Electronics Technology - Diploma

 

CAD-101 - INTRODUCTION TO CAD

Lecture: 1Lab: 4OJT: 0Clinical: 0 Credit: 3

Description: An introduction to computer aided design and drafting. Actual hands-on experience in designing, drawing, and dimensioning using CAD micro-based CAD software. The course presents logical step-by-step instruction about the CAD commands, mode settings, drawing aids, shortcuts and other valuable characteristics of CAD. Finished copies of the students’ work will be made on a printer or plotter.

 

CSC-140 - COMPUTER FUNDAMENTALS

Lecture: 3Lab: 2OJT: 0Clinical: 0 Credit: 4

Description: This course is an introduction to the microcomputer in both hardware and software. The terminology, internal structure, board identification and associated peripheral equipment will be introduced. The Microsoft Office suite will be covered. The operating system will be covered along with structured programming in QBASIC.

 

EGR-420 - PLTW DIGITAL ELECTRONICS

Lecture: 2Lab: 2OJT: Clinical: 0 Credit: 3

Description: This course is an introduction to fundamental digital circuits and systems presented by study of integrated circuit logic modules. Enphasis is placed on troubleshooting techniques and tools.

 

ELT-116 - PRINCIPLES OF ELECTRONICS

Lecture: 3Lab: 4OJT: 0Clinical: 0 Credit: 5

Description: This course analyzes the physical phenomenon of electricity in direct and alternating current circuits. Circuit analysis shall be through the application of various laws and theorems, and in the laboratory, through the use of typical test equipment. Prerequisite: placement test.

 

ELT-232 - PLC APPLICATIONS

Lecture: 2Lab: 4OJT: 0Clinical: 0 Credit: 4

Description: This course provides a hands-on approach to develop fundamental knowledge of PLC (Programmable Logic Controller) principles by exposing the student to ladder logic circuits and their practical applications. Ancillary input and output devices used with PLC systems are included as well as elementary electrical machines. While the laboratory utilizes Allen-Bradley PLC's, a generic design approach is stressed during the lectures. Design of practical working control circuits is included to enhance understanding. Also included are the various number systems, digital codes and program commands used in PLC's and integrated systems. Prerequisite: CSC-140 or equivalent.

 

ELT-329 - DIGITAL ELECTRONICS FOR ET

Lecture: 3Lab: 2OJT: 0Clinical: 0 Credit: 4

Description: An introduction to fundamental digital circuits and systems is presented by study of integrated circuit logic modules. Number systems, coding and elemental Boolean principles are also covered. Emphasis is placed on troubleshooting techniques and tools.

 

ELT-355 - ELECTRONIC CIRCUITS I

Lecture: 3Lab: 4OJT: 0Clinical: 0 Credit: 5

Description: Introduction to semiconductor circuit analysis. The operational characteristics and applications of diodes, bipolar and field-effect transistors, and linear integrated circuits will be examined. Troubleshooting methods and techniques will be discussed and applied in the laboratory. Prerequisite: ELT-116.

 

ENG-111 - TECHNICAL WRITING

Lecture: 3Lab: 0OJT: 0Clinical: 0 Credit: 3

Description: Studies the rhetorical techniques specifically oriented to industrial requirements. Applies expository patterns as incorporated within the report apparatus, including such specialized formats as process analysis, progress/ lab reports, feasibility study, and the proposal. Also includes correspondence and application of basic library research skills. Course designed to satisfy specified career program requirements. Prerequisites: Mandatory COMPASS, ACT or AccuPlacer test score and madatory eWrite or WritePlacer score (per SCC Writing Scores & Mandatory Course Placement Chart), or a C- or above in ENG-061, College Preparatory Writing II. No waivers.

 

MAT-702 - INTRODUCTION TO MATH APPLICATIONS

Lecture: 2Lab: 2OJT: 0Clinical: 0 Credit: 3

Description: This course is offered to students who can profit from an applied course in mathematics and will prepare students who need to develop skills for MAT-704. It is designed as an introductory level algebra course recommended for students with one year of high school algebra. Emphasis is on the building of basic algebra skills and the application of these mathematical techniques. The course studies the relationship of geometry and algebra as they apply to various fields. This course will also cover whole numbers/decimals, integers, fractions/percents, direct measurement, basic geometric concepts/relationships, linear equations, and right-triangle trigonometry. Prerequisite:MAT-052 or Pre-Algebra COMPASS score of 50-99 or ACT Math score of 18-19 or math faculty approval.
