This program prepares students for high-technology jobs in all electronic fields such as semiconductor manufacturing, bio-medical repair, cellular telephone system repair, assembly line supervising, soldering technology and computer repair. Work may include use of electronic test equipment, analog and digital circuit design and  fabrication, through-hole and surface mount soldering and re-work, Electronic Design Automation (EDA), microprocessor architecture, programming, and digital and analog communications.

The second-year option provides specialized training in electronics, advanced technology or energy systems. Each option is used in a wide variety of industries. Upon completion of the first year, students may take the Manufacturing Skill Standards Council (MSSC)** test, which demonstrates competency in production, logistics and inventory control, quality assurance, maintenance, installation and repair, health, safety, and environmental assurance, and production process development.
