ASET Home General Information  

The associate of applied science degree with specialization in industrial electricity/electronics technology is designed to provide the theory and application of principles, procedures and components that technicians encounter in modern industrial environments. Subject matter ranges from fundamental electrical, electronic and digital theory to process control of automated systems. The program also stresses effective oral and written communication as well as related mathematics and science.

The program is supported by application of theoretical concepts via laboratory exercises in modern, well-equipped facilities. The emphasis of the program is to provide students with the knowledge and skills needed to function effectively in the increasingly technical environment of modern industry.

Electrical apprentices will find this program to be an attractive way to utilize the credits they have earned while pursing their journeyman status to complete an associate of applied science degree. Other individuals who are working in industrial-electrical/electronics environments will also find it to be a meaningful path to an associate of applied science degree. Graduates of this program will be prepared for entry-level employment in the following areas:

• Industrial electrician
• Electromechanical technician
• Industrial sales technician
• Field service technician
• Automated systems technician

It should be noted that many of the specialty courses from the program are available only in the evening. They are offered on a sequential basis, which will make completion of the program exceed two calendar years. Check with the Industrial Technology Division Office for further information.

In addition to completion of the required general education courses, students desiring the program designation on their transcript must complete the required core and specialized courses.
