Who Should Enroll? 
Electronics is looking for students who like being creative, building and designing their own projects, working with computers, and are excited about learning how things work. 

Employment Opportunities 
Students who successfully complete the Electronics program will be able to find jobs or further their studies in the alarm industry (residential or commercial), work with telecommunications and cable companies, and automobile electronics. 

Additional Information 
If you dream it, we can build it.  A significant amount of time in the Electronics program is spent applying what you will learn.  Students are the number one drivers of projects undertaken in this program, such as: an electric guitar, small keyboard, LED light art projects, and a motorized mobile chair, to name a few.  This is the place for students who want to create.
