Electronics and Electrical Engineering

The world's economic growth and technological advances over the past quarter century have created a demand for individuals with technology focused associate degrees, according to a report by the U.S. Department of Labor.

"The need for graduates of an engineering technology program should grow as technology becomes more sophisticated," the report stated. "Employers are expected to continue to look for technicians skilled in new technology who require a minimum of additional job training."
