Electronics Engineering Technology – Programming – Associate Degree
About the Program
Electronics engineering technicians assist in the design, development, testing and maintenance of advanced control systems used in automated production facilities. These technicians work in power plants, chemical production facilities, automotive and tire manufacturing, food processing plants, and environmental control agencies, as well as many other automated control applications. Engineering Technology is applied to a wide variety of systems in the area of process control that require specialized programming to ensure that these control systems operate efficiently and automatically.
The specialization in Engineering Technology Programming prepares technicians to install, program, operate, maintain, service and diagnose control system operational problems encountered on a routine basis as well as prepare for new installations and system upgrades.
OCtech has approved articulation agreements with Columbia College, South Carolina State University, USC’s Palmetto College.
