According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (www.bls.gov), the overall job outlook for individuals with an associate's degree in electronics technology is positive. Although growth rates will vary depending on occupational specialties, the employment for the field as a whole is expected to increase by three percent over the 10-year period of 2006-2016. This increase is somewhat slower than the national average for all occupations. Electronic engineering technicians work in various settings, including research, engineering, manufacturing and maintenance. They may use their skills to repair, test and evaluate a wide variety of electronic equipment.
