Electronics Technology - A.A.S. Degree (Career)

Electronics technology programs at HCC
As our electronics infrastructure advances, so does the demand for a workforce skilled in the basics of electronics technology.

HCC's Electronics Technology curriculum provides a strong theoretical and practical foundation in the core concepts of electronic circuitry, components, and systems that underlie all modern electronics, from consumer equipment repair to industrial process control to telecommunications to microelectronics to tomorrow's innovation. HCC offers both an associate career degree and a certificate program for job or skill enhancement.

All aspects of modern society and business are dependent on skilled professionals to maintain the electronics infrastructure. Graduates can choose to work in challenging positions in the fields of computers, telecommunications, training, and higher studies. Courses will emphasize theory and practice.

Coursework will reflect the changing needs of industry and inculcate a need for ongoing training. Students planning to transfer to a four‑year technical institution should contact that institution to check transferable courses. This curriculum prepares students to sit for the A+ certification exam and Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) certification exam.

As a graduate, you should be able to:

  1. Describe the fundamental operating principles and components in electronic technology including computers (hardware and software), computer networks, and analog and digital circuits.
  2. Analyze electronic systems, using appropriate testing methods and instrumentation, for the purpose of troubleshooting, maintenance, and/or repair.
  3. Identify current industry standards and protocols, and apply them for the installation and configuration of electronic systems.
  4. Identify, understand, evaluate, and apply ethical reasoning.
