well as opportunities to troubleshoot faulted circuits.
Prerequisites: ELEC 216 and ELEC 257

ELEC 267 (4 credits)
Programmable Logic Controllers

This course presents principles and industry standards relating
to the use of PLCs used for the automation of industrial process
controls. Additionally, students learn to utilize the proprietary
programming software to interact with and program PLCs.
Topics include PLC hardware characteristics, Boolean logic,
number systems, relay-type, timing, counter and advanced PLC
instructions. A laboratory component provides students with
the opportunity to design, to install, and to operate various PLCcontrolled processes in a simulated and hands-on environment.
Prerequisites: ELEC 211 and ELEC 257

ELECTRONIC ENGINEERING TECHNOLOGY
(EET)
EET 108 (4 credits)
DC Fundamentals (w/Lab)

Voltage, current, resistance, conductance, power, and energy
are defined. Ohm's law, Kirchhoff 's laws, Thevenin, Norton, and
Superposition theorems are used to analyze resistive circuits.
Components studied include resistors, potentiometers, bridge
circuits, comparators, simple timing circuits, switches, circuit
breakers, relays, h-bridges, solenoids, photo-resistors, thermistors,
voltage sources, and current sources. Students build simple
DC circuits based on concepts and components being studied.
Electrical measurements are performed to verify proper circuit
operation. Circuit construction and measurement techniques are
taught. Students are trained in the use of digital multi-meters and
DC power supplies as test equipment.

EET 118 (4 credits)
AC Fundamentals (w/Lab)

Waveforms, capacitors, inductors, and transformers are studied.
Reactance, impedance, and phase angles are calculated. Pulse
width modulation, time constants, microphones, speakers, passive
filters, power factor, and 3-phase are introduced. A basic overview
of electrical service, residential wiring, and the power grid are
included. Students build simple AC circuits based on concepts
and components being studied. Wave parameters, capacitance,
inductance, impedance, phase angles and other quantities are
measured to verify proper circuit operation. Students are trained
in the use of signal generators and oscilloscopes as test equipment.
