                               CURRICULAR GUIDE

Avionics 
Associate in Applied Science Degree

Curriculum Code: 0260  (Effective Fall 2002 - Summer 2007)

Aviation electronics (avionics) is the application of electronics to aviation. 
Avionics technicians install and service complex communication, navigation,
radar, and autopilot equipment.  The avionics work environment is clean, well-
lighted, and temperature-controlled.  Students will find employment
opportunities at airlines, airports, electronics manufacturers, and government
agencies.  LCC Avionics students can qualify for several industry training
certificates from Allied Signal Aerospace.  In addition, LCC offers on-site
testing for the General Radiotelephone Operator License.  Although students do
not need any special skills to start the Avionics Program, they should be
aware that color blindness may cause them difficulty because various
electronic components are color-coded.

PREREQUISITES
Students should see Course Descriptions or Course Offerings for course
prerequisite information.  See the Assessment and Placement Testing section
for skills assessment and advising information.

GENERAL EDUCATION
General education is an important part of this program and includes a
mathematics competency requirement.  To fulfill the mathematics competency
requirement, students may need to complete specific course work in
mathematics.  See the General Education Core Requirements section for
information on how to fulfill these requirements.
