ELT-295 - AC/DC FUNDAMENTALS

Lecture: 1

Lab: 2

Credit: 2

This course introduces students to the components used in most electronic circuits and how they are measured, tested and function. Students will learn the fundamentals of AC and DC electrical systems used for power and control in industrial applications. Students will learn how to operate, install, design and troubleshoot basic AC and DC electrical circuits.

MAT-702 - INTRODUCTION TO MATH APPLICATIONS

Lecture: 2

Lab: 2

Credit: 3

This course is offered to students who can profit from an applied course in mathematics and will prepare students who need to develop skills for MAT-704. It is designed as an introductory level algebra course recommended for students with one year of high school algebra. Emphasis is on the building of basic algebra skills and the application of these mathematical techniques. The course studies the relationship of geometry and algebra as they apply to various fields. This course will also cover whole numbers/decimals, integers, fractions/percents, direct measurement, basic geometric concepts/relationships, linear equations, and right-triangle trigonometry. Prerequisite:MAT-052 or meet minimum placement test requirement.
