125 Course Descriptions ELE160-C Residential Wiring Theory/Lab 6 The Residential Wiring Lab introduces you to basic electrical wiring methods, simple circuits, and residential devices and their uses in the electrical trade. This course is taught using the “hands-on” approach. Corequisites: ELE120-E, ELE108-C, ELE150-C ELE161-C Commercial Wiring Theory/Lab 8 Commercial Wiring Theory/Lab introduces you to commercial wiring methods and materials. Included are conduit bending and threading, flexible metal conduit, armored cable, and low voltage control. The National Electrical Code is integrated into all lab projects. Prerequisites: ELE160-C, ELE108-C; Corequisite: ELE109-C ELE163-C Electrical Wiring 3 This course will cover the fundamentals of various types of wiring methods used in industry. There will be both classroom and hands-on application of the NEC in the areas of process control and monitoring. The use and installation of various types of raceways and the selection, installation, and termination of conductors will be stressed. Control voltages, low voltage applications, and hazardous locations will be significant topics for additional discussion. Prerequisite: ELE121-E ELE168-C Industrial Wiring Theory/Lab 6 Through a combination of classroom and lab experiences you will learn wiring methods, systems, and materials unique to industrial and large commercial electrical construction. Included are electric and hydraulic conduit bending, power conduit threading, fire alarm systems, power factor correction and system harmonics. Prerequisites: ELE109-C, ELE161-C ELE170-C Power Distribution 2 This course consists of AC generator and transformer fundamentals, a review of AC characteristics, and a familiarization of various types of AC generators and transformer fundamentals including induction principles. Ratios, losses, efficiency, and uses are presented. Power transformers are taught in-depth and an introduction to special purpose transformers is offered. A thorough presentation of three-phase systems relative to their theories and various configurations of the delta and wye connections will be utilized to prepare the student for practical applications. Prerequisite: ELE121-E ELE186-E Relay Logic 4 This course will provide coverage of control devices and control circuitry used in industrial electrical systems. Coverage will include electrical safety, electrical symbols, line diagrams, relays, motor starters, solenoids, common motor circuits, variable speed drive circuits and the control of pneumatic devices. It is designed to provide hands on training using industrial control equipment. Prerequisite: ELE163-C ELE191-C Motor Theory 2 This course is an overview in the theory of basic motor action of both AC and DC motors. Studies will cover many different types of motors, the characteristics of each, theory of operation, and applications of each as they apply to industry. Prerequisites: ELE121-E, ELE161-C ELE199-E Motor Controls Principles 5 This course will provide coverage of control devices and control circuitry used in industrial electrical systems. Coverage will include electrical safety, electrical symbols, line diagrams, relays, motor starters, solenoids, common motor circuits, reduced voltage starters, and control of electro pneumatic devices.

The course is designed for individuals having an electrical background. Prerequisite: ELE199-C ELE220-C Application of PLC’s 6 This course will continue where Programmable Controllers ended. Coverage will include electrical safety, PLC timers, PLC counters, interfacing electro-pneumatic devices, math functions, analog devices, graphical interfaces, industrial networks and Man Machine Interface software. Primary concern will be the application of equipment used in the process control industry. Prerequisite: ELE211-E ELE240-E Advanced PLC Applications 3 This course will focus on instructions and implementation of hardware commonly found in a PLC system. Coverage will include electrical safety, PLC timers, PLC counters, file instructions and program control instructions. Primary concern will be the development of PLC programs and the interfacing of I/O to various field devices found in the automated control industry. This will include electrometrical devices, directional control valves and process control devices. The overall goal of the course is to develop a working knowledge of PLC systems, PLC instructions and how they interface to industrial control field devices. ELE241-E HMI & Motion Control Fundamentals 3 This course will focus on the development and integration of Human Machine Interface (HMI) systems commonly used in conjunction with Programmable Logic Controllers, (PLC’s). Fundamentals of motion control and the equipment commonly used in a PLC controlled process will be presented and implemented throughout the course. Items such as servo motors, servo controllers, variable speed drives, operator interfaces and HMI software are examples of topics that will be covered and applied though out the course. Primary concern will be the application of HMI devices and motion control hardware to PLC systems. ELE270-C Co-Op Internship for IC Wiring 6 Students in the co-op program will use the educational experience gained in the first two semesters at NCC in an internship with an approved co-op station. You will find a position and contract your services for the summer term. With proper documentation and the evaluation of the student by the employer, credits will be given toward an Industrial/ Commercial Wiring Electrical Degree. GPA of 2.0 or above is required. Prerequisites: ELE109-C, ELE161-C
