both degrees prepare you to work as an electronics technician, manufacturing supervisor, test equipment specialist, prototype fabricator, and more for companies that specialize in electronic design, manufacturing, service, and development.

Our program provides you with a broad algebra-based background and emphasizes current needs and trends in the electronics industry. Also offered is a one-year certificate and individual courses you can use to upgrade your skills in any area of Electronics.

Our curriculum prepares you for the Certified Electronics Technician examination offered by the International Society of Certified Electronics Technicians (ISCET). A certified representative of the ISCET is on staff in the department to provide more information.
