School of Applied Technology

Electronics Engineering Technician (KEET)

Certificate of Completion
959 Hours

This program provides a solid foundation for students desiring to enter the electronics engineering technician field. The program covers the basic theory, laws, and circuits, ad fundamentals of AC/DC, solid-state and digital electronics. Students learn how to use various test equipment and the program covers electronic components, how they function, and how to test devices. Introduction modules of troubleshooting techniques, schematic symbols and diagrams are used to enable students to learn the skills required. Students learn the skills required of an electronic engineering technician including microprocessors, embedded controllers, (including software), schematic capture and circuit simulation, and printed circuit board design using software.
