Electronic & Computer Technology


Electronics and computers are a part of nearly everything that touches everyone’s life. From airplane control towers and medical imaging machines to the grocery store checkout, cell phones, game consoles and everything in between. There is a need for trained professionals to design, maintain and repair those computer systems and electronic devices. Students will enter a high-tech, hands-on world where they will learn about electronic components, circuits, computer-aided design, computer and network systems and robotics.
