    Semester 1
    # CAD1100   -   002   -   Computer-Aided Drafting I

    Prerequisite: IMM 1155 (for IMTN students only) This is a hands-on course utilizing a computer to perform computer-aided drafting using the latest version of AutoCAD. Topics include drawing construction, scaling, editing, dimensioning, layering, entity controls and blocks, with the objective of producing industry-standard drawings.

    # ELC1107   -   003   -   Prints & Electrical Codes I

    The electrical safety codebook is introduced in this course. Details of construction must be studied and interpreted by each skilled construction trade including, masons, carpenters, electricians, and others, before the actual work is started. The ability to visualize an accurate three-dimensional picture requires knowledge of blueprint reading. Since all of the skilled trades use a common set of plans, the student must be able to interpret the lines and symbols that refer to the electrical installation also those used by the other construction trades. The student must know the structural makeup of the building and the construction materials to be used.

    # ELC1125   -   005   -   Electrical Installation I

    For one hour per week in a classroom setting, students will be introduced to the safety requirements of the electrical trade. In both construction and industrial applications with reference to the Occupational, Health and Safety Act and Regulations.

    # ELR1121   -   006   -   Electrical Fundamentals

    Students will be introduced to and become familiar with using the digital multimeter, the oscilloscope, and a signal generator to work with as they perform numerous labs on the understanding of different types of circuits and how they work. Students will also be introduced to magnetism, inductance, and capacitance and their operating characteristics in DC and AC circuits.

    # ENG1551   -   001   -   Writing Fundamentals: Ind. Study

    This course is required in the first semester of most post-secondary programs at Cambrian. The purpose of the course is to allow students to develop their independent learning skills and to review the fundamental conventions of Standard English.

    # EUS1100   -   002   -   E & USA Vestibule

    The Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA), became law in 1979. The purpose of this law is to protect all workers in the Province of Ontario. It provides workers with three fundamental rights, the right to know, the right to participate and the right to refuse unsafe work. The objective of the Basic Certification program is to provide participants with a working knowledge of the OHSA.

    # MTH1152   -   003   -   Electrical Math I

    An introduction to the study of basic technical mathematics and their application to the solution of problems involving electrical engineering. Introduction to some basic ideas of electrical engineering and the use of mathematical methods to solve problems in those areas. Topics include basic arithmetic, decimals and percentages, powers and roots, systems of measurement, basic algebra, linear equations, the basics of DC circuits and multiplying and factoring polynomials.

    Semester 2
    # ELC1211   -   005   -   Electrical Installation II

    In this "hands on" practical course students continue to develop and review the knowledge and skills learned in the Electrical Fundamentals from the first semester. Students will demonstrate proper tool selection and usage, electrical components and circuit testing, as well as determining the correct selection of materials for proper electrical circuit installations. Students produce projects to develop familiarity and competent workmanship as they apply the Canadian and Ontario Electrical Codes to specific electrical installations. Students will install and understand electrical components such as relays, transformers, motors, starters and electronic devices to demonstrate proper application and circuit control. Students will determine basic motor controls and develop ladder logic.

    # ELC1215   -   004   -   Motor Control Fundamentals

    This course will be covering the following topics - Electrical Theory, and Industrial Motor Control basics. The electrical theory will cover magnetism, electro magnetic induction, wire sizing, voltage drop, power and horsepower ratings of electrical devices. The Motor Control component will review relay operation, relay logic, the development of ladder, schematic and wiring diagrams, control transformers and control devices.

    # ELC1226   -   003   -   Electronics Theory

    This course is designed to introduce the student to a working knowledge of basic digital techniques and familiarity with TTL devices. Practical applications are emphasized. Logic circuits are discussed with the utilization of truth tables to predict circuit outputs based on sequential control inputs. The transition from ladder logic relay circuits to solid-state logic circuits will be addressed. This subject will also cover combinational logic, binary, hexadecimal numbering systems as well as Boolean logic.

    # ELC2308   -   003   -   Prints & Electrical Codes II

    The student will apply information compiled from commercial drawings, the Canadian and Ontario Electrical Safety Code, job specifications, and other applicable codes and standards to solve project-related problems and communication solutions.

    # ENG1552   -   002   -   Technical Writing I

    Prerequisite: ENG 1551 This is the first communication course for technology at Cambrian. Students practice the fundamentals of technical writing by preparing short documents, researching technical information, and presenting oral reports. In this course, students meet General Education requirements by researching the growing impact of technology on society and by heightening their critical thinking through research.

    # MTH1252   -   003   -   Electrical Math II

    This course is a continuation of the study of basic technical mathematics and their application to the solution of problems involving physics and electrical circuits and equipment, utilizing trigonometry of oblique triangles, simultaneous linear equations, quadratic equations, exponents, and logarithms.
