About the Program

The High Technology Studies four-term certificate program is designed to expand technical knowledge
across a range of technical career areas. Students may specialize in a number of technology
areas such as welding, manufacturing, machining, computer aided drafting, electronics, and computer
science by selecting the appropriate technical electives.

The U.S. Department of Education requires disclosure of specific information about career and
technical certificate programs to prospective students. Data includes Standard Occupational
Classification (SOC) codes, graduation rates, tuition and fees, typical costs for books and supplies,
job placement rates for students completing the programs, and median loan debt incurred by students
completing the programs. For more information visit

The curriculum in RCC courses is derived from a set of identified learning outcomes that are relevant
to the discipline. For a list of learning outcomes for this discipline or program, see

Entry Requirements

Students are required to take a placement test to determine skill level and readiness in math, reading, and writing. As part of their training program, students must begin with the courses within their skill levels as determined by placement test scores. Students are required to complete any prerequisites listed. In addition, students may also be required to enroll in classes that would increase their employability and success.

Advanced Standing

Coursework from accredited colleges and universities will be accepted in accordance with college
policies and the Electronics Technology Department chair’s recommendation. In order to ensure
that coursework is current, program courses over three years old must be reviewed and approved
by the appropriate department chair before being accepted toward core requirements. Official
transcripts must be filed with the Enrollment Services Office and the Electronics Technology
