NAVIT Semester 1 consists of three courses:
MET 100 Manufacturing Fundamentals: Overview of various types of manufacturing and jobs performed in the discrete, hybrid and contiuous sectors within manufacturing and energy production. Provides basic skills and knowledge that any technical employee in manufacturing needs to be successful in the workplace. Prerequisites: Satisfactory placement scores in reading writing and mathematics. Two lecture; three lab.
MET 120 Industrial Mechanics 1:Principles and applications of the most commonly found mechanical drive and fluid power components in industrial power plant and manufacturing environments. Prerequisites: Satisfactory placement scores in reading, writing, and mathematics. Four lecture: three lab.
MET 130 Industrial Electrical Systems:Principles and applications of alternating (AC) and direct (DC) current electricity, industrial sequential control and electrical controls construction found in typical energy and manufacturing environments. Prerequisites: Satisfactory placement scores in reading, writing, and mathematics and MAT112 or MAT121 or any MAT course for which MAT 112 of MAT 121 is a prerequisite. Three lecture; three lab.
Course Work for each class needs to be complete in order to receive credit in each.
MET 150 Industrial Mechanics II: Builds and expands upon Industrial Mechanics I covering principles and applications of additional mechanical drive and fluid power components, troubleshooting and looking at predictive and preventative maintenance techniques.
MET 160 Rotating Electrical Machines: Principles, applications, troubleshooting and maintenance of rotating electrical motors and electronic motor drives used in industry.
NAVIT 3rd Semester consists of three college courses:
MET 140 Introduction to Programmable Logic Controllers: Principles and applications of programmable logic controllers (PLCs) found in typical energy and manufacturing environments.
MET 200 Robotics and Motion Control: Provides background and programming and application of industrial robots and general purpose synchronized multi axis motion control. Expands these concepts by combining multiple axes of motion to perform useful functions such as creating a flexible manufacturing system utilizing robots.
MET 210 Process Control and Instrumentation: Fundamentals of industrial processes and instrumentatin controlling level, flow, temperature and pressure. Provides the maintenance technician with fundamentals for many applications in discrete and hybrid industries such as machining, assembly, food processing and packaging.
MET 220 Advanced Programmable Logic Controllers: Advanced principles and applications of programmable logic controllers (PLC's) in more advanced PLC families than covered in MET 140. Student has option to work with Rockwell/Allen-Bradley ControlLogix or Siemens S7 systems.
MET 230 Integrated Manufacturing Systems: This course guides the student through the processes of interfacing and integrating manufacturing components and unit operations into useful systems.M
MET 238 (ReplacesMET 240) Mechatronics Application Project: This course provides a capstone experience for the Mechatronics Area of Specialization by requiring that the student, together with teammate(s), apply skills and knowledge from each of the program areas to an independent mechatronics project related to consumer goods packaging.
