What will I learn?

Become an electronics technician and work on highly technical systems, equipment and circuitry. Your hands-on training will teach you how to fabricate, install, operate and troubleshoot machines and equipment such as:

  • computers
  • detection, control and communications systems
  • robotics
  • light sensors
  • appliances
  • lasers

To get a broad foundation in electronics, you will take 64 credit hours in courses as varied as robotics, lasers, microprocessors, semiconductors, and computer networking and hardware. A programming and math background with good algebra skills is recommended.


As a JCCC Electronics student, you will

  • Gain a broad systems view of electronics.
  • Focus on the principles of electronic devices, circuit analysis and digital electronics.
  • Work on the latest equipment in the lab.
  • Benefit from experienced faculty, small classes, and day and evening classes.
  • Take up to three electives about lasers (a specialty in big demand across the country), computers or other technical specialties.

Your courses also prepare you for the International Society of Certified Electronics Technicians (ISCET) certification exam, which is not required to be a technician but can give you an advantage over other job candidates.

After graduating from JCCC with an Associate of Applied Science degree, you may elect to continue your education at the University of Kansas in its electrical engineering program or get a bachelor’s degree in technology management from Pittsburg State or Kansas State University.
