Mechanical Technologies (MT)



Instruction emphasizes developing technical competence and utilizes computer-aided drawing (CAD). With additional studies, this pathway can also lead to careers in Mechanical Engineering Technology.

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

Engineering Sciences

ESC 174: Computing with LabVIEW

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. Students take the three level courses over three years.

Mechanical Technologies

MET 101: Material Science

This course general introduction to engineering materials used in design and manufacturing. Topics include mechanical, physical, and chemical properties of ferrous and non-ferrous metals, plastics, ceramics, glass, and composites. The course will cover material sources, formation and production. Emphasis is on material selection for mechanical design purposes based on material properties and manufacturability. The course will cover different aspects of material testing and field trips to local material testing labs as permitted.

MET 106: Engineering Drawing II

Advanced techniques for creating, viewing, and plotting 2D and 3D CAD drawings will be presented. Lectures, demonstrations, and labs in a variety of applications will enhance the student’s CAD ability and professional development. Topics include attributes; drawing views, assembly drawings, threads and fasteners, dimensioning, tolerances, bearings and shafts, and the design process. Students will use parametric solid modeling software.

Technology

TECH 116: Intro to Emerging Technologies

The purpose of this "First Year Seminar" course is to introduce students to the emerging technologies careers as observed at site visits of area high technology businesses, and made tangible in classroom through hands on-experiences with tools (LabVIEW) and techniques used in the curriculum. Students will practice industry recommended soft-skills such as communication and team work. Students will learn how other courses including mathematics and physics are crucial for the AAS Instrumentation and Control Technologies degree program. Students will learn to articulate the relevance of the curriculum for local and regional economic development based on high technologies.

TECH 122: Electronic Theory I (as a co-requisite with Alg II)

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. Students take the three level courses over three years.

Mathematics for MT

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.

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.

PHY 118: College Physics I

Course leading to NYS Regents Examination; Required for Regents Diploma/Graduation

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.
