Degrees and Certificates
INDM102W: Industrial Tools and Workplace Safety
Industrial Tools and Workplace Safety covers workplace safety, hazard identification, and safe use of common hand tools used by industrial mechanics. It likewise covers proper maintenance and storage of these tools. The course teaches how to work safely with power tools, ladders, and scaffolds, and covers fall prevention and protection equipment. It introduces Foreign Material Exclusion (FME), as well.
INDM104W: Industrial Welding and Cutting Operations
Industrial Welding and Cutting Operations uses a mixture of theory classes and practical laboratory exercises to safely teach students the basics of industrial arc welding and industrial cutting. Students practice all-position welding on carbon steel using various processes, such as shielded metal arc welding (SMAW), gas metal arc welding (GMAW), and flux core arc welding (FCAW) with electrodes commonly used in industry. The industrial cutting operations include plasma arc cutting and gouging, carbon arc gouging, oxy-fuel cutting and gouging, and saw cutting. The course places special emphasis on cutting safety and on techniques specific to industrial settings, including the removal of nuts from bolts by gouging. This course prepares students for Advanced Industrial Welding Processes.
INDM106W: Introduction to Industrial Mechanics
Introduction to Industrial Mechanics uses both a classroom and hands-on approach. Students learn about reading and using measuring tools, testing tools, applying different fastening methods, and performing precision measurements. They learn about lubrication and the process of rigging/hoisting. Students apply their knowledge in the laboratory to install, replace, and inspect bearings, flexible drives, mechanical drives, and couplings.
INDM109W: Safety in Industry
INDM122W: Reading Mechanical Prints I
INDM124W: Industrial Math
INDM226W: Mechanical Systems
In Mechanical Systems, students learn how to measure components and parts accurately using precision measuring tools, including rules, protractors, calipers, and micrometers. Students use these tools while learning basic machining processes. They also learn about vibration, alignment, electrical principles and applications, hydraulic principals and applications, pneumatic principals and applications, and preventative maintenance programs.
INDM228W: Advanced Industrial Welding Processes
Advanced Industrial Welding Processes provides students with the skills needed to successfully complete the American Welding Society D 1.5 unlimited thickness structural steel test using E7018 Shielded Metal Arc Welding in the 3G and 4G positions. The course also introduces students to Gas Tungsten Arc Welding utilizing a mixture of theory and hands-on application. Students safely practice all-position welding with carbon-steel and stainless-steel filler metals commonly used in industrial settings. The course introduces other industrial welding processes, as well. Students continue to practice proper industrial workplace safety procedures.
