2017-18 AcademicCatalog - 56

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

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 107 (4 credits)
Electrical Systems I

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.

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 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.

ELME 204 (4 credits)
Mechanical Systems III

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.

ELME 208 (4 credits)
Programmable Logic Controllers II

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 builtin human-machine interface (HMI) which allows program
control and status update through a built-in touch screen.
