Description

The Home Electronics curriculum is designed to fulfill the growing requirement of trained professionals in the area of Home Technology Automation. In fact, home technology integrators anticipate seeing nearly 15 percent growth in their business in 2007, according to a January survey by CE Pro magazine. That follows a year (2006) in which integrators said they experienced revenue growth of 35 percent. But home technology integration firms face a challenge in finding individuals with the right skills.

The Telecommunication Systems course introduces students to the fundamentals of the telecommunication system. Students are instructed on the design, installation, and configuration of home telecommunication systems, including advanced wired and wireless systems. They learn to install in-house services, such as voice mail, intercom, and call conferencing. Students also learn about testing and troubleshooting procedures.
