Electronics Program Overview

  • The Electronics program provides a sound foundation in DC and AC theory, and the effects that both passive and active components have on circuit operations. Students study analog and digital circuitry, and laboratory work makes up fifty percent of the student's time.

    The related class integrates shop practices, procedure, and methods along with English, math, and science by introducing new terminology and vocabulary. Mathematical concepts are introduced in a logical manner, as they relate to their area of study, and many principles of science are incorporated. Integration in these areas of study not only provide an occupationally skilled graduate with vocational and academic competency, but a more confident graduate, better able to reach their own full potential in this highly technical career field. An emphasis is placed on industrial and digital electronics as well as on computers. In the junior and senior years, national certifications are available to students who demonstrate proficiency in specific electronics areas.

    Graduates are actively employed in areas of industrial electronics, computers, research and development, electronics equipment manufacturing, marine navigational computers, electronics control, and measuring equipment.

    Students must have good mathematical and mechanical aptitude and normal color perception.
