Course Description
Students will be able to prepare a set of working drawing of an electromechanical device, utilizing a printed circuit of their own design. In so doing, they will demonstrate their ability to prepare schematic and wiring diagrams, as well as their understanding of the principles and concepts of electronic standardization and miniaturization, including printed and thin-film circuits and wiring harnesses.

Learning Outcomes
Through the Portfolio Assessment process, students will demonstrate that they can appropriately address the following outcomes:

  • Describe and demonstrate the process of lay out and documentation of circuit diagrams.
  • Explain the terminology of electronic drawing and electronic symbology.
  • Demonstrate and explain the theory and practice of reference designators and component sequence numbering.
  • Explain the importance of standards (ASME and ISO) in the modern electronic graphics environment.
  • Identity and create electro-mechanical layout and design factors.
  • Identify and create unit and subassembly design elements.
  • Identify and create assembly drawings of electro-mechanical parts and enclosures.
  • Create dimensioned drawings of electro-mechanical hardware and flat patterns.
