From Our Program, You Will Learn

Workplace Math And Basic Electronics
In this course, participating students will learn how different control systems communicate with instrumentation. We place a strong emphasis on understanding industrial instrumentation in their manufacturing and their processes. Students will set up, configure, and tune various real-world instrumentation and controls. Speed, acceleration, and start/stop sequencing of manufacturing training stations are a part of these settings. Students will learn about the basic math used in the systems and throughout the course. Along with that, the professional instrumentation proficiency of the students would be put to test as is suitable to the course.
Electrical Mechanical System Safety
This course will teach the student about high-speed mechanical and electrical design related to manufacturing, assembly operation, and process control. In addition, this course will teach students the theory of torque, force, speed, pressure, and temperature as it relates to part handling, metal forming, fluid processing, fabricating, inspection/testing, marking, packaging, and chemicals. They will learn about how the safety standards of the electrical and mechanical systems that they will be working within the industrial settings. They will get hands-on training and working knowledge of these systems firsthand.
Mechanical Equipment And Design
Students will learn the original equipment design criteria and specifications for manufacturing machinery. In addition, students will learn to read blueprints, understand cycle-time, design parameters, quality metrics, human interface, machine guards, rotating machine alignment requirements, preventative maintenance, input/output sensors, and control interfaces. In addition, this course will focus on using PLCs to troubleshoot electrical wiring and PLC hardware problems and take corrective action to repair equipment. We emphasize mechatronics and troubleshooting inter-relationships of PLC and robotic systems for maintainability.
Sensors Hardware And PLC Programming
Students will acquire a working knowledge of PLC Programming to perform entry-level work as Manufacturing & Automation Technicians. They can secure employment in a manufacturing and automation company to maintain, repair, troubleshoot, and install equipment in a product or service manufacturing plant operation. Students will learn about more advanced alternating current, electrically actuated hydraulic and pneumatic actuators such as pistons, rotary motors, spool valves, pop-it valves, pressure valves, compressors, incandescent water treatment systems, filters, and other systems used in manufacturing operations.
Hydraulic and Pneumatic Systems
In this course, students will learn how to interface flexible automation devices such as robotics and PLCs so that “hand-shaking” can occur through automation programs. Using contacts, coils, cascading timers, delays, cascading timers, latches, single-shot pulse, starting and stopping a process control, and using PLC Instructions in your programs using binary and hex will be taught. We emphasize mechatronics and troubleshooting inter-relationships of PLC and robotic systems for maintainability. In addition, various logical configurations within PLC systems use actuators. Students will learn how actuators function in manufacturing processes.
Systems Control And Instrumentation
In this course, participating students will learn how different control systems communicate with instrumentation. We place a strong emphasis on understanding industrial instrumentation in their manufacturing and their processes. Students will set up, configure, and tune various real-world instrumentation and controls. Speed, acceleration, and start/stop sequencing of manufacturing training stations are a part of these settings. Students will learn how push buttons, limit switches, photosensors, and common digital output devices including relays, motor starters, and solenoid valves function in the manufacturing processes.
