Program Outcomes

At the completion of the program, graduates will be able to:

  • Conduct simple mechanical repairs on typical electromechanical systems, from replacing wiring, electromechanical devices, and other items that are original to the equipment, to installing new system modifications, then returning the system to operational specifications.
  • Diagnose electronic system problems using appropriate test instrumentation, schematics, technical reference manuals, and determine if fault is electrical, electronic, software, or mechanical in nature. Recommend appropriate repair process and initiate repair.
  • Utilize various computer software found in industry: Visio, Visual Basic, HMI programs, PLC programming, Microsoft office applications used for documentation, repair, and modification of equipment.
  • Repair electrical and electronic systems, from devices, subsystems, wiring/cabling to circuit board level and return equipment to correct operation.
  • Integrate electro/mechanical equipment into electronic and computer controlled systems. This equipment includes: discrete devices, PLCs, sensors, application programming, communication hardware/software and computer related hardware.
  • Design, construct, program, and implement a proper operating SCADA system utilizing a smart metering system.
