ELECTROMECHANICAL TECHNICIAN

Electromechanical Technician Certificate Program

The Electromechanical Technician Certificate program provides a complete introduction to electronics and electromechanical systems. This program is often of interest to people who want to study electronics with an emphasis on mechanical systems, for example someone coming from a millwright background. The program covers mechanical topics outside of a typical electronics program, like industrial control devices, DC and AC motors and control circuits, transformers, analog and digital transducers, industrial process control and PLCs.

Similar to the Electronics program, the Electromechanical program integrates the CircuitLogix and 3DLab simulators for laboratory exercises.

Program Description

The Electromechanical Technician Certificate, like the Electronics Certificate allows the student to work and complete the computer based program at their own pace. The Electromechanical Technician program is divided into 24 modules and similar to  the Electronics Technician Certificate program, contains text, animations, mini audio lectures, illustrations, review questions, over 450 pre-built lab projects and practice exams. Six modules extend its coverage into mechanical systems.

Simulation software that converts your computer into an Electronics lab

3DLab Circuit Simulation

The 3DLab simulator is introduced early into the content of the program to help students visualize basic electronic circuits and to begin to interact directly with them, just like in a real lab. Animations of the lab simulations supplement the working labs to create a multimedia environment that is very engaging and allows students to virtually step into the laboratory and circuit they are working on.

CircuitLogix Circuit Simulation

CircuitLogix is a powerful, yet easy to use schematic capture and circuit simulation tool which includes over 4,000 device models, and eight virtual instruments. The schematic capabilities enable students to draw any electronics circuit and create a netlist for PCB design tools and autorouters. Students can easily build an analog or digital circuit schematic, attach test instruments and run the simulator to see how the circuit functions. It can perform a live, free running simulation of the digital portion of a circuit and also perform analog and mixed analog/digital simulations based on Berkeley SPICE (Simulation Program with Integrated Circuit Emphasis) and XSPICE.
Using CircuitLogix, students have the freedom to try all the ”what-if” scenarios they can imagine – changing parts or component values, then re-running the simulations to see how changes affect the circuits operations and performance.

Additional Online Program Resources

To enhance the program and provide supplemental learning the Online Student Resource Center offers additional resources including alternative content,  examples, exercises, tutorial videos, student tutorial forums and the online exam center.
