Upon completion of the program students will be able to:

  • Select and operate electronic test equipment during troubleshooting and repair operations, with an emphasis on safety in use and accuracy in results.
  • Perform schematic entry, PCB layout, and circuit prototyping to design and manufacture an electronic product from conception to completion.
  • Rework and repair circuit boards with through-hole and SMD parts including SOD, SOIC, SOT23, high pin count microprocessors, and passive components down to 0402 size.
  • Effectively communicate with and advise customers and co-workers, both written and orally, regarding the progress of and decisions made concerning test and repair procedures.
