The Electronics Technology program emphasizes hands-on learning through experiments and projects that are selected and paced to reinforce the theoretical material. The program offers a low-cost, high-quality education; a comprehensive placement service; laboratories with the latest equipment; and small classes with lots of personal attention.

Although the Electronics Technology program is designed primarily to equip the student with job-entry skills needed by an electronics technician, credits from this program may transfer to baccalaureate-granting schools offering degree programs in technology.

The electronics industry remains an exciting profession.

Students in the College of DuPage Electronics Technology program can earn an Associate in Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree or certificates in various fields of electronics. This practical, hands-on program is complemented with solid foundations and it is updated to meet the needs of industry and the educational needs of the workforce in the 21st century. If you want to feel in control in your workplace, this is the program for you.

    After I attended my first semester, I became interested in learning more about electronics. One of my goals is to begin a new career in the electronics field, and COD is helping me meet all my goals by opening up opportunities with my current employer to work in the electronics department. The Electronics Technology program is challenging and interesting, and COD has incredible, caring staff that assists students every step of the way.

    COD helped me meet my goal by giving me everything I could have asked for in a maintenance certificate and allowing me to learn using expensive machines that otherwise I would have no access to. Where other schools might have sat me in a classroom and gave me a book on robots, COD allowed me to program and troubleshoot a real industry-standard robot.
