This major is designed to prepare women and men for a wide range of employment opportunities as well as for continued academic study. The curriculum provides advanced-level mathematics and science courses that can be transferred to B.S. programs in electronics and/or computer engineering technology. A core of fundamental courses and laboratory experiences equip students with basic knowledge of electronic circuits and devices, digital/microprocessor systems, computers and networks, and programming/software tools.
Positions, based on interests and abilities, such as: Process Engineering Technician; Test Engineering Technician; Controls Engineering Technician; Application Engineering Technician.
Recommended High School Subjects
Strong preparation in mathematics and science with good communication skills. Must be able to enter pre-calculus in the first semester or take remedial courses before entry. Hands-on skills in electronics are helpful but not necessary.
Special Equipment Needs
Students will be required to have the tools listed on the electronics website.
Students who test at a math placement level one (MTH 004) are not permitted to take Electronics (EET) courses until MTH 004 has been successfully completed. Students who placement test into MTH 006, ENL 001 and RDG (001 or 111) are not permitted to take Electronics courses until remediation has been completed in at least one area. Students testing deficient in English and/or reading are required to remediate these areas during their first semester. Students testing into MTH 005 or MTH 006 will be permitted to take first semester Electronics courses. Students need to be in MTH 180 or above in their second semester; otherwise, students will need instructor permission to continue into a second semester Electronics course.
This major is subject to the transfer standards established by the College (see http://www.pct.edu/catalog/TransferringCredits ). Exceptions must be approved by the school dean.
Program GoalsA graduate of this major should be able to:
- apply principles of circuit design and analysis of analog, digital, microprocessor-based, and networked systems.
- use appropriate interpersonal, verbal, and written communications and information literacy skills to work independently and cooperatively within an organization to promote the goals and objectives of a team, division, or company.
- demonstrate a cooperative and responsible attitude in the workplace that reflects cultural diversity and ethical behavior in modern society.
- utilize information literacy and technology resources in continuous, independent learning throughout his or her career.
