ELCTS 131 INTRODUCTION TO BASIC ELECTRICITY

2 Credit Hours (OC)
This course is designed to give the student the basic computational and laboratory skills needed for further study in electronics. The student will develop the necessary skills while learning the fundamental principles and terminology of the fields of electricity and electronics.

Pre-requisite: Appropriate math placement score or departmental approval


ELCTS 132 SERVICE ELECTRONICS - D.C. CIRCUITS

2 Credit Hours (OC)
This study lays the foundation for all of the electronics with the study of Ohm's Law and its application to D.C. circuits. Major topics include: Ohm's Law, series circuits, parallel circuits, combination circuits, Kirchhoff's Laws, and power relationships. Major emphasis is placed on hands-on laboratory experimentation.

Pre-requisite: Appropriate math placement score or departmental approval


ELCTS 133 SERVICE ELECTRONICS - A.C. CIRCUITS

2 Credit Hours (OC)
This course builds on the foundation established in D.C. circuits, and includes the analysis and application of A.C. circuits. Topics include alternating current and voltage, capacitance, inductance, series, parallel and complex circuits as well as phasor concepts applied to A.C. circuits. Three phase industrial power is also introduced in this principles course.

Pre-requisite: ELCTS 132 with a grade of 'C' or better or departmental approval


ELCTS 134 SERVICE ELECTRONICS - BASIC SOLID STATE

2 Credit Hours (OC)
This course introduces the student to basic solid state devices and circuits, including common applications of diodes and transistors. Laboratory activities will further develop the student's ability to analyze circuit performance by using standard laboratory test equipment.

Pre-requisite: ELCTS 133 with a grade of "C" or better, or departmental approval


ELCTS 135 SERVICE ELECTRONICS - ADVANCED SOLID STATE

2 Credit Hours (OC)
This course is a continuation of ELCTS 134. It uses the principles of that course and applies them to power supplies (including filtering), power amplifiers, linear integrated circuits (operational amplifiers and hybrid Integrated Circuits) and an introduction to solid state control used for motors, relays and the silicon controlled rectifier.

Pre-requisite: ELCTS 134 with a grade of "C" or better or departmental approval


ELCTS 136 SERVICE ELECTRONICS - DIGITAL CIRCUITS

2 Credit Hours (OC)
This course is designed to teach the student the fundamentals of digital circuits. A wide range of digital circuits and systems will be presented and the student will learn to analyze and troubleshoot them.

Pre-requisite: ELCTS 133 with a grade of "C" or better or departmental approval
