Associate of Applied Science
The Electronics Engineering Technology Program at CCM prepares students for positions in electronics industries and related electronics services. Job activities center on technical problem solving and the practical application of engineering. The Electronics Engineering Technology Program produces graduates that are employed and operate effectively in the positions of Electrical Technicians, Equipment Managers, Information Technology Developers and Quality Control Operators. It also produces graduates that can successfully transfer and complete a baccalaureate degree in electronics engineering technology.
The faculty in the Electronics Engineering Program at CCM have many years of teaching and industry experience. The program has core electronic courses sequenced along with applied mathematics and science to develop a broad background in the technology. Each electronics course contains a laboratory which utilizes modern test instruments and applies classroom theory to practical applications.
In the second year of study, students interested in health-related fields may select Biomedical Equipment options. In this option, students develop a specialization in equipment used in the healthcare industry, learning how to maintain and repair the equipment.
This program is through on campus learning between lectures and laboratory for students on high-end computers and equipment.
Electronic engineering technologists and technicians work on teams with electrical engineers. They may work in offices, laboratories, or factories in the following jobs. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor, the median annual wage for electrical and electronic engineering technologists and technicians in 2021 was $63,640.
- Clinical Operations Manager
- Control Automation/Technician
- Controls Engineer
- Engineering Technician
- Health Technology Management
- Information Technology Manager
- Quality Engineer
- Senior Technical Support Engineer
This program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET.
In addition to the general scholarships available at the college, Glenbrook Technologies, NDIA John Amerspek, NDIA Rodney Frelinghuysen, NDIA Dean Gallo, offer scholarships.

- An understanding of the need for and an ability to engage in self-directed continuing professional development.
After obtaining an Associate in Applied Science Degree, it is possible to continue at a four-year college and to complete a Bachelor of Science Degree in Engineering Technology. No prior knowledge of electronics is necessary to enter the Electronics Engineering Technology program. Core electronics courses are sequenced along with applied mathematics and science to develop a broad background in the technology. Each electronics course contains a laboratory, which utilizes modern test instruments and applies classroom theory to practical applications. In the second year of study, students interested in health-related fields may select the Biomedical Equipment option (Program Code 3601). Cooperative Education, a work-study program with local electronic firms, is available.
ThisÂ option in the Electronics Engineering Technology programÂ is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org, under the Electronic Engineering Technology program criteria.
CCM offers cooperative education, a work-study program with local electronic firms for students in the biomedical option, cooperative education opportunities are available with Atlantic Health System. Further internships are with Mecca Electronics, BASF, Honeywell, and Siemens.
