metering instruments to take specific measurements to determine
voltage, resistance, current, and power, and to troubleshoot
various circuit layouts. Co-requisite: ELEC 113

ELEC 113 (4 credits)
Electricity I: Theory and Analysis

This course presents principles, laws, and formulas relating to basic
direct current (DC) and alternating current (AC) applications in
electricity. Topics include electron theory, magnetism, DC power
supplies, Ohm's Law, Kirchhoff 's Laws, AC waveform analysis
and basic motor design. Resistive and inductive loads and various
electrical circuit layouts are analyzed.
Co-requisite: ELEC 107

ELEC 117 (4 credits)
Electricity I: Practicum

Workshop projects enable students to develop an understanding
of fundamental residential and preliminary commercial circuit
design and installations, in accordance with the National Electrical
Code (NEC) and associated building regulations.
Co-requisite: ELEC 120

ELEC 120 (3 credits)
Electricity I: Systems Design

This course is an introduction to fundamental residential and
preliminary commercial wiring systems design. Topics include
Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)
certification, electrical and on-the-job safety, tool and material
familiarization, plan design and specifications, wire diagramming,
and the use of applicable National Electrical Code (NEC)
standards. Co-requisite: ELEC 117

ELEC 126 (3 credits)
Electricity II: Systems Design

This course is an advanced study in commercial and industrial
electrical systems design and installation. Sizing various raceway
systems for commercial and industrial applications, custom
electrical enclosure sizing, and poly-phase distribution systems are
reviewed in detail. Industrial process and motor control material,
circuit planning and design, and AC motors sizing and wiring
methods introduce students to advanced electrical control systems.
Prerequisites: ELEC 113, ELEC 117, and ELEC 120
Co-requisite: 168

ELEC 157 (1 credit)
Electricity II: Theory and Analysis Lab

Laboratory assignments enable students to analyze AC waveforms
and AC circuit characteristics by connecting the appropriate
electrical components and utilizing electrical measuring
instruments to take specific measurements. Computer software is
used to enable advanced circuit analysis and troubleshooting.
Prerequisites: ELEC 113, ELEC 117, and ELEC 120
Co-requisite: ELEC 162
