Technology Course Offerings

TE 103 - Intermediate Technical Mathematics

This course emphasizes the contextualization and applications of mathematics specific to fields of study in manufacturing and trades. This is accomplished through use of examples and exercises explaining the use of math in disciplines such as construction, plumbing, auto mechanics, electronics, CAD/drafting, tool and die and more. Areas of study incorporate fractions, Scientific notation, percentages, ratios, proportions, direct and inverse variation, formulas and their transpositions, linear systems and equations, and quadratic equations.
Course Fee: None (Tuition Rates & Fees)

 

TE 104 - Advanced Technical Mathematics

This course uses extensive applications to represent mathematical operations used in various fields including plumbing, HVAC, welding, manufacturing and design, electronics, construction, and mechanics. Examples and exercises explicitly involve applications in these areas for conversion of measurement units, significant figures, applied geometry, trigonometric functions of right and oblique triangles, charts, graphs, basic statistical calculations and formulas.
Course Fee: None (Tuition Rates & Fees)

 

TE 114 - Material Science

This course is a study of chemical and physical properties of materials typically used in industrial applications. The various types and levels of strength for the materials are emphasized. Reporting experimental procedures and results for the strength testing is the main focus of the lab.
Course Fee: $5 (Tuition Rates & Fees)

 

TE 272 - Industrial Safety

Students learn accepted good practice in safety and its application to technology. Included are safety laws, personal protective equipment, tool safety; chemical, electrical, fire, materials handling, and machine safety; lifting and elevated working procedures; machine guarding, as well as current health-related concerns.
Course Fee: $5 (Tuition Rates & Fees)

 

TE 282 - Manufacturing & Technology Internship

This course is designed for students who are seeking an internship experience in a job-related field. Students participate in a paid work experience involving an area employer to practice job skills and increase employability. They will work a minimum of 12 hours per week under supervision at an approved place of employment. The instructor monitors the students overall performance. There is an orientation meeting at the beginning of the semester. Students are responsible for identifying their own internship site. A list of potential internship sites will be made available by the department.
