Electro-Mechanical Technologies

Degrees and Certificates


ELMT120L: Fluid Power Systems

Students will be introduced to the fundamentals of hydraulic and pneumatic power system safety, operation, basic circuit connections, and 3, 4, and 5-way cylinder circuit function. Hydraulic power system topics include basic hydraulic circuits, pumps, principles of pressure and flow, speed control, pressure control, sequence and reducing valves. Pneumatic power system coverage includes single acting cylinders, motor circuits, leverage, volume, pressure and flow, air flow resistance, flow control, and flow measurement.

ELMT210L: Mechanical Drive Systems

In this course, students will learn the concepts of mechanical power transmission through the many types of mechanical drive systems in modern machinery. Mechanical power system safety is focused on throughout this course. Topics include machine and electric motor mounting, motor shaft and keyway features, measuring speed, torque, power, and efficiency, mechanical shaft bearing, coupling, and alignment, as well as v-belt, chain, spur gear, and multiple shaft drives.

ELMT270L: Electro-Mechanical Capstone

This course provides the vehicle for students to demonstrate overall competency in advanced manufacturing and in the specific operations in which they have chosen to concentrate under the supervision of a faculty advisor, working individually or as part of a team, the students will select and successfully carry out a major project which pertains directly to electromechanical technologies.

ELMT280L: Electro-Mechanical Internship

This course provides the opportunity for the student to utilize learned course competencies in a real-life setting. A supplemental laboratory experience on an extensive array of equipment and processes may be provided. Resume, cover letter, weekly journal, and employer evaluation are required. Student'92s needs to work a minimum of 300 hours in a manufacturing job related environment.
