The Electronics Technology curriculum provides upgrading of skills for those presently in the electronics and computer related fields or provides basic skills for those who want to enter these fields. The certificate is based on the skills required of an electronics technician including soldering, application of electronic measuring equipment (e.g., oscilloscope and multimeter), electronic circuit simulation software, DC/AC circuit principles, computer aided design software, analog devices, and digital devices. In addition, the students will learn basic troubleshooting skills applied to electronic systems. Students are encouraged to pursue Certified Electronics Technician certification upon completion of this program. High school graduate reading and writing skills are expected, as development of technical reports and use of technical manuals are required in these courses. Math skills should include practical knowledge of algebra, basic trigonometry and geometry.

Credits earned may be applied toward the Engineering Technology/Electrical Engineering Concentration, A.A.S.  degree.

Courses in each level (Foundation and Core) must be completed prior to advancing to the next level. Where more than one course is offered within a level, courses may be taken in any sequence.
