Placement Electronic Systems Technology Featured Videos WelcomeEffective in July 2015 SCC’s Electronic Systems Technology program will be offered on the Lincoln Campus only. SCC's program has been designated an Authorized Training Institute for the International Association for Radio, Telecommunications and Electromagnetics organization. This designation qualifies all EST graduates for iNARTE Certification without further examination. iNARTE is a worldwide, non-profit, professional telecommunications association which certifies qualified engineers and technicians in the fields of Telecommunications, Electromagnetic Compatibility/Interference, Product Safety, Electrostatic Discharge control, and Wireless Systems Installation.You're a Good Fit for this program because . . . OverviewThe world of electronics and information technology is an exciting and challenging profession that allows workers to be creative and challenges them to improve their skills and abilities. SCC’s Electronic Systems Technology program offers three focus areas: Computers, Automation and Networking Systems; Electronic Systems Technician; and Electronic Systems Military. The CANS focus prepares students to become technicians who install, configure and repair industrial control systems, including such devices as programmable logic controllers, robotics and vision systems. EST focus teaches students to install, configure and repair commercial and consumer electronic products such as computer systems, video and audio systems, AM/FM broadcast, two-way radio communication systems, avionics, security systems and telephone systems. The ESM focus is for military personnel who have performed the repair and maintenance of various types of electronic equipment during duty. Using that prior military training as the core for this AAS degree, students can take additional educational requirements to prepare for entry and advanced level employment in a wide array of electronic careers. Day and evening classes are offered.MissionThe mission of the Electronic Systems Technology program is to prepare students to install, configure, analyze, test, maintain, and repair consumer electronics, industrial controls, robotics, security systems, communication systems, computer systems, and networks.Employment OutlookOpportunities for long-term employment, consistent working hours, increasing job responsibilities and great salaries are available to those who enter this ever-changing profession. Technicians are needed in all aspects of the electronic and information technology industry. The electronic industry is constantly changing and expanding into new technologies that require highly skilled technicians to install these systems and keep them going. Graduates report an average starting salary of $34,424 annually.Starting TermsFall Quarter, Winter Quarter.Electronic Systems Technology-AASCurriculumELEC SERVICE GENERAL TECH CORE COURSESTake the following TAKE ALL REQUIRED CORE CLASSES.ELEC-1129 DC ElectronicsELEC-1219 AC ElectronicsELEC-1227 Digital CircuitsELEC-1317 Active DevicesELEC-1362 Electronic DraftingELEC-1422 Analog CircuitsELEC-1432 Power Supply SystemsELEC-1482 Advanced Digital CircuitsELEC-2519 Communications SystemsELEC-2640 Advanced Communications SystemsELEC-2570 System TroubleshootingELEC-2750 Advanced System TroubleshootingELEC-2753 PC Operating Sys/HardwareELEC-2760 Introduction to NetworksELEC-2530 Microprocessor ApplicationsELEC-2735 Advanced Microprocessor ApplicationsACFS-2020 Career DevelopmentELEC-2761 Routing & Switching EssentialsRouting and Switching Essentials (ccna2)ELEC SERVICE MILITARY FOCUS CORE COURSESTake ELEC-2099;ELEC-2099 Military Serv Elect TrainingTake 22.5 credits from "ELEC" courses approved by your advisor.COMP AUTO & NETWORKING FOCUSTAKE ELEC-2755 ELEC-2823 ELEC-2860 ELEC-2861 ELEC-2853 ELEC-2863 ELEC-2883 ELEC-2864;ELEC-2755 Structured Prog for Electronic TechniciaELEC-2823 Network Operating Sys & AdminELEC-2860 Scaling NetworksELEC-2861 Connecting & Securing NetwrksELEC-2853 Fluid Power & RoboticsELEC-2863 Programmable Logic Cont. in Auto.
