The Associate of Applied Science Degree in Engineering Technology - Network Electronics prepares students with the necessary skills required by today’s high-tech, high-wage networking/electronics industry. Instruction includes networking and electronic topics such as IP network configuration and maintenance, electronics and digital circuits, and interfacing sensors and control devices to networks and electronic systems. This two-year program provides the students with the methods and procedures used by technicians in the networked electronics industry. Instruction depends on significant hands-on exercises in a state-of-the-art environment.
Within a few years of graduation: Graduates from CSN’s Network Electronics Engineering Technology Program will demonstrate the ability to apply technical, managerial, design and application skills necessary to install, manage, operate, and maintain networked electronics systems. Graduates will have effective technical communication skills necessary to function on professional teams. Graduates are prepared to enter the working force with professional work ethics, with the commitment to lifelong learning, quality and continuous improvement through the clear ability to assume increasing levels of responsibility in both industry and community.
