Topics of study include electrical safety, conductors, grounding, soldering, methods of securing electrical connections, fabrication of printed circuit boards, component replacement, common electrical schematic symbols, and use of common electrical test equipment and electrical hand tools. The student will demonstrate the ability to solder, make electrical connections, and safely use various types of measurement equipment upon completion of this course.

Basic Electricity - DC
WWCC ELTR 1520, 3 credits
Prerequisite: TECH 1000, MATH 0920, ELTR 1505 or
Instructor Permission
In this course, the student will develop electrical safety and good shop practice skills. Topics of study include DC electricity theory, units of electricity, Ohm’s Law, Kirchhoff’s Laws, power, resistance, series-parallel circuits, electrical math and the use of formulas, and the use of basic meters. The student must demonstrate the ability to trouble- shoot a complex DC series-parallel circuit upon completion of this course.

Basic Electricity - AC
WWCC ELTR 1530, 3 credits
Prerequisite: ELTR 1520
Topics of study include AC electricity theory, magnetism, inductance, capacitance, reactance, impedance, resonance, AC series-parallel circuits, electrical math and the use of formulas, and the use of the oscilloscope and AC test equipment. The student must demonstrate the ability to trouble- shoot a complex AC series-parallel circuit upon completion of this course.

Intro to Digital Electronics
WWCC ELTR 1760, 4 credits
Prerequisite: ELTR 1700 or Instructor Permission
Topics of study include safety, principles of digital circuits, logic gates, counting circuits, registers, and A/D converters. The student must demonstrate the ability to properly connect and troubleshoot a basic logic control system upon completion of this course.

Intro to Programmable Logical Controllers
WWCC ELTR 2815, 3 credits
Prerequisite: ELTR 2840 or Instructor Permission
This course is designed to provide the students with a theoretical, yet practical, look at PLC’s and their associated devices and systems. Topics of study include safety, schematic and ladder diagrams, programmable logic controller applications, programming and operation. The student must demonstrate the ability to connect and troubleshoot practical industrial control circuits and basic programming of PLC’s upon completion of this course.

Advanced Programmable Logical Controllers
WWCC ELTR 2855, 3 credits
Prerequisite: ELTR 2815 or Instructor Permission
This course focuses on the techniques and laboratory practice for programming and troubleshooting PLC’s and their incorporation in industrial control circuits. Topics of study include safety, schematic and ladder diagrams, as well as programmable logic controller applications, programming, operation, and graphic user interface programs. The student must demonstrate the ability to program, connect, and troubleshoot practical industrial control circuits utilizing PLC’s and personal computers.

Machine Tool Processes I
WWCC MCH 2740, 4 credits
This class covers fundamental lathe operations and special topics to meet the job needs.

Solid Modeling I
WWCC ES 1070, 3 credits
This course will provide an introduction to solid modeling concepts, focusing on the construction of virtual parts. The course will be taught as a combination of both lectures to introduce a concept and labs to allow the application and practice of the concepts. Familiarity with dimensions, drafting, and working drawings is recommended.

Solid Modeling II
WWCC ES 1080, 3 credits
Prerequisite: ES 1070
This course will provide further study into solid modeling concepts, focusing on the construction of virtual parts. Many of the skills learned in Solid Modeling I will be further developed using advanced techniques. The course will be taught as a combination of both lectures to introduce a concept and labs to allow the application and practice of the concepts. Familiarity with dimensions, drafting, and working drawings is recommended.
