Applied Electronics & Computer Technology (AECT)


Applied Electronics/Computer Tech

Program Description:

The Applied Electronics and Computer Technology program at Kennebec Valley Community College has expanded its training in network servers to include mobile devices and Apple computer technology. Students are trained to completely setup, configure, and certify computer network installations from the servers to the fiber-optic cable links. The program offers intensive “hands on training” providing students with knowledge, professional certifications, and technical IT skills demanded by local employers.

The newly enhanced Applied Engineering Technology program affords students a direct pathway to earn a Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering Technology at the University of Maine at Orono.

*This program is funded in part by a $13 million grant from the U.S. Department of Labor, Employment and Training Administration. This is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action program, adaptive equipment will be provided upon request to individuals with disabilities.”

“Enrolling in the Applied Electronics and Computer Technology program at KVCC was an incredible experience for me. The instructors taught me to use high-tech electronic equipment and computers in real-world scenarios.”
