technical and general studies courses. Advanced courses include radio frequency and microwave
communications, PC hardware, and microcontrollers and interfacing. Typical occupations include
those of electronics test technicians at manufacturing sites or field engineers in the communications

The technical courses involve extensive lab work using industry standard test equipment and practices.
As a capstone, students design and build an electronics project to demonstrate their proficiencies
