Course Descriptions 

EIE-190 – Industrial Electricity
In Industrial Electricity, students’ study and apply the fundamental principles and laws of electricity such as electro-magnetism, capacitance, inductance, Ohms Law, Kirchoff’s Voltage/ Current laws, and electrical power principles. Students also wire, analyze, and troubleshoot different single-phase and three-phase power and control circuits containing capacitors; control relays; timers; and limit, pressure, float, and proximity switches. Additionally, they wire, configure, and troubleshoot several Variable Frequency Drives used to control the speed and torque of 3-phase motors. Throughout this course, students apply the different aspects of electrical power maintenance and safety. (28 Lecture Hours – 217 Lab Hours)

EIM-198 – Mechanical and Fluid Power
In Mechanical Power & Fluid Power, students’ study and apply fundamental mechanical power principles of belt, chain, and gear driven power transmission systems. Students also thoroughly explore basic, intermediate, and fluid power principles via hydraulic and pneumatic hands-on skill building activities. Throughout this course, students apply the different aspects of mechanical power maintenance and safety.
(35 Lecture Hours – 215 Lab Hours)

EIP-168 – Process Control
In Process Control, students’ study and apply the fundamental principles of industrial automation. Specifically, students wire, configure, and troubleshoot On/Off and Continuous Control circuits utilizing a variety of physical and electronic sensors, Programmable Logic and analog controllers, and final control elements, such as valves and pumps. Students also utilize digital multi-meters as well as 4-20 milli-Amp and 3-15 psi control signal generators to analyze and calibrate process flows, level, pressure, and chemical feed control loop components. Throughout this course, students apply the different aspects of process control maintenance and safety. (28 Lecture Hours – 112 Lab Hours)
