Today’s electronics engineering technician must always be ready to serve our dynamic society. The expanding domain of electronics technology has reached into and overlapped many other disciplines. Electronic technicians of today are different from those of only a few years ago. The Electronic Engineering Technology Program at Naugatuck Valley Community College offers a curriculum that is designed to prepare students for these new career opportunities. The program emphasizes the fundamentals of electric and electronic circuit theory and analysis, but also stresses the role of computers, computer software, CAD systems, microprocessors, robotics, digital systems, programmable logic controllers (PLC’s), various laboratory instruments, data acquisition and control systems. Students gain practical “hands-on” experience by using electronic instruments, microprocessors and computers. Also, a thorough knowledge of digital/electronic circuits is acquired, along with experience in electronic fabrication techniques and the design of printed circuit boards. As a result of the training and preparation provided by our program, the Electronic Engineering Technology graduate is an important and much sought after contributor to the engineering team in Connecticut’s ever-changing high technology industries. Typical job entry titles include: Engineering Technician, Research Technician, Customer Engineer, Field Service Technician, Test/Service Manager, Repair Technician, Assistant Engineer and Electronics Technician.
