Electronics

Electronics crosses over into many different areas communications, home entertainment, home security, health, medical, robotics, and avionics as a few – including renewable energies. Tec Voc is the only high school in the province to offer certification in the installation of small wind and solar energy systems.
The many challenges and opportunities in electronics exist because you have an interest in making lives more green, more enjoyable, connected, healthier and secure. It is helpful to have an interest in math and science.
 
In Electronics, you will learn about:
• Green energies, wind and solar
• Components and circuit building
• Digital and analog electronics and circuits
• Direct and alternating current fundamentals
• Meters, oscilloscopes, generators and other equipment
• Embedded microcontroller systems
 
Electronics will supply you with a strong background of knowledge
and skills for a smooth transition into:
• Pre-employment
• Employment
• Post-secondary education
 

Grade 10

(ELRV20) Students will learn basic skills, such as soldering, identifying components and reading schematics, to create and complete take home electronics projects. Students will program and control a simple robot and simple input/output devices that may be found attached to home security systems to understand embedded systems. Hands-on experiences in direct current, series circuits, parallel circuits and the use of meters and other related equipment are used for further understanding in the Grade 11 and Grade 12 courses. 2 Credits
 

Grade 11

(ELRV30) Students will understand the fundamentals of semiconductor devices, such as diodes and transistors, by building and analyzing take home projects like a power supply, preamplifier and amplifier. Students will understand and analyze digital concepts by connecting circuits from gates to counters and counting systems using Multisim simulator software. The circuits are downloaded and run on a National Instruments digital platform. Students will build and analyze reactive circuits to understand the effects of an alternating current on reactive components, resistors, capacitors and inductors. 4 Credits
 

Grade 12

(ELRV40) Students will apply topics of learning from grade 10 and grade 11 to a small wind and solar learning station in preparation for certification. Students will also advance their learning and experience of Analog and Digital concepts, such as operational amplifiers, frequency filters, alternating current at an advanced level and other digital circuits and concepts. This level is important for a comfortable transition for those venturing into a postsecondary environment. Work education experiences are also a component of their graduating year. 4 Credits

Post High Electronics Program

This 10 month course is open to those between the ages of 18 and 21 who are seeking to enter colleges or universities. Students must be interested in electronics and be a high school graduate. This program is intended to further a student’s electronics experiences to a vocational electronics level. This course is intended to provide a smooth transition into college/university level programs or entry level positions. Topics include (but are not limited to):
 
• Digital concepts, logic and systems
• Alternating current fundamentals 
• Passive reactive circuits and filters 
• Operational amplifier basics 
• Op-amp frequency filters and deciBels 
• Amplifiers and frequency response 
• Semiconductors
 
The post high student will also complete an industry recognized certified course in the installation of small wind and solar PV systems. There is no cost for the program but students will be required to purchase test vouchers for wind, solar, or wind and solar certification (approximately $150 each).
