Electronics Technician with Engineering - Electrical Option I Transfer


Return to All Programs of Study by Division and Degree Type Return to: All Programs of Study by Division and Degree Type

This program is designed to give students technical skills and hands-on experience with electronics, circuits, and programmable controllers.  Further, it provides freshman and sophomore level classes to prepare students who wish to transfer to a program in electrical engineering.  Upon completion of this program, students will:

  • Analyze, configure, troubleshoot, and assist in designing and measuring electrical and electronic circuits and systems;
  • Read and describe the characteristics of basic circuitry and compute circuit capacity;
  • Program and troubleshoot PLC systems for basic system control; and
  • Describe how various industrial processes are coalesced using advanced PLC techniques.

The Associate of Science (AS) degree requires 60 credits at FVCC, and the Bachelor of Science (BS) degree at Montana University System (MUS) colleges and universities requires 120 credits. FVCC students may earn as many as 75-85 credits in preparation for some transfer majors, thus reducing the number of credits required for the BS degree at MUS schools. Also, by earning the AS degree from FVCC, students will have satisfied the lower division General Education Core (see General Education Requirements for requirements) for all MUS institutions and will not be required to meet additional lower division general education core requirements upon transfer. The suggested course load in AS programs is rigorous and is recommended for only the most prepared students. A more moderate semester credit load can be achieved by taking general education core courses during summer terms or completing one or two additional semesters at FVCC before transfer.

The information on all transfer programs is subject to change. Students should see their advisor to explore other possibilities not specifically listed in the program.
