The electronics systems technology option is designed to provide students with both theoretical knowledge and practical skills in electronics systems that are essential in the 21st century. Course included in this option provide experiences in devices and circuits, digital logic. Typical entry-level professions include control systems designers, control/field technologists, and electronics technologists. Upon the completion of the electronics systems option, students will be able to:
- Use a variety of electronic test equipment such as analog/digital meters, oscilloscopes, counters, power supplies, logic analyzers and probes and others.
- Demonstrate knowledge related to AC/DC, digital circuits, power conversion and control, and microprocessor circuits.
- Design, create, and integrate programmed solutions via PLC and PC for problems associated with process control
- Utilize electromechanical and microprocessor-based systems in order to implement designed solutions associated with process control
- Retrieve and assess electronics and control information from journals, periodicals, technical manuals, component substitution manuals, Internet, and other technical sources.
- Describe the impact of various electronic and control systems on society today.
- Demonstrate the systematic research and development process in learning and applying current contemporary electronics and control systems technologies
- Understanding the basic principles of flight, the flight environment, meteorology, basic navigation, aviation physiology, radio navigation systems and the nature of space.
