Instrumentation and Control Technologies (ICT)



Students will learn techniques of automated data acquisition, motion control, and machine vision using LabVIEW software and other industry-based technologies. They will also learn mechatronic skills crucial for automation and robotics such as use of microcontrollers and PLCs.

For courses that are prerequisites there will be a requirement of a C or 73% equivalent in order to progress in the sequence.

FLCC's Course Description

TECH 116: Intro to Emerging Technologies

The purpose of this course is to introduce students to emerging technology careers as observed at site visits of local high-technology businesses, and made tangible in classroom through hands-on experiences with tools and techniques used in the curriculum. Students will also learn about and practice employability skills. Using business visits, Industry Challenges, Career Mentoring Days and mentoring, students begin to match their interests and aptitudes to career options. To prepare for transition into career, they will focus on using employment information effectively, acquiring and improving job-seeking and interview skills, compose job applications and resumes, and learn the skills needed to remain in and advance within the workplace. Students will prepare a professional portfolio as a product of the course.

TECH 123: Digital Electronics

Tech Core 1 Tech Core 2 and Tech Core 3:

These courses combines topics covered in four FLCC courses: Electronic Theory (an algebra based circuit analysis course), Digital Electronics (which focuses on the theory and application of digital devices and circuits), Engineering Graphics, and Computing with LabVIEW (a computational course) focused on developing and implementing algorithms for monitoring and control of engineering systems using LabVIEW software.

FLCC'S COURSE DESCRIPTION

Mathematics for ICT

MAT 145: College Algebra

This course is directed towards the student learning algebraic concepts necessary to enter into Pre-Calculus (MAT 152). Topics included in this course are the concept of a function, linear, quadratic, polynomial and trigonometric functions, average rate of change, solving quadratic equations, properties of exponents, systems of equations, right triangle trigonometry and trigonometry on general triangles. Solutions to equations and inequalities will be found numerically, algebraically, and graphically. Throughout the course, applications are emphasized as a reason for learning algebra. This course carries SUNY General Education Mathematics credit.

MAT 152: Pre-Calculus

A continuation of the concept of functions learned in College Algebra expanding to exponential, logarithmic, polynomial, and rational functions. In addition, topics for consideration include transformations, composition, inverse functions, and trigonometric functions. This course provides in depth study of a variety of functions, solving equations and applications of functions. Moreover the course provides a bridge to the beginning groundwork of Calculus with the study of rates of change, extrema, and concavity. Graphing calculator required. Prerequisite: MAT 145 or Placement into Math Level 3 This course carries SUNY General Education Mathematics credit.

Sciences for ICT

PHY 118: College Physics I

First semester of a two-course sequence suitable for transfer students seeking a laboratory science elective, life science students and those in the engineering technologies. This course is a t the mathematical level of intermediate algebra and trigonometry. Topics include motion in one and two dimensions, force laws, energy, momentum, conservation principles, gravity, and rotational motion. PHY 101 or high school Physics is strongly recommended. Prerequisite: MAT 145 with a grade of 'C' or better or placement into Math Level 3 or higher. This course carries SUNY General Education Natural Sciences credit.
