Classroom and laboratory experiences will allow students to begin their career preparation in the fundamental electronics concepts of Jobsite Skills, DC Basics, AC Basics, and Personal Computer Design, and will incorporate safety, technical writing, mathematical concepts, and customer service.
Electronics and Computer Technology II provides the opportunity for students to continue with foundational electronic concepts including circuit analysis and digital electronics modules. After completing the two additional foundational modules, student may choose to focus on one of the optional modules that can include more intense instruction, research, specialized projects, and internships. The optional modules include industrial technology, emerging electronic technologies, residential and commercial electronic communication, and automation. The content of this class is designed to provide the State of Indiana with a trained workforce in emerging technologies career pathways that will make a significant contribution to the Indiana economy. Industry certifications and additional post-secondary education are critical components of this pathway. Classroom, laboratory, and work-based experiences in the fundamental electronics concepts of circuit analysis and digital electronics as well as one of the optional modules will incorporate safety, technical writing, mathematics, and customer service.
