ELT 2209. Electronics Tech Internship. 3 hrs.

Individual students will be responsible for contacting a local industry to secure an internship position related to electronics repair, manufacturing, or design. The work that the student will perform would be that performed by an entry-level electronics technician. Students must complete 225 hours of on-the-job work experience. Students must contact the internship supervisor before they can register for this course. Prerequisite: Consent of instructor.

ELT 2210. HMI, SCADA & Fiber Optics. 3 hrs.

This course is a continuation of the PLC automation classes utilzing software and hardware to build and use a Human Machine Interface (HMI) and the introduction of the System Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) system. Lecture, 2 hours; lab, 2 hours. Prerequisite: ELE 1204.

ELT 2254. Electrical Capstone. 3 hrs.

This course will give the student the opportunity to apply the knowledge and training obtained in the preceding courses culminating in two capstone projects. One project will be the award winning MIMIC project. One project will be an automation project utlizing a micro-controller or PIC. Assignments will consist of analysis, synthesis, design, flow-charting, programming, and construction of an automation project. Prerequisite: Consent of ELE/ELT Program Coordinator. Lecture, 2 hours; lab, 2 hours.
