Prerequisite: Reading Proficiency.
EE 121. Fundamentals of Digital Electronics. 3 Credit Hours.
This course is an introduction to Digital Electronics. Students will learn basic lab safety, electron theory, Ohm's and Kirchoff's Laws, logic, number systems, binary addition and Boolean Expression applications. Students will design, construct, troubleshoot and evaluate design problems, and will present oral reports of their results. Students will also study PLDs, Flip-Flops, microprocessors, and shift registers and counters.
Prerequisites: GE 121 or department approval.
EE 130. Electric Circuits I. 4 Credit Hours.
This course emphasizes basic DC circuit configurations, components, and calculations. Content continues with introductory AC circuits and calculations, oscilloscope overview, and transformers. Laboratory experiments reinforce topics. Troubleshooting concepts are addressed along with the theory content. Additional lab hours required.
Prerequisites: MTH 140 or equivalent placement test scores or department approval and Reading Proficiency.
EE 131. Electric Circuits II. 4 Credit Hours.
This course emphasizes AC circuit components, configurations, and characteristics. Content includes circuit theorems, AC quantities and calculations, component characteristics, circuit analysis and applications. Hands-on laboratory experiments coincide with classroom topics. Troubleshooting concepts will be continually addressed along with the theory content. Additional lab hours required.
Prerequisites: EE 130, MTH 170 or MTH 185, and Reading Proficiency.
EE 132. Electronic Devices. 5 Credit Hours.
This course introduces theory, characteristics and applications of most of the basic electronic devices used in industry. Basic practical circuits will be presented to reinforce the theory. Additional lab hours required.
Prerequisites: Prior or concurrent enrollment in EE 131 and Reading Proficiency.
EE 233. Digital Logic. 4 Credit Hours.
Digital computer fundamentals from the systems and circuit approach and an introduction to the basic theory of analog computers. Additional lab hours required.
Prerequisites: EE 130 or departmental approval and Reading Proficiency.
EE 235. Electronic Communications. 4 Credit Hours.

Prerequisites: EE 132 and Reading Proficiency.
EE 236. PLC/Programmable Logic Controller. 3 Credit Hours.
This course presents the fundamentals of ladder logic (formerly relay logic) used in modern industrial controllers. Basic elements such as timers, counters, and sequencers are studied, as well as traditional methods of applying them to machine control. Students will program and perform laboratory experiments with programmable logic controllers, using the Allen Bradley SLC 500 family and the Micrologic series, with an introduction to control logic. Additional lab hours required.
Prerequisites: GE 101 or EE 233 or ME 140 or department approval and Reading Proficiency.
EE 242. Introduction to Microprocessors. 3 Credit Hours.
This course will focus on the structure of a microcomputer input/output central processor and control units, memory programming techniques, logic circuits and arithmetic operations. Additional lab hours required.
Prerequisites: EE 130 or department approval and Reading Proficiency.
EE 260. Electronic Project Design and Fabrication. 3 Credit Hours.
This course provides techniques in safety precautions, use of laboratory equipment and component familiarization. Students receive experience in soldering techniques, chassis fabrication such as bending, drilling and punching, wiring, harnessing, and general shop practice. This course also provides the student with specialized training in printed circuit board layout and production procedures. Students are required to select a project which must be assembled on PCB, tested for proper operation, and mounted in an appropriate housing. Students must submit the completed project with documentation of the fabrication procedures for final grade assignment. Additional lab hours required.
Prerequisites: EE 132 or EE 208, EGR 104 and Reading Proficiency.
