Electronic technicians are employed by industrial firms in the design, development and service of electronic products. The main emphasis of this program is to analyze, design and troubleshoot electronic circuitry. Starting with a strong foundation in basic electronics, it continues into a comprehensive, in-depth preparation for a wide variety of job opportunities.

This broad base gives graduates flexibility in the type of employment they choose. This program includes digital electronics, microprocessors, computer repair, computer networks, radio and video systems, automated systems, robotics, programmable logic controller and associated sensors and security systems. A systematic approach to trouble analysis is an important trait for success in the field.

Students are encouraged to pursue nationally recognized certifications including Cisco's CCNA certification, the Computing Technology Industry Association A+ certification, Certified Electronics Technician, and IPC certification.

Both electronics programs require the same core courses for the first two semesters. Students choose between Electronics Technicians and Wireless Communications near the end of the second semester.
