Associate Degree Requirements:
The major is one of several requirements students need to fulfill in order to be awarded the Associate Degree, the highest level of academic achievement recognized by Santa Rosa Junior College. Please note that all of the following requirements must be met in order for the degree to be conferred:
For all students admitted for the Fall 2009 term or any term thereafter,
a grade of "C" or better, or "P" if the course is taken on a pass/no pass basis,
is required for each course applied toward the major.
This major/certificate is undergoing revisions. Please consult a counselor or program coordinator.
The Electronic Technology major offers students the basic foundation to perform the work of an electronic technician in both traditional engineering environments and service related environments.
Electronic technicians lay out, build, test and modify electronic components, equipment, and systems such as computers, test equipment, and machine tool numerical controls, using principles of electronics, electrical circuitry, engineering, mathematics, and physics. An electronic technician often works under the direction of engineering staff. Non-traditional areas include such things as biomedical instrument repairs, alternative energy installation and repair, field service, and installations.
Our courses prepare students to succeed in applying the fundamental principles and practices of electronic technology to a variety of job settings.
