The first year of this program begins with the preparation of students for a career as a technician in a range of digital electronic fields. Students may specialize in computer programming, robotics, basic analog and digital electronics, microprocessor and sensor technology, basic fiber optics communications, computer construction, computer software and hardware troubleshooting and repair on a modular level, local area network technology, and Internet client and server technology.
Working in our modern laboratory with state-of-the art equipment, students gain theoretical and hands-on experience with advanced computer, test equipment, electronic components, and diagnostic tools and procedures. During the course students build robotic machines, write programs, construct electronic circuits, assemble and test a working computer, design and construct a working network, maintain an Internet server, and build a functional fiber optics communications system.
Second-year students can focus on one or more of the areas covered during the first year. Related career possibilities include computer consultant/repair, programmer, electronics technician, and fiber optics technician.
