Pursue a Hands–On Career in Electronic & A/V Systems

Lighting control and low level home automation have created a great deal of opportunity in the Electronic & Audio Visual Systems field. The demand for home theater installation or commercial and residential security systems are also great avenues in this industry.

The Electronic & Audiovisual Systems (EAV) program is designed to prepare students for employment in the audiovisual systems, electronic systems and live sound reinforcement industries. EAV students develop a solid foundation in principles of electricity and electronics, and the application of low–voltage electronics to residential and commercial applications. Students acquire the basics of media systems design, especially as it relates to sound and video systems. They learn low voltage installation techniques including, networking systems, integration of audio and video components, and live sound reinforcement. Students work with a variety of tools and hardware, including digital multimeters, cable testers, reflectometers, cabling, switches, connector blocks and equipment racks. Throughout the program they are trained in on–the–job safety.
