ICS 1103
PROGRAMMING I

This course is designed to give the student an understanding of established and new methodologies using Microsoft Visual Basic programming. Emphasis is placed on developing logical thinking skills.


ICS 1104
FUNDAMENTALS OF ELECTRICITY

This course is an overall study of the fundamental principles of D.C. and A.C. circuits. A basic study of Ohm's Law, series, parallel and series parallel resistor circuits. The fundamental concepts form the basis for the study of advanced applications of electronic systems. It is necessary for the electronic technician to be able to understand the basic concepts to function as an Electronic Technician.


ICS 1123
SEMICONDUCTORS I

This course introduces semiconductors or solid-state components. Topics covered include the diode and applications, transistors, and amplifiers.


ICS 1143
INTRODUCTION TO DIGITAL LOGIC

An introductory course in the study of digital logic systems. Basic digital logic gates, truth tables, numbering systems, and different types of TTL integrated circuits are studied.


ICS 1153
NETWORKING I

Designed as a foundation course that provides the theory and basic understanding of the hardware and software that comes together to build local area and wide area networks.


ICS 1253
NETWORKING II

Prerequisite: ICS 1153. Builds upon the skills and concepts learned in Networking I. Emphasis will be on the hands-on aspects of personal computer networks using Microsoft and Linux based networking products, including installations and/or expanding a networking system and troubleshooting problems.


ICS 1303
PC MAINTENANCE I

This course is designed to prepare individuals to troubleshoot, build, and repair personal computers, workstations, printers, and other computer peripherals. The student will also learn to install, debug, diagnose, and repair software problems associated with PCs.


ICS 2115
PROGRAMMABLE CONTROLLERS

Deals with the subject of programmable controllers (PCs). The PC is a microprocessor-based programmable device used in controlling mechanical machinery, energy management systems, computer integrated manufacturing, and other applications. Lecture: 3 hours, laboratory: 6 hours.


ICS 2116
BASIC INDUSTRIAL AUTOMATION

An illustrated study of circuit configurations used in industry. Topics to be covered are: solid-state systems used to control D.C. and A.C. motors, electro-mechanical devices, three-phase power, open and closed loop motor control, robotic input and output transducers, various instrumentation and process control classes. Lecture: 9 hours, laboratory: 5 hours.


ICS 2123
INDUSTRIAL FLUID POWER

This course is designed to provide the basic knowledge and application of physical principles involving pumps, cylinders, valves, motors, design, assembly, graphic symbols, and the operation of hydraulic and pneumatic control circuits based on logic principles. Lecture: 4 hours, laboratory: 1 hour.


ICS 2203
COMPUTER SYSTEM COMPONENTS

A study of the internal structure of the microprocessor. The full computer system is analyzed from both aspects of hardware and software. Many of the principles studied apply to computer troubleshooting and computer interfacing. Many of the computer support circuits are studied. Many of the skills learned from Programming I, Operating Systems, and Digital Logic are brought together and enhanced.


ICS 2213
SEMICONDUCTORS II

A continuation of ICS 1123, this course is a study of field effect transistors, thristors, and linear integrated circuits.


ICS 2303
PC MAINTENANCE II

Prerequisite: ICS/CIS 1303. This course is designed to teach individuals core elements of computer repair based on the A+ Certification exams. The student will build on the knowledge acquired from PC Maintenance I, allowing them to be more prepared to diagnose, and repair computers in the working environment.
