Electronics Technology

Associate of Applied Science Degree

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 industry.

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 the Electronics Technology Associate of Applied Science are:

  • Identify and solve real-world problems through the application of electronics theory and concepts.
  • Calibrate, test, and repair analog and digital circuitry at component, circuit, and systems level 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.

Advanced Standing

Coursework from accredited colleges and universities will be accepted in accordance with college policies and with 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 RCC Enrollment Services office.

Graduation Requirements

Students are required to complete all courses in this program with a grade of “C” or better to receive their degrees. 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.

This guide lays out an optimal path to graduate. Where zero credits are listed in the prerequisites, students may place into a higher-level(s) based on designated placement score(s). Note, some prerequisites may be required for graduation. Please consult an advisor with any program completion questions.
