    Electronics & Engineering Technology
    The curious student who enjoys taking things apart just to see how they work will surely excel in Electronics & Engineering Technology. Students receive training in a well-equipped, modern electronic laboratory while studying a broad spectrum of electronic and engineering theory and application of basic electronics, communications, digital circuits, and computer systems. From iPads® and cell phones to personal computers, students learn to master the high-demand skills needed to build the electronic circuits that drive these devices. Developing an innovative approach to design and working with the end-user in mind are the keys to success in this highly technical field.

    Hands-on Projects
    Digital Clock: “How does it work?” is a common question our students ask themselves as they take things apart and put them back together to satisfy their curiosity. Our Electronics students combine their inquisitiveness with logic and theory to create an LED digital clock. The clock design is etched into several circuit boards that incorporate transistors, resistors, and capacitors. They power the clock by building a microcontroller and soldering its connections. Once the electronic components are complete, students program their clock with the date and time.

    5-Volt Amplifier: It’s known that high school students enjoy listening to music loudly out loud, in their headphones, or in the car, so our electronics students create a battery-powered general purpose 5-volt amplifier to intensify sound. They design a schematic of the etch board design based on their creativity and desired output. After building the circuits and adding power, students test their amplifier for sound levels and feedback. A custom-designed case encapsulates the unit and gives students a space to flex their creativity.
