Learn how to design and work with HDTVs, computers, wireless communication and alternative energy systems with an associate degree in Electrical Engineering Technology from Gateway Technical College. Electrical and electronic engineering technicians help engineers design and develop computers, communication equipment, medical monitoring devices and navigational equipment. Technicians may also work in product evaluation and testing, using measuring and diagnostic devices to adjust, test and repair equipment.
At Gateway, hands-on learning is incorporated into all program courses. Students learn how to take projects from the development stage to the production line. This experience-building style of training allows the student to cover many advanced electrical and electronics topics such as DC and AC electronics, advanced transistor theory, microprocessors, industrial electronics and electronic communications. The program also offers a set of “self-paced courses” during day and evening blocks of time. Students taking these courses can set their own schedule as long as the course work is completed by the end of the semester, but they can also finish early.
