WARREN TECH ELECTRONICS TECHNOLOGY

Warren County Technical School’s Electronics Technology Academy is a comprehensive program covering electronic theory. The program starts with basic electrical circuits and progresses through complex circuit analysis.  The theory learned is applied to advanced programming of microcontroller circuits.

Students who complete this program will have the ability to either seamlessly integrate into the work environment or go onto institutions of higher learning. Problem solving and independent thinking are emphasized throughout all four years. Most students pass industry certification exams such as A+ for computers or CEA for electronic technicians.

The program starts with an introduction to skills needed for many careers in electronics. Students are trained to utilize common test instruments while learning about circuit construction. Next they progress to advanced electronic theory, including the basics of semiconductors and power supplies, transistor theory, and amplifier circuits.
Students’ advance to Digital concepts. This theory forms the basis for the learning of computer/network troubleshooting and maintenance. This is followed by an introduction to robotic concepts, computer microcontrollers and their programming. Students are challenged to write software which controls various robotic devices. In the final year of the program they pick one or more specialized topics to study. These topics include: project design and management, A+ computer repair and maintenance, or technology for green renewable energy. Throughout this school year, students take one of many industry-accepted, certification exams in computers, electronics, or energy.
