What is 'Electronics Technology?'

Electronics technology is the study of electronics principles, techniques, materials, devices, and the applied mathematics and science needed for those studies.

Is it for you?

Electronics technologists frequently work as members of engineering teams in the areas of installation, maintenance, manufacturing, product development, and other applications of electronics products and devices.  They may also work in the services industry in customer support and field engineering.  Other industries such as utilities and telecommunications employ many electronics technologists.
