Associate of Applied Science Degree
Courses for this Program

About the Program

The Electronics Technology Associate of Applied Science degree provides students the necessary
skills for entry into one of today’s most dynamic and broad-based technical fields. The program
emphasizes electronic theory fundamentals, troubleshooting and design, and involves both highly
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
of program outcomes. The AAS degree can be used for technical block transfers to four-year
institutions’ basic engineering programs, although continuing students will be advised to take
additional transfer courses.

Program Learning Outcomes

The curriculum in RCC courses is derived from a set of identified learning outcomes that are relevant to the discipline. Program learning outcomes for electronics technology programs are:

Identify and solve real-world problems through the application of electronics theory and concepts.

Calibrate, test, and repair analog and digital circuitry using industry standard test equipment.

Organize, interpret, and use technical information and documentation.

Communicate effectively across a variety of audiences: technicians, engineers, management and customers.

Function collaboratively as a member of a team to achieve specified and measurable results.

Demonstrate flexibility, adaptability, and time management skills commensurate with industry productivity needs.

Demonstrate the ability to adhere to personal and industry safety standards.

Demonstrate life-long learning towards professional growth.
