Electronics Technology Program

Mission Statement


The Electronics Technology Program endeavors to train students for entry-level employment in an engineering environment to construct, test, and maintain electronic devices and systems developed by engineers. The program is microprocessor oriented providing for the background necessary to understand and operate robotic and automated equipment.

Instrumentation and Control Technology Associate of Applied Science Degree

The Electronics Technology Program offers an Associate of Applied Science degree in Instrumentation and Control Technology. This is a program of study requiring a suggested minimum of five trimesters to satisfy the requirements of the program. The technical course requirements of 33 credit hours are theory and lab courses in Basic DC Electronics, Basic AC Electronics, Semiconductor Fundamentals, Digital Electronics, Microprocessors, Electromechanical Control Devices, and Electromechanical Control Systems. Students completing the courses are educated in operational theory, maintenance, troubleshooting, and repair of electronic equipment and communication systems.

The technical courses can be transferable to four-year institutions offering a Baccalaureate Degree in Electronics Engineering Technology. The college level General Education courses are transferable to a university for those wishing to pursue advanced degree work.

Goals

  • Students should be prepared for entry-level employment in which they apply the learned theoretical foundations and skills of their discipline to solve practical electronic circuit and system problems by using existing technology knowledgeably, confidently, and effectively.

  • Students should be prepared to transfer to four-year institutions offering a Baccalaureate degree in Electronics Engineering Technology.

Instrumentation and Control Technology Degree Outcomes:
  • Be able to communicate analytical theory and verification effectively in both oral and written form.

  • Be able to use common electronic instrumentation to test and measure electronic circuit functions and phenomenon and to analyze the resulting data.
