Electronics: Industrial Systems
Certificate of Completion
In addition to courses in electronics fundamentals, the Industrial Systems curriculum encompasses advanced coursework in industrial electronics, including electronic devices for industrial and motor controls. The curriculum culminates in the study of programmable logic controls (PLCs) using the Allen-Bradley series of PLCs running Windows ladder logic software.
Program Learning Outcomes
- Students will be technically competent.
- Students will be employed or seeking employment in the field or a related field.
- Students will employ polar and/or rectangular notation to determine the magnitude and phase shift of an unknown circuit parameter (voltage, current, impedance, and/or power).
