Electronics Technology is a course that includes classroom and laboratory experiences in wiring and schematic diagrams used to design, install, and repair electrical/electronic equipment such as wireless communication devices, programmable controllers, consumer electronic products, amplifiers, computers, and related equipment. Course content will include basic theories of electricity, electronics, digital technology, and basic circuit analysis. Activities include experiences in: soldering; use of an oscilloscope, meters, signal generators and tracers; bread-boarding; circuit simulation software; and troubleshooting. Understanding and using the underlying scientific principles related to electricity, electronics, circuits, sine waves, and OhmÕs Law are integral to this course. Students will use mathematical principles to solve electronic problems and to troubleshoot electrical circuits. Emphasis will be placed on the ability to read, comprehend, and use information found in technical manuals.
Career and Technical Student Organization:
(Skills USA) Students can participate in community service projects and various skill competitions through Skills USA. Through these activities students develop leadership and organizational skills, team building, interpersonal communications, and enhanced technical skills.
