ASSOCIATE IN APPLIED ARTS AND SCIENCE DEGREE
One of the most rapidly expanding areas in modern industry is the field of electronics. There is an ever-increasing demand by industry for trained electronics technicians to assist in the development, maintenance, testing, and repair of modern electronic equipment. This course work provides the technical knowledge and skills necessary for entry-level employment in industry as technicians in electronics layout, instrumentation, design, lab work, field service, or as an engineering aide. Technicians may also install microcomputers, maintain communications equipment, write technical reports, or work in sales and service of instrumentation equipment.
When students complete this program, they will be able to:
- understand specific laws, formulas, and concepts used in alternating current, direct current, and digital circuits,
- design, construct, and analyze electronic circuits, containing linear variable differential transformers, “LVDT”, triacs and silicon controlled rectifiers, “SCR” used in both alternating current and direct current electronic devices,
- program a microcontroller and build electronic circuits that control electronic devices.
