127 Course Descriptions Engineering ______________________________________________________ EGR400-E Introduction to Engineering Design 3 Introduction to Engineering Design uses a design development process while enriching problem solving skills: students create and analyze models using specialized computer software. EGR410-E Principles of Engineering 3 Principles Of Engineering explores technology systems and manufacturing processes; addresses the social and political consequences of technological change. EGR420-E PLTW-Digital Electronics 3 Digital Electronics teaches applied logic through work with electronic circuitry, which students also construct and test for functionality. EGR440-E PLTW-Biotechnical Engineering 3 Biotechnical Engineering hones more advanced skills in biology, physics, technology, and mathematics and applies them to real-world biotech fields. EGR450-E PLTW-Computer Integrated Manu 3 Computer Integrated Manufacturing enhances computer modeling skills by applying principles of robotics and automation to the creation of models of three-dimensional designs. Prerequisite: EGR400-A EGR460-E PLTW-Civil Engineering and Architecture 3 Civil Engineering and Architecture introduces students to the interdependent fields of civil engineering and architecture; students learn project planning, site planning, and building design. EGR470-E Engineering Design and Develop 3 Engineering Design and Development is a research course that requires students to formulate the solution to an openended engineering question. With a community mentor and skills gained in their previous courses, students create written reports on their applications, defend the reports, and submit them to a panel of outside reviewers at the end of the school year. Prerequisites: EGR400-E, EGR450-E EGT103-E Principles of Engineering Design 3 Principles Of Engineering explores technology systems and manufacturing processes; addresses the social and political consequences of technological change. EGT106-E Explorations in Technology 2 Explorations in Technology is designed around the essential under-standing that Technology is a reaction to problems and opportunities. Students will learn that technological systems are made up of many parts that require the utilization of human innovation and that each one of us affects the course of technological history. The problem solving and design process will also be introduced with special emphasis on the testing, evaluation, and communication of de-sign solutions. The course is organized into four assessment areas that will develop students knowledge, skills, and disposition necessary to complete the course. EGT108-E Principles of Engineering 3 This course uses a design development process while enriching problem-solving skills; students create and analyze models using specialized computer software. EGT801-E Internship 6 Students in the Internship program will use the educational experience gained in the first two semesters and summer term at NCC in an internship with an approved employer in one of the following disciplines. Installation, testing, maintenance, troubleshooting, programming or calibration of automated industrial control systems. You will find a position and contract your services for 42 days in the fall semester of your second year. With proper documentation and the evaluation of the student by the employer and instructor, credits will be given toward an Industrial Instrumentation & Control degree. A minimum GPA of 2.0 or above is required to participate in the Internship. Student must have a valid driver’s license and maintain that valid status for this course. Prerequisites: ELT225-E, ELT329-E, ELT550-E, SDV135-C Electrical Technology ______________________________________________________ ELE108-C Residential Blueprint Reading 4 Residential Blueprint Reading introduces you to circuitry requirements, materials, drawings, and wiring methods employed in residential wiring. Emphasis is placed on reading blueprints, proper use of drafting tools, drawing residential electrical blueprints, load calculation, materials selection, and takeoff for bidding. Corequisite: ELE160-C ELE109-C Commercial Blueprint Reading 4 This course is designed to familiarize you with commercial blueprint reading, layout of electrical systems, and site work. Areas of study are services, appliance circuits, feeders, emergency power systems, over-current protection, and electric heat. Prerequisites: ELE108-C, ELE150-C ELE120-E Fundamentals of Electricity-DC 4 Using both classroom and lab experiments, this course guides you through the fundamental concepts of direct current (DC) electrical circuitry. The principles of electron flow build from simple DC circuits to complex networks through lecture, video, lab experiments, and computer programs. Mathematics plays a very important role in the solution of circuitry problems and is developed throughout the course from simplistic concepts to more complex processes such as simultaneous equations. ELE121-E Fundamentals of Electricity-AC 4 The fundamental concepts of alternating current (AC) will be explored in theory and in application using lecture, video, lab experiments, and computer models. You will conduct an in-depth study of the actions and reactions of AC on various components of electronic and power circuits. Prerequisite: ELE120-E ELE150-C National Electric Code 2 Study of the electrical industry standards begins with development of terminology, then moves to building upon your developing experience to form proper interpretations of the National Electrical Code (NEC) as it pertains to residential wiring methods.
