What will I learn about Electronics Technology at JCCC?

At JCCC, you will prepare for a career as an electronics technician. You will gain experience working on highly technical systems, equipment, and circuitry. Your hands-on training will teach you how to install, operate, and troubleshoot equipment. Students learn about technologies, including computers, robotics, light sensors, lasers, and control systems.

Our program begins with students taking an introduction to electronics course. The initial course covers electronics theory and principles and allows students to learn the uses of basic equipment. JCCC’s Electronics Technology courses incorporate labs so that students learn how to apply their knowledge in the real world.

At JCCC, you will:

  • Gain a broad view of electronics systems
  • Focus on the principles of electronic devices, circuit analysis, and digital electronics
  • Work on the latest equipment in the lab
  • Take up to three electives about lasers, computers, or other specialties

To get a broad foundation in electronics, students take courses like robotics, lasers, and computer networking and hardware. A programming and math background with exemplary algebra skills is recommended.

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

Why JCCC for Electronics Technology?

Students will find that there are many advantages to pursuing their education at JCCC. Electronics Technology courses are taught by experienced faculty in small classes for more individualized instruction. Students can also choose from day and evening classes to fit their busy schedules.

JCCC’s Electronics Technology program offers two routes: a certificate or an associate degree.

  • Electronics Technology Certificate: In JCCC’s program, students will take a range of courses over a year. Students can take up to 33 credit hours. After these credits are complete, students will earn a certificate. This certificate is useful when students enter the workforce or apply for an associate degree.
  • Associate of Applied Science in Electronics Technology: The associate degree program will dive deeper into topics on circuits, systems, and more. After completing 64 hours of coursework, students will graduate with an electronics technology degree.

After graduating from JCCC with an Associate of Applied Science degree, you can build on your degree at a nearby university. The University of Kansas offers an electrical engineering program. Pittsburg State and Kansas State University offer bachelor's degrees in technology management.
