Applied Electronics

Applied Electronics Program


The Applied Electronics Major is structured to provide a student with an application-oriented, electronic/electrical background, extensive hands-on laboratory experience, and the use of standard and specialized test equipment. 

The relevant knowledge, the skills that industry needs today, and the competencies that are integrated into the curriculum are intended to prepare the graduate to be job-ready in the high-tech workplace at the end of two years, and enter into a rewarding career in one of the electronics fields.

The Applied Electronics major is approved by the Federal Aviation Administration as a part of the College Training Initiative, through which students are eligible for part-time (work-study) employment with the FAA or full-time employment after graduation.  LCCC has the only FAA approved program in Ohio.

 

Applied Electronics Program Educational Objectives


The Program Educational Objectives (PEOs) support the missions of both the college and the division. Graduates of the Applied Electronics program major are expected to attain the following program educational objectives within a few years after graduation. The PEOs for the Applied Electronics Program are as follows:

  1. Function effectively in the electronics technology field by applying relevant technical knowledge and technical skills in: basic electricity and electronics; problem solving and troubleshooting of analog, digital and computer related electrical/electronic circuits; understanding of standard test equipment and experimental practice for electronic circuits.
        
  2. Demonstrate a high standard of professional ethics, attitudes, and values.
        
  3. Communicate effectively and work collaboratively in teams.
        
  4. Be prepared to pursue higher education and recognize the importance of lifelong learning.

Applied Electronics Student Outcomes

The eleven student outcomes for the Applied Electronics Program at Lorain County Community College are listed below. These eleven student outcomes describe what students are expected to know or be able to do by the time of graduation from our program. These relate to the skills, knowledge, and behaviors that students attain as they progress through the program.

At graduation, Applied Electronics students must demonstrate: 

  1. an ability to apply the knowledge, techniques, skills, and modern tools in the electronics field to include analog, digital and computer related electrical/electronic circuits.
        
  2. an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to engineering technology problems that require limited application of principles but extensive practical knowledge in analog, digital and computer related electrical/electronic circuits.
        
  3. an ability to conduct standard tests and measurements, and to conduct, analyze, and interpret experiments.
       
  4. an ability to function effectively as a member of a technical team.
        
  5. an ability to identify, analyze, and solve problems in the analog, digital and computer related electrical/electronic circuits.
        
  6. an ability to apply written, oral, and graphical communication in both technical and non-technical environments; and an ability to identify and use appropriate technical literature;
        
  7. an understanding of the need for and an ability to engage in self-directed continuing professional development;
        
  8. an understanding of and a commitment to address professional and ethical responsibilities, including a respect for diversity;
        
  9. a commitment to quality, timeliness, and continuous improvement;
        
  10. the application of circuit analysis and design, computer programming, associated software, analog and digital electronics, and microcomputers, and engineering standards to the building, testing, operation, and maintenance of electrical/electronic(s) systems;
        
  11. the applications of physics or chemistry to electrical/electronic(s) circuits in a rigorous mathematical environment at or above the level of algebra and trigonometry. 
     

Program Enrollment and Degree Data
Electronic Engineering Technology - Applied Electronics Major

     

Academic Year      Associate Degrees Awarded 
 2012-2013  10

 Annual program enrollment data is not gathered for the following reasons:

  1. The Applied Electronics (ELCT) program is not a locked step program. Students can enter the program from multiple first year courses provided that they have been assessed for Mathematics and English, and meet the course pre-requisites. Students progress in the ELCT program at their own pace, either part time or full time to complete the program course requirements. Once all requirements are completed, students graduate.
  2. Students are not required to declare full-time or part-time status.
  3. Multiple courses serve as service courses to other departments within the Engineering Technologies Division and across the college.
  4. The same student can be enrolled in one or more of the program courses. Seats taken does not necessarily equate to number of students in the program.
  5. Student enrollment in any ELCT course does not indicate whether the student is majoring in ELCT or in other programs majors.
