Credits: 3

Term: (F)

Prerequisite: M 090 or higher or qualifying placement score within the past 3 years

This course introduces safety rules, concepts, and operating characteristics of direct current (DC) and alternating current (AC) electrical circuits. Selection, inspection, use, and maintenance for common electrical test equipment are also covered.

ETEC 103 AC/DC Electronics II

Credits: 3

Term: (S)

Prerequisite: ETEC 101

This course is a continuation of the AC/DC Electronics I course. Safety rules, concepts, and operating characteristics of electrical circuits will continue to be emphasized. Capacitors, inductors, low voltage power supplies, diodes, transistors, and triodes will be introduced and analyzed.

ETEC 220 ElectricalPower/Distribution I

Credits: 3

Term: (F)

Prerequisite: ETEC 103

This course covers an introduction to the generation of electrical power and moving that power through a local transmission system to a substation where a customer will purchase the generated power. Safely working with components of a high voltage transmission system will also be covered.

ETEC 230 Electric Power/Distribution II

Credits: 3

Term: (S)

Prerequisite: ETEC 220

This course is a continuation of the Electrical Power and Distribution I course. It covers the generation of electrical power and moving that power through a local transmission system to a substation where a customer will purchase the generated power.
