Electronics Engineering Technology Certificates

  • The Basic Electronics certificate provides the student with a program of study necessary for developing basic electronic skills. The student will gain an understanding of AC/DC basic circuits, digital circuits, and basic electronic devices. Courses are an adjunct of the Electronics Engineering Technology program and may be transferred directly toward completion of the A.A.S. degree in Electronics Engineering Technology.

  • The PLC Programming Certificate provides the student with the basic technical skills and knowledge necessary to work with the Programmable Logic Controllers typically found in an industrial environment. The program investigates the operation and programming of PLCs and the interfacing of PLCs to electronic devices and sensors routinely found in industrial controls. Students entering the program are expected to have a basic knowledge of AC and DC electrical circuits. 

  • The SCADA Systems Certificate provides the student with technical skills and knowledge necessary to work with data acquisition systems commonly found in industrial process control applications. The program includes the operation, programming, and interfacing of PLCs as well as using data acquisition software to monitor, gather, and process real-time data. Students entering the program are expected to have a basic knowledge of AC and DC electrical circuits.

  • The Instrumentation Certificate provides the student with technical skills and knowledge necessary to work with control and instrumentation systems found in manufacturing plants and research institutions. The program includes coursework in sensors, SCADA and data acquisition, instrumentation diagrams, and control system tuning. Students entering the program are expected to have a basic knowledge of AC and DC electrical circuits.

  • The Embedded Systems Certificate program provides the student with technical skills and knowledge necessary to work in the design and development of embedded systems commonly found in industrial control, communications, building automation, etc. The program includes coursework in digital electronics, C programming, and programming and interfacing microprocessors and microcontrollers. Students entering the program are expected to have a basic knowledge of electrical circuits.
