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.

Program Student Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion of this program, the student will be able to:

  1. Perform measurements of voltage, current and resistance using laboratory test equipment;
  2. apply the principles of Direct and Alternating Current theory to electronic circuits;
  3. apply the Scientific Method to the investigation and evaluation of electronic circuits, and summarize the results in written technical format;
  4. analyze and test solid state devices and circuits;
  5. identify, analyze, and test Operational Amplifier circuits; and
  6. test, align, and troubleshoot various complex electronic circuits.

Course Prerequisites and Advisories:

Courses in a program of study may have prerequisites or advisories; that is, courses that must or should be completed before taking that course. Please check for prerequisites or advisories by clicking on the course numbers in the Program Requirements section.

It is important that students who are completing an Associate Degree and desire to transfer to a four-year institution meet with a counselor to plan their lower division coursework. While many majors at SRJC are intended to align with lower division major preparation required by California public universities, specific lower-division major requirements vary among individual campuses. See a counselor, visit the Transfer Center, and check Guides For Transfer in Specific Majors, and ASSIST to review transfer preparation guides for specific schools and majors.


This major/certificate is undergoing revisions. Please consult a counselor or program coordinator.
