Cooperative Work Experience

A coordinated industrial work experience for selected students enrolled in the Drafting and Design and Computer Engineering Technology curricula. Enrollees will be under the supervision of the College and the participating company. Written reports will be required, and a performance appraisal of the student will be made by the College and the employer. Students will meet as a class one hour per week.

Independent Study

Courses may be repeated for additional credit. An opportunity for the interested student with a good scholastic record to pursue independently the study of some subject under the direction of a member(s) of the faculty. Subjects are chosen and arrangements made to suit the needs of individual students.

Material Science

This course is intended to introduce the student to the materials used in engineering/ industry and their properties. The types of material studied will include ferrous and nonferrous metals, plastics, rubber, ceramics, glass, and cement. In addition, material inspection, testing, and the effects of heat treatment and corrosion will be studied. Laboratory experiences will include the testing and inspection of materials.

Statics and Strengths of Materials

This course is a study of the force systems which act on an object at rest and the behavior of materials when placed under loads and restraints. Topics will include calculating centers of gravity and moments of inertia; predicting the effect of forces applied in tension, compression, shear, and torsion on riveted and welded joints; and developing bending moment diagrams for beams and columns. Laboratory experiences will focus on the methods of material testing. [48-16-64]
