The Diploma in Electronics Technology is a modern and integrated system of technical training that combines trade-related theory, hands-on laboratory activities, and industry-based practical experience. In response to the increasing demand for middle-level manpower of the country’s industries, the diploma program seeks to produce a new breed of technical manpower imbued with authentic human and Christian values and equipped with substantial occupational skills and knowledge necessary for obtaining gainful employment.
The program aims to provide the skills and knowledge relevant to many vocations within the broad fields of the trade rather than those of a particular industry or sector of industry. This gives a wider opportunity for the graduates to find a place in the workforce. The program through its Entrepreneurship elective unit gives that option for the graduates to venture into their own small business using the knowledge and skills learned. Using this diploma program as a foundation, graduates may decide to pursue further studies related to their trade specialization.
Students of the Diploma in Electronics Technology are required to complete a minimum of eighty units of study. This excludes the extra credits gained by taking the elective units. By covering the required number of units in every year level a semester, it would take participants two years to complete the program. Elective units are offered in Workshop / Laboratory Management and Entrepreneurship.
In addition to the intensive training to mould a true Bosconian, In-Plant Training (IPT) is included in the Diploma Program. This is to give the students a firsthand experience in the world of actual work by being indentured in the different companies around the National Capital District. On a case-to-case basis, students are allowed to go for their IPT outside of Port Moresby especially if they need to do their industry experience in their sponsoring companies.
