Video tour previews fast-moving field of electronics

If you have ever wondered “how the world works,” electronics & computer engineering technology may be the perfect path for you! Get a glimpse into Penn College labs and see how students are blending theory with hands-on experiences in electronic circuits and devices, robotics and automated systems, and more. Edward J. Almasy Jr., associate professor of electronics, provides an overview of a fast-moving, rapidly changing career field that empowers the globe – in settings large and small, from industry to the comforts of home. “There’s more electronics out there than you may realize,” he says in a virtual-tour video. “You just look around the room wherever you’re at right now. You have several electronics devices – your phone, your key fob for your car, the things that are controlling the temperature in that room. They’re all based on electronics and computer engineering technology.”
