The purpose of this paper was to describe students’ attitudes enrolled in an electronics and Electrical constructions subject while working in laboratory of electronics science. Especially, the aim of the research is the analysis of the believes, attitudes, understanding and intentions of the Electrical students of Technological Institute of Kozani, Greece in order to estimate the factors that determine the degree of understanding of the subject of electronics constructions and following this the range of its future professional use. The Students’ Attitude toward Electronics and Electrical Constructions Subject (SATEECS) scale was developed in order to measure Electrical students of Technological Institutes students’ attitudes towards electronics constructions subject. Important variables related to electronics and electrical constructions such as mathematics ability, student anxiety, student confidence, subject difficulty, subject value and gender continue to influence student attitudes. The methods used for the analysis of data were the implicative statistical analysis and the principal components analysis. Implications from the findings of this study are also discussed.
