Spring Semester 2019 Catalog

Electronics Technology, Diploma

Overview

Offered at the Augusta campus

Entrance Dates: Every Semester
Length of Program: Five Terms
Credit Hours Required for Graduation: Industrial 54
Credit Hours Required for Graduation: Telecommunications 56

Program Description: The Electronics Technology program is a sequence of courses designed to prepare students for careers in electronics technology professions. Learning opportunities develop academic, technical, and professional knowledge and skills required for job acquisition, retention, and advancement. Program graduates are to be competent in the general areas of communications, mathematics, computer literacy, and interpersonal relations. The program emphasizes a combination of electronics technology theory and practical application necessary for successful employment using both manual and computerized electronics systems. Program graduates receive an Electronics Technology Diploma, which qualifies them as electronics technicians with a specialization in biomedical instrumentation, communications electronics, computer electronics, general electronics, industrial electronics, or telecommunications electronics. After completing the Electronics Technology Diploma program, students who desire to obtain an associate degree may enroll in the Associate of Applied Science in Industrial Technology program, and complete the requirements for an associate degree with the addition of 30 credit hours. High school graduation or GED is required for admission to this program.

Employment Opportunities: The U.S. Department of Labor and other groups predict a growing need for computer systems servicing and troubleshooting technicians. Graduates may seek employment with telecommunications, manufacturing, and communications companies, and other industrial and commercial electronic sales and service outlets. With minimal systems training, the graduate is expected to perform proficiently in industrial organizations or computer networking facilities.
