Metropolitan Technical Community College offers two programs in electronics technology. As stated in the 1979-80 Metro Tech catalog, the One-Year Certificate Option in Electronics Technology provides an introduction to all types of electrical and electronics work and enables graduates to enter company training programs or to become assistants to certified technicians. While preparing students for employment in the electronics communications field, the Two-Year Associate Degree Option in Electronics Technology also is designed to provide a comprehensive knowledge of electronics which may be applied to many other employment requirements.

The purpose of this study is to identify the Omaha-area employer and training needs for technicians in an occupational area designated as "electromechanical electronics." This area of specialization within the electronics field has been divided into two employment categories: 1) bio-medical electronics and 2) industrial electronics.
