Electronics Technology Program Description
What do cellular telephones, wireless computer networks, digital video
systems, medical imaging systems, advanced security systems, automobile
engine/transmission controls, satellite navigation systems, and consumer
electronic systems have in common? They all use sophisticated electronics
and require highly skilled electronic technicians to build, troubleshoot,
and maintain complex communication, control and instrumentation systems.
Students in the Electronic Technology program learn to work with electrical
circuits, analog and digital electronics, microprocessors and microcomputers.
Over half the time scheduled is devoted to hands-on activities in one
of our well-equipped labs. Many of the courses in this program are transferable
to four year colleges and universities. Students wishing to pursue a four
year degree should discuss this with their advisor.
Recommended high school courses include three years of mathematics, including
geometry and two years of algebra. Acceptance into this curriculum is
subject to department approval based upon high school records and math
Previous knowledge of electricity or electronics is not required. Students
