TSTC’s star power prep
TSTC graduates gain additional advantages and job credibility, not to mention earnings by qualifying for industry certifications such as those administered by National Institute for Certification in Engineering Technologies (NICET), the International Society of Certified Electronics Technicians (ISCET) and the Electronics Technicians Association (ETA).
Also, students in Electronics Technology gain exposure to established professionals though the program's advisory committee and various industry groups.
TSTC’s Electronics Technology faculty comes to the college with years of professional experience in the field.
Small class size
At TSTC, our Electronics Technology classes average 20 students per class to ensure instructors have plenty of time to work with each student.
Compared to other colleges, TSTC students spend a lot less time in the classroom and much more time in work settings, operating the instruments they will use in their respective fields. Students spend more than 60 percent of their time learning by doing the actual work they will do upon graduating from college. It’s just one of the many ways TSTC ensures you get the strong training you need to succeed in your career choice.
With an advisory committee consisting of current industry professionals, who meet at least annually to direct the program’s curriculum, TSTC ensures its programs match industry needs. This partnership makes it easier for TSTC graduates to be work ready and obtain jobs when it comes to hiring time. Many major companies understand the important part they play by serving on a TSTC advisory committee.
How do we do this? As Electronics Technology professionals, our advisory committees assist the college in determining the courses you study, providing a valuable advantage. They can ensure that what we teach matches what their industry is seeking.
