70 Southside Virginia Community College ELECTRONICS (Christanna and John H. Daniel Campuses) Award: Associate of Applied Science Length: Sixty-eight credit hour program Purpose: The growth of the electronics and manufacturing industries and the steady demand for qualified electronics technicians have created a need for trained personnel to meet these requirements. The associate of applied science degree curriculum in Electronics is designed to prepare the student for full-time employment immediately upon completion of the community college program. Occupational Objectives: The following occupational titles represent examples of possible employment opportunities: Communications Technician Computer Technician Electronics Technician Field Service Engineer Industrial Electronics Technician Instrument Technician Laboratory Technician Radio and Television Technician Technical Writer Graduates may also use this program as a foundation to the engineering technology program at other senior institutions such as Old Dominion University, Virginia State University, University of North Carolina, and University of Tennessee. Program Description: The electronics curriculum is a two-year program combining instruction required for competence as technician, associate engineer, engineer in training, etc. in business and industry. The first year of the electronics curriculum is designed to establish a general basis in mathematics and electronics circuits. The second year develops this basis in a number of important areas of electronics such as computers, control circuits, measurements and communications. Instruction includes both the theoretical concepts and practical applications needed for future success in electronics. Students are advised to consult with their faculty advisor or a counselor for assistance in planning their program. It should be noted that students planning to transfer will be required to take MTH 163 and MTH 168. Southside Virginia Community College fully supports Tech Prep Linkages with high schools. College programs are designed to provide a seamless transition between high school Tech Prep and college technical and engineering programs. Special Admission Requirements: In addition to meeting the college’s general admission requirements, students must have satisfactorily completed a minimum of two units of college preparatory mathematics or the equivalent in high school.
