Electronics engineering technicians help design, develop, test, and manufacture electrical and electronic equipment such as radios, radar, sonar, television, industrial and medical measuring or control devices, navigational equipment and computers. They may work in product evaluation and testing, using measuring and diagnostic devices to adjust, test and repair equipment. Electronics Engineering Technology is also applied to a wide variety of systems, such as communications, automation, and process controls.
The specialization in Computer Electronics prepares technicians to install, program, operate, maintain, service and diagnose computers with operational problems arising from mechanical or electrical malfunctions in either individual units or systems.
