ELECTRO-MECHANICAL TECHNOLOGY
(Mechatronics) (ELME)
ELME 104 (4 credits)
Mechanical Systems I

This course introduces the principles and applications of the most
commonly found mechanical drive and fluid power components
in an industrial manufacturing environment. Topics include
mechanical power transmission devices, hydraulics, and pneumatics
through a fundamental level along with related construction and
troubleshooting techniques. All course material is supplemented
with practical hands-on exposure to the items described.

ELME 105 (4 credits)
Manufacturing Fundamentals

mechanical power transmission devices and pneumatics and
hydraulics through an intermediate level along with related
construction and troubleshooting techniques. All course
material is supplemented with practical hands-on exposure to
the items described.

ELME 117 (4 credits)
Electrical Systems II

This course covers the principles, application, troubleshooting,
and maintenance of rotating electrical motors and electronic
motor drives as used in industry. Topics include various types
of single- and three-phase motors, various types of DC motors,
reduced voltage starting, braking, DC electronic drives and AC
variable frequency drives. The course builds upon the principles
and applications covered in ELME 107.

This course provides students with an overview of the various
types of manufacturing that take place in the discrete, hybrid,
and continuous sectors and of the jobs that must be performed
within manufacturing. The course provides an introduction to the
techniques and resources that manufacturers employ to improve
operations, preparing students for independent investigating and
life-long learning. It provides basic knowledge and skills with
regard to print/schematic reading, CAD drawing, measurement,
and quality assurance. At least one plant tour is included as part
of this course to provide firsthand validation of the topics covered.

ELME 204 (4 credits)
Mechanical Systems III

ELME 107 (4 credits)
Electrical Systems I

ELME 208 (4 credits)
Programmable Logic Controllers II

This course covers the principles and application of alternating
current (AC) and direct current (DC) electricity, industrial sequential
control, and electrical controls construction as found in a typical
manufacturing environment. Topics include AC and DC circuit
analysis and measurement in resistive, capacitive, and inductive
circuits; AC fixed-speed motor control; control transformers, relays,
timers, and counters; mechanical, pneumatic, and hydraulic input
and output devices; sequencing and logic functions; introduction
to component and systems troubleshooting; electrical wiring
practices; conduit and raceways; and requirements for conductors,
disconnects, and raceways as specified by the National Electric
Code (NEC). All course material is supplemented with practical
hands-on exposure to the items described.

ELME 109 (4 credits)
Programmable Logic Controllers I

This course covers the principles and application of programmable
logic controllers (PLCs) as found in a typical manufacturing
environment. Topics include understanding the physical
components that make up a PLC, basic PLC programming, and
understanding the components that make up input/output,
including AC/ DC discrete input modules and analog input and
output modules; how these modules connect to the PLC; and to
output devices such as motor controls, variable frequency drives,
valves, and other types of machine controls.

This course covers the principles and applications of the most
commonly found mechanical drive and fluid power components
in an industrial manufacturing environment. Topics include
mechanical power transmission devices, pneumatics, and
hydraulics through at an advanced level along with related
construction and troubleshooting techniques. All course
material is supplemented with practical hands-on exposure to
the items described.

This course covers the principles and application of programmable
logic controllers (PLCs) featuring the IEC 61131-3 programming
standard. Topics include how to install PLCs; how to configure
modules; how to wire input and output modules, including
temperature-sensing devices (thermocouples and resistive
temperature detectors) and analog devices featuring 0-10 volts
and 4-20 ma standards. The course also includes programming the
built-in human-machine interface (HMI) which allows program
control and status update through a built-in touch screen.

ELME 214 (4 credits)
Mechatronics Seminar and Advanced Project

This course provides a capstone experience for the associate of
applied science degree in Electro-Mechanical Technology by
requiring that students-with a teammate(s)-apply skills and
knowledge from each of the program areas to an independent
mechatronics project. Students develop and implement a project
plan and budget approved by the instructor that demonstrates
the ability to integrate the skills and knowledge obtained over
the previous three semesters of study. Students work with actual
industrial equipment and machinery in a realistic application. This
course broadens students' knowledge with respect to technology
suppliers, equipment, and applications. It is strongly suggested
that students begin planning for this course during the semester
prior to the semester in which the course is completed.

ELME 116 (4 credits)
Mechanical Systems II

This course covers the principles and applications of the most
commonly found mechanical drive and fluid power components
in an industrial manufacturing environment. Topics include
