  • Biomedical technology — Maintain, troubleshoot and repair the electronic components of medical equipment.
  • Electronics technology — Assist engineers and senior technicians in the research, development, manufacturing, testing, installation or maintenance of a variety of products including the design and production of circuit boards.
  • Electrical technology – Train to work on electric power distribution systems, industrial power systems and subsystems as well as in the manufacturing control (robotics) industries. Or assist the developers of wind, solar and traditional energy systems.

Electrical and Electronics Engineering technicians assist engineers in the design and development of

  • computers
  • communications equipment
  • robotic manufacturing equipment
  • medical devices
  • navigational equipment
  • power distribution systems
  • other electrical/electronic equipment

Graduates of this program often work in product evaluation and testing, using measuring and diagnostic devices to adjust, test and repair equipment.

State-of-the-art lab:We invite you to come see our facilities, the largest, most extensive set of industrial machinery and electronic test equipment of any school in the state. At STLCC you learn on the equipment used in the industry.

Small class size and a focus on hands-on activity.

Faculty: STLCC is a longtime leader in the field of engineering technology, and you’ll learn from seasoned professionals. All of our instructors worked in the industry and bring that experience to the classroom.

Stackable: If you’ve earned a certificate of specialization in Biomedical Electronics Technology some of your credits can apply towards your Electrical/Electronic Engineering Technology AAS degree.

Convenience: More than 90% of our students attend classes part-time while working during the day, so technical courses are offered in the evening.

More than one million students have attended STLCC. It’s the largest institute of higher education in the region and the second largest in Missouri.

To find out if STLCC is right for you, we invite you to visit. You can meet with one of our faculty members, tour the campus, and get answers to any questions you might have. CLICK HERE
