All topics covered during lecture in the program are also explored during the lab portion of each class. The wide range of test equipment utilized in the lab gives students an opportunity to train with equipment they can expect to find in the workplace. Lab equipment includes digital oscilloscopes, digital multimeters, function generators, variable power supplies, breadboards and data acquisition hardware and software.
There are volunteer opportunities throughout each semester that provide training opportunities for students to gain hands-on experience in electronics. These opportunities include work with the Boy Scouts, sumo-bot competition and robotics competition.
Students are also encouraged to join student clubs including the Biomedical Engineering Society, Society of Women Engineers, Society of Manufacturing Engineers, Electronics Club and N9GTC Amateur Radio club. Participation provides students with hands-on learning, networking and professional development opportunities.
