College Selection Criteria
Because of the number of specializations and fields offered by electronics schools, students usually first narrow down their college options by the field of study. Consider the following when looking for electronics schools:
- Depending on a student's career goals, one should consider a program in electronic fields like engineering, technology, applied sciences, or vocational studies.
- While some fields in electronics are more academic and classroom-based, others offer more hands-on opportunities.
- Students earning a bachelor's degree, especially in an engineering field, often are qualified for more advanced positions.
- Students looking to go straight into the workforce may consider an associate's degree which can qualify one for licensure.
Degrees related to electronics can be earned from many universities around the country. Advancement can be aided by earning higher degrees, which are offered from most 4-year colleges.
