P a g e | 35 Industrial Technology Advanced Manufacturing (You must register for both semester classes during registration) BASIC ELECTRICAL THEORY (S1) – ELE 112 INTRODUCTION TO AUTOMATION (S1) – MFG 125 INDUSTRIAL SAFETY (S2) – ELE 101 DIGITAL ELECTRONICS (S2) – EGT 202 ELECTRICAL APPLICATIONS 1 (S2) – HCR 410 Course Length: 1 year Credits: 2 LCHS, 7 WITCC (Basic Electrical Theory and Introduction to Automation) 2 LCHS, 7 WITCC (Industrial Safety, Digital Electronics, Electrical Applications) Grade Level: 10, 11, 12 Basic Electrical Theory This course will introduce the students to the fundamentals of electricity. Students are immersed in practical, real world examples that illustrate how electricity is distributed and used. Electrical topics will include AC and DC electrical theory, Electrical Circuits, Electrical Power Generation, Motors, and Transformers. Electricity is the most widely used utility and the demand will continue to increase as technology continues to grow. This means that more engineers and technicians will be needed to install, develop, and maintain electrical devices. Introduction to Automation The Intro to Automation course provides a hands-on introduction to industrial automation including hydraulic/pneumatic control and programming of Programmable Logic Controllers. The course examines applications and examples of automated manufacturing systems including function of digital electronics and industrial hydraulics and pneumatics. Industrial Safety This course covers mechanical, chemical, environmental and electrical aspects of safety. The role of OSHA in the workplace is presented. Students will become familiar with forms such as Material Safety Data Sheets and will be trained in the use of (PPE) Personal Protective Equipment and in other safety procedures related to materials handling and storage. Industrial hazards such as fall protection and caught-in/struck-by will be emphasized. Students will receive the OSHA 10 safety training and will be awarded an OSHA 10 card upon successfully completing this course. Digital Electronics The course offers an overview of the basic analog and digital electronics. The course focuses on semiconductor technology and devices, transistors' circuital model and simulation, digital electronics main devices. Students will build circuits using Integrated Control chips and be introduced to circuit building troubleshooting techniques. Electrical Applications This course covers the fundamental concepts of designing, providing, and maintaining electrical controls. Students are introduced to wiring diagrams, ladder diagrams, relays, contactors, sensors, motor starters, and programmable logic controllers. A process control capstone project will be designed and built during this course. DESIGNER’S CHOICE 1 Course Length: 1 Semester Credits: 1 Grade Level: 9,10,11,12 From the beginning of the project based design process to the final project Designer Choice 1 engages students in real life projects and helps students develop science, technology engineering, and mathematics skills that will serve them well into their future. 1st quarter of the semester students will design a set of house plans with basement floor plans, 1st floor plans, elevations, sections, interior elevations, and outside rendering with site plans using Autodesk Revit. 2nd quarter students continue on Revit residential or can design commercial building using Revit or Revit Interior Design Chapter 1 through 6.
