ENGT 1000

Provides a study of engineering technology as a career field and describes the knowledge and skills required for academic and occupational success. Topics include: engineering technology career, measurement and standards, mathematical operators, engineering tools, and engineering concepts. Lads reinforce mathematical, mechanical and electrical concepts through practical exercises, such as measurement and calculations of density of objects, relative humidity, use of a digital multi-meter, building circuits, use of precision instruments, and team exercises.

ELCR 1005

Develops the ability to solder and desolder connectors, components, and printed circuit boards using industry standards. Topics include: safety practices, soldering, desoldering, anti-static grounding, and surface mount techniques.

ECET 1191

This course emphasizes fundamental concepts of problem solving using a high level source language. Laboratory work is designed to acquaint students with computer facilities, software, and programming fundamentals. Topics include: system fundamentals, concepts of structured programming, arrays, functions, and engineering applications.

ICET 2010

This course introduces electromechanical devices which are essential control elements in electrical systems. Topics include: fundamentals of electromechanical devices, control elements in electrical circuits, typical devices such as generators and alternators, D.C. and A.C. motors and controls, and transformers. Quantitative analysis of power losses, power factors, and efficiencies in D.C., single-phase and three-phase dynamos are stressed. Laboratory work parallels class work.

DFTG 1101
Corequisite: COMP 1000

Establishes safety practices as they relate to a drafting environment. Introduces basic CAD functions while presenting essential principles and practices for line relationships, scale, and geometric construction.

UAST 1100

This course introduces fundamental concepts necessary for the operation of unmanned aerial vehicles (drones) and prepares students for drone use in commercial settings. Laboratory demonstrations and student practice parallel course work. Topics include: Commercial Applications, Laws and Regulations, Drone Operations, Operational Limitations, Remote Pilot in Command certification and Responsibilities, aircraft Requirements and Safety Considerations.
