EET 207 Internship 4
This work experience is designed to expose the student to an industrial, commercial, or clinical environment. Students are placed into a contracted facility after completing 50 credit hours, having a 2.00 GPA, and meeting all other program prerequisites and academic requirements prior to their final spring semester. Students are expected to adhere to all policies and regulations associated with the facility. Students will work on projects selected to expose the student to “live” work situations, while building upon the student’s knowledge, skill and attitude as an entry-level technician and will be used to grade the student’s performance for the course. (No compensation)(200 hours)
EET 208 Cooperative Educational Experience 4
This work experience is designed to expose the student to an industrial,
commercial, or clinical environment. Students are placed into a contracted facility after completing 50 credit hours, having a 2.00 GPA, and meeting all other program prerequisites and academic requirements prior to their final spring semester. Students are expected to adhere to all policies and regulations associated with the facility. Students will work on projects selected to expose the student to “live” work situations, while building upon the student’s knowledge, skill and attitude as an entry-level technician and will be used to grade the student’s performance for the course. (Compensation) (200 hours)
     
AMT 221 Programmable Logic Controllers 4
This course is designed to introduce the student to modern programmable logic controllers through theory and hands on experiments with the CompactLogix Programmable Automation Controllers (PAC’s). The student will investigate the setup, configuration, programming, and implementation of the controllers through lab exercises designed to have the student build a system from beginning to end. The course then continues with an examination of the different types of hardware devices that are used in conjunction with PAC’s. An emphasis is placed on programming projects throughout the course.
