An Associate degree in Computer Electronics Technology is designed for students who desire a new career in the electronics industries or who seek career advancement by upgrading their current technology expertise. The rapid growth of computer-based business and industry has led to a similar demand for expertise in the design and repair of digital-based computer hardware. This program focuses on the theoretical and hands-on understanding of the digital design, installation, interfacing and control of computer-based industrial electronic equipment. Recent graduates are working in the field as electronics designers, electrical equipment installers, component testers, and consumer electronics and computer technicians. Students develop other skills associated with electronics through laboratory experience and course lectures in computer networking and web design.
Curriculum guides are designed to help students stay on track for timely graduation. In order to remain on track, students must complete the minimum requirements for each tracking semester, known as milestones. Milestones may include successful completion of specified courses and/or attainment of a minimum GPA.
Following the sample academic plan and its milestones will help students stay on track to graduate in four years. Students will need to refer to and/or print both the appropriate Liberal Studies Requirements AND the appropriate major sheet in order to view the complete degree program requirements.
- Liberal Studies General Core Requirements
- Liberal Studies Requirements: Whitney Young School Honors Program
The courses required for earning an Associate degree in Computer Graphics and Multimedia Production Technology are in three basic categories:
- Liberal Studies—for the development of critical skills in English composition, technical writing, mathematics, and the natural, behavioral, or social sciences;
- Computer Electronics Technology core courses – for developing a fundamental understanding of electrical circuitry, digital circuitry, microprocessor architecture and computer networking; and web design and development for a broader understanding of the application of computer technology.
