The Electronic Technology Fundamentals Skills Certificate 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.
Upon successful completion of this program, the student will be able to:
- Perform measurements of voltage, current and resistance using laboratory test equipment;
- Apply the principles of Direct and Alternating Current theory to electronic circuits;
- Apply the Scientific Method to the investigation and evaluation of electronic circuits, and summarize the results in written technical format;
- Analyze and test solid state devices and circuits;
- Identify, analyze, and test Operational Amplifier circuits; and
- Test, align, and troubleshoot various complex electronic circuits.
