Electronics technology influences almost every aspect of modern life. Skilled electronics technicians are needed to support growth in this industry. These technicians must be able to fabricate, test, install, operate and maintain highly technical systems such as communications systems, computers and computer networks, and industrial process control systems. The program focuses on the underlying principles of electronic devices, circuit analysis and digital electronics and will provide a broad systems view of electronics.
Students in the electronics program will work with outstanding facilities and the latest laboratory equipment. Graduates of the program will have the opportunity for employment in one of today’s most challenging and exciting career fields.
Program graduates also have the opportunity to pursue a baccalaureate degree (B.S.E.E.T.) in electronics engineering technology through the transfer of JCCC electronics technology and other courses to participating four-year institutions. Students contemplating this option should seek early counseling and prepare a program plan with specific course selections in anticipation of four-year institution requirements. Students should be prepared to enroll in higher-level math and physics courses when compared with current electronics technology program requirements.
Students who are transferring to JCCC with significant numbers of electronic technology credits should be aware that at least 9 credit hours of approved electronic technology courses must be completed at JCCC before the A.A.S. degree will be awarded. In addition, because of changes in technology, students who desire to graduate using electronics technology courses completed more than seven years ago should seek counseling regarding the current relevance of those courses.
