Course Descriptions

ELCTS 131: INTRODUCTION TO BASIC ELECTRICITY

2 hrs. (OC)

Prerequisite: MAT 106 with a grade of "C" or better or higher mathematics course

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.

ELCTS 132: SERVICE ELECTRONICS - D.C. CIRCUITS

2 hrs. (OC)

Prerequisite: MAT 106 with a grade of "C" or better or higher mathematics course

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.

ELCTS 133: SERVICE ELECTRONICS - A.C. CIRCUITS

2 hrs. (OC)

Prerequisite: Credit or concurrent enrollment in ELCTS 132

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.

ELCTS 134: SERVICE ELECTRONICS - BASIC SOLID STATE

2 hrs. (OC)

Prerequisite: ELCTS 133 with a grade of "C" or better

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'ss ability to analyze circuit performance by using modern test equipment.

ELCTS 135: SERVICE ELECTRONICS - ADVANCED SOLID STATE

2 hrs. (OC)

Prerequisite: ELCTS 134 with a grade of "C" or better

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 I.C.s) and an introduction to solid state control used for motors, relays and the silicon controlled rectifier.

ELCTS 136: SERVICE ELECTRONICS - DIGITAL CIRCUITS

2 hrs. (OC)

Prerequisite: ELCTS 131, ELCTS 132, and ELCTS 133 all with a grade of "C" or better

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.
