Electronic Technology, AS

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Program, Degree, and Certificate List

The curriculum in Electronic Technology equips students with the skills necessary for coping with a rapidly expanding and changing technological field. A core curriculum seeks to identify and emphasize those principles which are basic to the understanding of current and emerging technologies. In advanced courses, students learn to apply available technology to the solution of specific problems, with an emphasis on creative design and troubleshooting. The curriculum emphasizes a practical rather than an abstract mathematical understanding of electronics, focusing heavily on laboratory study, while still maintaining a level of mathematical rigor appropriate to four-year programs in engineering technology. 

Program Student Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion of this program, students will be able to:

  • Analyze (predict or calculate the behavior or performance of) a specified electronic or electromechanical component, circuit, or system studied.
  • Design (specify all components, values, interconnections and, where applicable, associated firmware or software for) an electronic or electromechanical circuit or system to perform a specified function to given standards.
  • Troubleshoot (locate and identify a faulty component or functional block in) a given non-functioning electronic or electromechanical circuit or system, and indicate the nature of the fault.
  • Properly perform specified tests and measurements on the electronic and electromechanical devices, circuits, and systems studied.
