The catalog lists courses and requirements for all of the following associate degrees and certificates. Please note that electronics-related awards fall under several different program names at the colleges of DCCCD.
Eastfield College • Richland College
• Electrical Engineering Technology A.A.S. This new degree was designed in collaboration with Texas Instruments, using target competencies identified by the TI Engineering Council to create a job pathway for well-trained semiconductor manufacturing technicians. Its creation was funded by TI and the DCCCD, as well as a federal grant to Richland College to support the Veterans-Focused Engineering Technology Project for local veterans to enter or re-enter the job market. This degree can be completed in two years by a full-time student.
Biomedical Equipment Technology (BMET) Program for Veterans
Qualified North Texas veterans have the opportunity to train for one of the hottest job growth areas in health care: biomedical equipment maintenance. The Biomedical Technology (BMET) program provides an intensive five-month curriculum that teaches installation and repair of sophisticated biomedical equipment such as CT scanners, ultrasound machines and EKG machines, all critical for patient treatment and care. This innovative program is a result of a partnership between DCCCD and the Gen. Richard B. Myers Veterans Biomedical Equipment Technology Program, and is a part of MediSend International, a Dallas-based nonprofit humanitarian organization.
Program participants must be post-9/11 veterans who are good at math and algebra, have electronic and technical skills and are able to attend classes daily from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at MediSend's Biomedical Technology School.
Successful completers earn a BMET certification and may continue their education to an accelerated associate degree at Eastfield or Richland colleges. Visit www.dcccd.edu/bmet for more information or call 214-575-5006, ext. 112.
