Electronics Engineering Technology

From computers to smart phones and smart houses, electronics play a major role in our lives. Our Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree in electronics engineering technology prepares you for a career in a wide range of electronics positions in high-tech industries.

We offer a two-year AAS degree in electronics engineering technology and three progressive shorter-term certificates.

Why Study Electronics Engineering Technology at Front Range Community College?

Our two-year AAS degree prepares you to enter the workforce. You'll explore electronics fundamental theories, applications and troubleshooting. A combination of hands-on lab activities and computer simulations prepare you for a career in a wide range of electronics positions. You'll learn how to use standard electronic test equipment, such as oscilloscopes, digital multimeters and power supplies.

A certificate from FRCC gives you relevant skills to strengthen your knowledge base and give your résumé a boost. Our three certificates are “stackable,” so you can earn one, or all three in succession.

Whether you want a deep dive into electronic devices and equipment—or you want an overview of fundamentals like industrial wiring, motors and control, and digital systems — FRCC has a program for you.
