The Electronic & Computer Engineering Technology (ECET) program leading to an Associate in Science degree provides students with the skills and knowledge required for entry level employment within the high-technology industry as electronic /electro-optic technicians, renewable energy technicians, telecom technicians, and network system administrators. Students learn fundamental engineering concepts, computer programming, mathematics, and physics relevant to a wide variety of industries on Maui. Training, equipment, and supplies are provided for 3-D printing and circuit board fabrication. Software applications for circuit simulation, CAD, finite element analysis, and microprocessor control are utilized. The program requires written and verbal proficiencies and emphasizes laboratory competencies. Internship and job placement opportunities in a variety of engineering technology positions are provided. The ECET program also includes a Certificate of Competence (CO) in Cybersecurity.
The ECET program offers different levels of educational opportunity:
- Certificate of Competence for coursework in electronics and computer fundamentals.
- Certificate of Competence in Cybersecurity.
- Certificate of Achievement with electronics, math, physics, and computer basics.
- Associate in Science degree in Electronic and Computer Engineering Technology, including electro-optics instrumentation, adaptive optics for astronomical applications, detectors, robotics, and computer hardware. The scheduling is designed for a cohort of students to complete the AS degree program in four semesters.
- Lower division pathway to the Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS) in Engineering Technology (ENGT). Courses that are prerequisites to the BAS require a grade C or better.
