Course Descriptions

MET 250 - Mechatronics Systems

3 Credits

This course provides hands-on experience in the control, maintenance, and simulation of a mechatronics system in a team environment to promote learning a broad array of job-ready troubleshooting skills in integrated technologies. Topics will include system level programming/troubleshooting, applications and calibration of mechanical drives, electronic sensors, input/output devices. The course includes two class hours and two laboratory hours.

Prerequisites: MET 107, MET 110, ELT 130, and ELT 134, each with a grade of C or higher.

Course Learning Outcomes
1. Combine mechanical and electrical modules together to form an automated production system.
2. Create an input and output (I/O) mapping chart for an integrated system.
3. Create with the ladder diagram for an integrated system.
4. Install Programmable Logic Controls (PLCs) to various integrated modules, including the wiring to I/O module terminals.
5. Construct a function-sequence chart for various mechatronic modules.
