    COMP-1336 -  Computer Literacy
    This course will introduce students to various computer concepts, including Hardware, Operating Systems, Word Processing, and Spreadsheets. Through lecture and hands-on classes, the student will learn each module's everyday uses and apply them to their courses.

    DIGL-3001 -  Digital Techniques

    This course builds upon the concepts in Semiconductor Devices/Analog Electronic Circuits to introduce the student to the digital world. Sequential and combinational logic as applied to modern control systems is studied along with Number Systems, Gates, BooLean Algebra, Digital Adders, Counters and Clock Circuits, Digital to Analog, Analog to Digital Conversions, Multiplexers, Memory Systems, Displays and Digital specifications.

    ELNC-1003 -  Orientation Safety Basic Skills

    The student will gain the knowledge to effectively use the tools, equipment and resources in the Electronics Lab. In addition, acceptable safety standards, correct hand tool use and splicing and soldering will be covered. The student is also introduced to proper mechanical and electrical component interconnections, common wire types and their uses and be able to solder them to a high standard of reliability.

    ELNC-1004 -  Semiconductor Devices/Analog Elec Cir

    In this course students will apply basic skills. Semiconductor devices and circuits are used and studied. Basic troubleshooting techniques will be introduced. Coverage begins with semiconductor theory and progresses to diodes, transistors, thyristor devices and integrated circuits. The semiconductor devices are applied to analog circuitry including power supplies, transistor switching and amplifier circuits, oscillators and operational amplifiers.

    ELNC-1005 -  Fundamentals of Industrial Eltr & Elec
    This course introduces the essentials of electricity and electronics including DC and AC circuits and basic industrial controls, all of the passive components used in Electrical/Electronic circuits and applications. Sources of electricity electrical units and calculations are investigated. Printed circuit board production methods are covered as well as designed and produced. Magnetism, induction and capacitance are studied with directed application to circuits. The internal circuitry of common test equipment concludes the course.

    ELNC-3002 -  Industrial Sensors and Motor Control I

    This course takes an in-depth look at various control devices found in the modern factory as well as industrial sensors and transducers. Electric motors, motor controls and circuit protection devices are studied. Advantages and disadvantages of the various types of motor and their control devices are surveyed. A unit is devoted to circuit protection devices and lock-out/tag-out techniques. All motor control circuits studied are duplicated by the student in the practical lab sections of the course.

    ELNC-3003 -  E/C Automated Systems & Motor Control II
