Course Descriptions

IND 100 Industrial Safety & Manufacturing Processes: CPT 1 & 3   3-0-3
This course will have two main areas of emphasis: Safety and Manufacturing Principles. The safety emphasis includes safety organization, fire safety, materials handling, federal regulations, and current issues in industrial safety. The student will receive an OSHA 10 Card if they successfully complete the requirements. The course will also introduce the student to the manufacturing industry including industrial terminology; lean manufacturing; material processes; Six Sigma; supply chain management; and design, engineering, and quality management systems including the concepts of the Toyota Production System. Students will also participate in job shadowing experiences with local industries. Upon successful completion of this course, the student can be certified in Module 1 Safety, and Module 3 Manufacturing Processes and Production, with the nationallyrecognized Manufacturing Skill Standards Council Certified Production Technician (CPT) certificate. The student can receive the full CPT certification upon successful completion of IND100, IND101, and AMD110. (FA)

IND 101 Fundamentals of Industrial Maintenance: CPT 4   2-2-3
This course provides a basic survey of industrial and preventive maintenance concepts and practices used by industrial maintenance mechanics in the installation, troubleshooting, and repair of mechanical systems and machines found in industry. Topics include mechanics’ tools, practices, and safety; basic types; operating concepts and principles of mechanical equipment and systems-gears, bearings, seals, mechanical drive systems; and basic fluid power. Course includes selection and use of proper lubricants by application, mechanical troubleshooting, and methods of scheduling preventive maintenance. Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be certified in Module 4, Maintenance Awareness, with the nationally-recognized Manufacturing Skill Standards Council Certified Production Technician certificate. The student can receive the full Certified Production Technician (CPT) certificate upon successful completion of IND100, IND101, and AMD110. (FA)

IND 105 Fluid Power Principles 2-2-3
This course addresses the practical application of fluid power principles used in the installation, maintenance, and troubleshooting of industrial hydraulic and pneumatic systems and equipment. Topics include basic hydraulic and pneumatic principles and theory, identification of systems components and equipment, interpretation of fluid power symbols and drawings, and the application of fluid power knowledge and skills to industrial maintenance and troubleshooting.

IND 120 Technical Report Writing 3-0-3
IND120 covers techniques of collecting and presenting scientific data for formal and informal reports. Technical papers are studied, and presentation skills are developed. Prerequisite: Eligible placement score.

IND 200 Mechanical Systems 2-2-3
This course will provide the student with a basic understanding of mechanical systems found in industrial and manufacturing facilities. Topics will include troubleshooting, maintenance, and repair of these systems, along with preventive maintenance techniques. Emphasis will be on motor and drive systems such as belts, pulleys, chains, gears, and various coupling components. Common mechanical linkages will also be discussed. Hands-on labs will cover various mechanical systems and allow the student to develop related skills. Prerequisite: IND101 or instructor approval. (FA)

IND 295 Industrial Technology Internship 0-(6-18)-(2-6)
This course is designed to provide students real-life work experiences through on-thejob training with a field-related cooperating employer in the student’s declared major. Students will be supervised by the business/industry sponsor and report to the Director of Career and Technical Programs or assigned faculty member. The position may be paid or unpaid. Students must complete a minimum of 45 contact hours per credit hour per semester. Course is variable credits and may be repeated for up to six credit hours. Prerequisites: Minimum of 30 credit hours, with at least 18 credits of core classes in the program area, 2.50 GPA, and/or approval from the Dean of Workforce Development and Technical Education or Director of Career and Technical Programs.

IND 299 Special Studies in Industrial Technology (1 to 6)-0-(1 to 6)
This course will consist of specialized study in areas of the department, which are not covered in-depth in courses already offered. Students may take no more than six credit hours of special studies in any one discipline. (IN)
