Electronics Technician

This module introduces students to Electronics theories while providing hands-on simulation and lab experience.  Classes are structured to enable students to understand and remember complex concepts easily.


Upon completion of the EET program, students can apply for work as electronics technicians, electronics engineering assistant, ICT troubleshooting technicians, functional troubleshooting technicians, equipment maintenance technicians, or field service engineers.



Computer Basics
This course is a detailed presentation of microcomputer hardware and software and the Window operating system and environment. Students learn computer components and terminologies and how to operate the computer and peripherals. Students also learn how to create simple documents using word processing software and how to effectively using the internet and writing email.

Introduction To Profession
Introduces students to EET program structure, history of electronics, electronics technician profession and the electronics industry, basic math review and using scientific calculator, and how to effectively learn and work in the electronic industry.

Electronics Theory I And Circuit Calculation
Builds students’ fundamental knowledge of electric and magnetic fundamental, electric circuits analysis, analog and digital signal processing methods, architecture and functions of electronic circuits and electronic systems. Students also learn electronic components, elementary circuits and analog and digital electronics.

Introduces students to assembly works including electronic component identification and handling, overview of electrics and currents, how to use multimeter, color code alphanumeric code and EIA code reading, Prep and PCB loading technique, THT and SMT soldering and de-soldering technique, wiring and schematic technique.


Electronics Technician Skills
This course solidifies and builds on concepts and technician skills taught in Electronics Theory I and Assembly. It emphasizes on electrical circuits and lab techniques. Students learn how to build circuit with breadboard, assemble and disassemble electronic equipment such as a personal computer, use various electronic testing equipments, circuit simulation technique, system circuit troubleshooting technique, create and interpret schematic drawings, troubleshooting & repair techniques, and write technical reports.

Electronic Math
Concepts and topics of algebra, including functions and operations with algebraic expressions, number systems, truth tables, linear and non-linear, logarithmic equations, ratios and proportions, and Boolean algebra

Electronics Theory II and Labs
Building on Electronics Theory I, students delve into electric and magnetic fundamentals, electric systems, general in electronic circuits, components, elementary circuits, and digital and analog electronics.

Electronics Theory III
This advanced electronics theory course covers general structure of electronic equipment, structure of a computer including Central Processing Unit (CPU), memories, interfaces, and power supply.  Students will also learn (linear and switching), communication
circuits, and step motor control circuit. Students are introduced to computing (include programming), communications, and automation.

Job Search Workshop
This course covers communications skills, effective resume writing, and job hunting techniques. Students are also taught how to improve their interpersonal skills and how to promote and market their skills using effective interviewing techniques.
