Program Code: AASER

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.

Program Outcomes/Objectives:

When students complete this program, they will be able to:

  1. Understand specific laws, formulas, and concepts used in alternating current, direct current, and digital circuits.
  2. 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.
  3. Program a microcontroller and build electronic circuits that control electronic devices.

Suggested Course Sequence

Total Credit Hours/Range Total Contact Hours = 62/80+

* Students have the option of taking MTH 112  as a replacement for MTH 110  and MTH 111  . However, due to transfer agreements with W.S.U., L.S.S.U. and F.S.U. into Electrical Engineering Technology (BSEET) programs, students may want to substitute courses for maximum transfer credit (MTH 113  and MTH 114 ). Contact the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math Division at (810) 989-5754 for more details. Students must complete a minimum of 62 credits for degree completion.

** Elective: Recommended electives CIS 120  or any ETA or PHY course, or any additional MTH course. (MTH 113  or higher).
