Industrial Mechanic

10-449-100-00 Industrial Safety Fundamentals
Introduces general safety for a manufacturing environment while raising the awareness of the worker to the hazards around them, and how to best protect themselves while working safely. Students will earn an OSHA 30 card and confined space certificate upon completion. Lecture. 2 credits.

10-462-120-00 Basic Hydraulics for Industrial Mechanic
Exposes the student to the theories and basic components of hydraulics. Basic component construction and operation is explored. The theory of function is supplemented by hands on disassembly and assembly of actual industrial components. Lecture/Lab. 3 credits.

10-462-125-00 Basic Pneumatics for Industrial Mechanic
Exposes the student to the theories and basic components of pneumatics. Basic component construction and operation is explored. The theory of function is supplemented by hands on disassembly and assembly of actual industrial components. Lecture/Lab. 3 credits.

10-462-126-00 Industrial Electronic Concepts
Introduces the student to basics of electricity needs by the industrial mechanic. Included are basic electrical theory, operation and use of the Volt-Ohm meter, AC and DC electric motors, motor controls and wiring, and applications as needed to install, operate, and control industrial machines. Lecture/Lab. 3 credits.

10-462-130-00 Industrial PC Applications
Helps students develop skills in working with PC's to connect to PLC's, update drivers, install software, backup and restore files for PLC systems. Produce basic documents for preventive maintenance, share documents, use remote access and web based tools and locate resources using internet tools. Lecture. 2 credits.

10-462-140-00 Pneumatic Operations for Industrial Mech
Provides the application of basic pneumatic principles into typical industrial circuits. The student will experience exercises with basic pneumatic components and simple air systems and how they are applied in circuits. Vacuum components and air logic systems will be included. Prerequisite: 10-462-125. Lecture/Lab. 2 credits.

10-462-142-00 Hydraulic Operations for Industrial Mech
Provides the application of basic hydraulic principles into typical industrial circuits, and helps develop skills in understanding hydraulic components and their interaction to each other in demonstration circuits. Prerequisite: 10-462-120. Lecture/Lab. 2 credits.

10-462-144-00 Mechanical Concepts
Designed to give the student a basic understanding of the mechanical concepts that are found on industrial equipment. Since all industrial machinery is equipped with some type of mechanical drive, a firm understanding of these drives is necessary for the industrial mechanic. Lecture/Lab. 4 credits.

10-462-146-00 Centrifugal Pump Operations
Designed to give the student understanding and experience with various types of industrial pumps and drive mechanisms. Basic understanding of centrifugal pumps, theory of operation, installation, maintenance and troubleshooting of pumps and their systems. Students will work with Laser Alignment, and advanced linear slides, brakes and clutches. Lecture/Lab. 4 credits.

10-462-154-00 Mechanical Print Reading and Schematics
Allows the student to learn the symbols used in the maintenance industry and to put those symbols into circuits and diagrams. A unit is also given on blueprint reading consisting of basic symbols and reading the dimensions from various blueprints. Lecture. 1 credit.

10-801-195-00 Written Communication
Develops writing skills which include prewriting, drafting, revising, and editing. A variety of writing assignments is designed to help the learner analyze audience and purpose, research and organize ideas, and format and design documents based on subject matter and content. Also develops critical reading and thinking skills through the analysis of a variety of written documents. Lecture. 3 credits.

10-804-107-00 College Mathematics
Designed to review and develop fundamental concepts of mathematics pertinent to the areas of arithmetic and algebra, geometry and trigonometry, probability and statistics. Special emphasis is placed on problem solving, critical thinking and logical reasoning, making connections, and using calculators. Topics include performing arithmetic operations and simplifying algebraic expressions, solving linear equations and inequalities in one variable, solving proportions and incorporating percent applications, manipulating formulas, solving and graphing systems of linear equations and inequalities in two variables, finding areas and volumes of geometric figures, applying similar and congruent triangles, converting measurement within and between U.S. and metric systems, applying the Pythagorean Theorem, solving right and oblique triangles, calculating probabilities, organizing data and interpreting charts, calculating central and spread measures, and summarizing and analyzing data. Recommended: pre-algebra or appropriate placement scores. Lecture/Lab. 3 credits.
