2016-17 Course Catalog - 84


ELME 215 (4 credits)
Robotics and Motion Control

This course provides students with a background in the programming
and application of industrial robots and general purpose synchronized
multi-axis motion control. Expanding upon previously-learned
concepts, this course examines the combination of multiple axes
of motion to perform useful functions such as creating a flexible
manufacturing system utilizing robots and broadens the knowledge
of different programming languages to initiate and control motion
sequences. Students learn how to implement electronically many
of the simple machines introduced in previous courses such as gear
drives, belt drives, line shafts, and cams.

ELME 218 (4 credits)
Process Control and Industrial Instrumentation

This course covers the fundamentals of process control and
instrumentation as applied in industry for the control of level,
flow, temperature, and pressure. The concept of a control loop is
introduced and each of the loop's components-sensor, controller,
and final element- are examined. Design, documentation,
operation, performance tuning, and troubleshooting of singleloop systems is discussed.

ELME 225 (4 credits)
Computer-Integrated Manufacturing
Systems and PLCs III

This course guides students through the processes of interfacing
and integrating manufacturing components and unit operations
into useful systems. Students work with touch screen displays
(HMI) networked to programmable logic controllers. System
integration is accomplished using digital input/output, DeviceNet,
and TCP/IP Ethernet networking. The course involves working
with a flexible manufacturing lab that includes a bar code reader,
vision system, servo, and AC drive to manipulate a conveyor and
other equipment to sort and fill.

GRAPHIC COMMUNICATIONS AND
PRINTING TECHNOLOGY (GRPH)
GRPH 116 (4 credits)
Introduction to Desktop Publishing

Introduction to the hardware and software used in desktop
publishing. Topics include graphical user interface and current
industry uses such as design, layout, typography, illustration, and
imaging. Students receive hands-on training in the computer
environment using current production software. Basic scanning
techniques are demonstrated.

GRPH 120 (3 Credits)
Digital Photography

This course covers basic digital camera use through practical
application. The assignments center on composition, lighting, and
the use of digital photography within the graphic communications
industry. Color theory and digital manipulation allow students to
integrate their digital photographs into page layout and graphic
design concepts.

84 * Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology

GRPH 126 (4 credits)
Printing Processes I

Covers the various printing processes including offset, screen,
flexo, and gravure. Career opportunities, salary potential,
and the role each process plays in the industry today are also
discussed. Safety procedures and operations are identified.
Upon completion, students should be able to demonstrate an
understanding of the major characteristics, advantages, and
disadvantages of each process.

GRPH 150 (3 credits)
Introduction to Lithography

This course introduces students to the basic fundamentals of
lithography. Through practical application, students develop a working
knowledge of this printing process with a strong concentration into
multi-color image reproduction and image registration.
Prerequisite: GRPH 126; minimum grade of "C" required

GRPH 155 (3 credits)
Introduction to Screen Printing

This course introduces students to the basic fundamentals of
screen printing. Through practical application, students develop
a working knowledge of this printing process with a strong
concentration into multi-color image reproduction and image
registration.
Prerequisite: GRPH 126; minimum grade of "C" required

GRPH 160 (3 credits)
Graphic Communications I

Covers the history, development, and commercial applications of
printing processes. Students learn about the curriculum and the
industry including its processes, products, and careers. Emphasis
is placed on the attributes which are most desirable for successful
entry and advancement.

GRPH 165 (3 credits)
Multimedia and Web Design

Introduces the fundamentals of design and production for
presentations and the World Wide Web. Basics of hypertext
markup language (HTML), the use of authoring software, and
making portable data format (PDF) documents for internet
downloads and multimedia basics are covered.
Prerequisite: GRPH 120; minimum grade of "D" required

GRPH 207 (3 Credits)
Bindery and Finishing

Bindery and finishing is an increasingly important part of the
printing process as it can provide unique physical characteristics
to a finished product. Students develop an understanding of
both the physical processes of bindery and finishing, along with
understanding the creative application and added value these
processes can provide to a final piece. Along with theory, students
have the opportunity to operate folding equipment, produce die
cuts, and create varnishes.
