100 Introduction to Computer Information Technology (1 cr.)
Manufacturing practices and the various issues related to the application of computer integrated manufacturing will be explored. Key areas of discussion will include the definition of CIM, the MFET plan of study and industrial case studies related to CIM implementation.
243 Automated Manufacturing I (Class 2, Lab 2, 3 cr.) P: ECET 214 and CPT 175 or CSCI C201; or consent of instructor.
The application of industrial control components (relays, motor starters, etc.) and programmable logic controllers (PLCs) in both discrete and continuous automated manufacturing environments. The theory of operation and selection of common industrial control components is explored. Students learn to design, program, and troubleshoot PLC systems. An introduction to closed loop control systems is included.
244 Automated Manufacturing II (Class 2, Lab 2, 3 cr.) P: MET 242 or consent of instructor.
Shop floor components of computer-integrated manufacturing are introduced. Emphasis is focused on current applications and programming practices of various computer automated manufacturing processes and technologies. Topics include: CAD/CAM integration, computer-assisted numerical control programming, computer-assisted quality control, and automatic identification.
248 Automated Manufacturing III (Class 2, Lab 2, 3 cr.) P: CMIT 243 or consent of instructor.
Industrial robots and general motion control systems as they apply to the automated manufacturing environment will be addressed in this course. Topics include: robot classifications and programming, end-of-arm tooling, operation simulation, safety considerations, and an introduction to robot vision systems and sensors. Students are introduced to general motion control through the application and use of stepper motor technology, servo motor technology, and feedback devices.
300 Applications of Automation In Manufacturing I (Class 2, Lab 2, 3 cr.) P: ECET 214 and MET 242; or consent of instructor.
Basic introduction to automation applications in manufacturing and the impact of computer-based systems on a manufacturing company. Coverage includes practices and the various issues related to the application of computer-integrated manufacturing. Emphasis placed on CAD, CAM, CNC, robotics, industrial control elements, PLCs, and computer-based process controls. Does not carry credit toward graduation in MFET.
Most academic programs require a working knowledge of algebra. OLS courses previously carried the SPV prefix. CGT department courses previously carried the TG (Technical Graphics) prefix Following each course number and title, the number of hours of credit given for each course is indicated in parentheses. These abbreviations are also used in the descriptions: Abbreviations:
"Recit." refers to a problem-solving, Recitation session. "P" refers to the course Prerequisite(s) (other courses that must be successfully completed prior to enrollment). "C" refers to the course Corequisite(s) (other courses which must be enrolled in during the same academic sessions). "R" refers to course Recommendation(s) prior to enrollment, but are not necessary for enrollment.
