Courses for this Certificate

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.

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.

Entry Requirements

Students are required to complete the Placement Process 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 level as determined through the Placement Process. 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

Graduation Requirements

Students must complete all courses in this program with a grade of “C” or better to receive their
certificates. Certain required courses are graded on a pass/no pass basis only. A grade of “P” for
these courses indicates a student earned the equivalent of a “C” or better grade.
