    This course is devoted to the introduction of Compter Aided Drawing (CAD) using AutoCad 2008. Topics include: Drawing file setup, creating and editing two dimensional objects, managing object properties, dimensioning, text, blocks, layout and plotting.

    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.

    ELEC-1037 -  Industrial Electricity

    An introductory course to the basic theory and practice related to Industrial Electricity. Topics inclued basic electrical test equipment, electrical DC and AC theory, motors and components, different types of voltages, magnetism and electro-magnetism, motor control circuits, and circuit protection devices. The practical section concludes with building simulated, motor control circuits as well as troubleshooting assignments. Electrical Safety will be stressed.

    ELNC-1006 -  Programmable Logic Controllers

    The course is designed to provide the fundamental knowledge and skills required to comprehend, program, and troubleshoot PLC control systems. After beginning with the study of Power Supplies and Digital Logic concepts, the course explores the fundamentals of PLC systems. The course then proceeds with control diagrams, programming languages and ladder logic control circuits. The course also explains what is available in PLC control and where and why they are used.

    HIST-1026 -  The History of Manufacturing

    The intent of this course is to give students an understanding of the development of modern manufacturing. The course will highlight the key aspects of manufacturing in a historical context and relate them to modern day needs.
