Electrical Technology:Electronics A.A.S.

Description:



The Electronics Technology program prepares students to work in a variety of settings in the electronics industry. Electronics students learn about the fabrication, testing, maintenance, and repair of electronics equipment. Students take courses in DC and AC Circuits, Computer Programming, Digital and Analog Electronics, Microcontrollers, Operational Amplifiers, Industrial Electricity, and Networking. After completion of this degree, students have the options of going to work in the electronics field or transferring to one of several colleges in New York State offering Bachelor’s Degrees in Electrical Engineering Technology.


Program Mission:

The mission of the Electrical Technology: Electronics AAS degree program is to prepare students for employment in various electronics manufacturing or repair related areas and/or for the pursuit of advanced degrees in electrical engineering technology by educating them in the fundamental concepts, knowledge, and practices in electrical analog and digital circuits and associated test equipment.


Program Goals:

The program will:

  • prepare students to demonstrate knowledge of the fundamentals of electrical circuits.
  • prepare students to demonstrate knowledge of the fundamentals of analog and digital electronics.
  • prepare students to demonstrate knowledge of electronic programming languages.
  • prepare students to demonstrate knowledge and proper use of electrical test equipment.
  • prepare students for work as entry-level electronics technicians or further study within the field at requisite institutions of higher learning.
  • prepare students to communicate effectively, both orally and in writing, as well as interact effectively within the work environment.
  • prepare students to solve mathematical problems typically encountered in the electronics industry.
