The Electrical/Electronic Fundamentals Certificate Program emphasizes the basic skills needed to begin careers in either the electrical or electronics engineering technology fields. Designed for high school graduates or those entering industry for the first time, the program covers six important areas. These areas include an introduction to electrical/electronic technology; engineering technology techniques; electric circuits; electronic circuits; CAD drawing; and computer systems and applications such as word processing and spreadsheets.
Students who complete this certificate program will be qualified for entry-level positions in industry.
Certificate holders can work as technicians in any area involving electricity and electronics, for example: warehousing and distribution, automation control systems, medical electronics, networks and telephones, power generation and distribution, safety and security, design, production, and maintenance. Five of the six courses (CENT 1310 ,EETC 1313 , EETC 1321 , ENST 1313 and ENTC 1114 ) in the certificate program will transfer to the Electrical Engineering Technology A.A.S. degree (Electrical Design Concentration).
