Electrical Engineering Technology :: Program Facilities
The Morrisville Electrical Engineering Technology program boasts extensive laboratory facilities, including a circuits and analog electronics lab, a digital circuits lab, a machines and controls lab, a printed circuit facility, a metal chassis fabrication shop, and an industrial soldering station area.
Electrical Engineering Technology students work on a motors and controls trainer.
The program participates in IBM ThinkPad University
, so a laptop computer is integrated into the curriculum. Software specific to the degree includes: the OrCad PSpice, Altera, and Proteus circuit simulation packages, the LabView (virtual lab instrument) graphical programming package, and Metratek's Waveform–Lite oscilloscope display–capture software.
A student works on a control system trainer in the Electrical Engineering Technology Lab.
Additional site licensed–software allows students to interface with a variety of PLCs (programmable logic controllers), PLDs (programmable logic devices), and Intel 8051 and 8052 microprocessors.
Students develop circuit boards under safe lights in the printed circuit facility.
