Electronics Certificate (ELEC)
*This is an overview of the program. The course sequencing is meant to serve as a guideline for your semester planning. Please note that the scheduling of courses, program sequencing and curriculum are subject to change.*
Graduates may be employed as electronics technicians. The program below is recommended; however, other courses may be substituted with the approval of the electronics faculty.
Upon successful completion of this program, graduates will be able to:
- connect components into basic electrical circuits and use multimeters to verify circuit operation.
- determine how the differentconfigurations of capacitance, inductance, and resistance affect theinstantaneous voltages and resultant instantaneous currents.
- connect digital circuits common tocomputers such as logic gates, flip flops, counters and arithmeticcircuits into functioning circuits.
- use the instruction set to write assembly language programs to control the operation of the microprocessor.
- construct and experimentally verifythe operation of standard electronic circuits such as power supplies,amplifiers, and oscillators.
- demonstrate effective communication skills by writing technical reports based on their laboratory experiences.
- demonstrate critical thinking/problemsolving abilities by analyzing a non-functioning electrical circuit,determining the problem and restoring circuit operation.
- demonstrate interpersonal relations, teamwork and work ethics through group laboratory projects.
- demonstrate an ability to use/apply mathematical quantitative reasoning to design basic functional electronic circuits.
- demonstrate an ability to use and work with computers by writing laboratory reports using a word processing package.
- demonstrate use of computer software packages by simulating circuit operations and obtaining valid circuit parameters.
