Program Mission

The mission of the Industrial Electronics Technology program is to provide individuals with the education and training needed to attain employment in the field of electronics with the potential for career advancement. The technical diploma is awarded upon completion of forty-five (45) credit hours of technical coursework in the area of electronics technology as evidenced by the program curriculum. An associate of applied science degree in industrial electronics technology can be achieved by combining the technical diploma courses with fifteen (15) credit hours of general education coursework. Only the general education component of the associate degree in Industrial Electronics Technology is transferrable to statewide four-year degree programs at this time.

Program Goals

  • Students will understand basic electronic principles and concepts.
  • Students will utilize industry-standard test and measurement equipment to analyze electronic circuits.

Program Learning Outcomes

Students completing the Industrial Electronics Technology program will be able to do the following:

  • Apply Ohm’s Law to analyze basic electronic circuits.
  • Perform measurements to basic electronic circuits using a Volt-Ohm meter.
  • Perform voltage and time measurements on electronic circuits using an oscilloscope.
  • Demonstrate a professional work ethic.
