Code 251 - 60 Credits
Complex electrical and electronic control systems that require sophisticated computer programming, monitoring, and diagnostics are an integral part of advanced manufacturing and renewable energy systems. The Industrial Electricity and Electronics core curriculum at Kellogg Community College prepares students to install, maintain, and repair these systems. Students may pursue either a Certificate or an Associate of Applied Science Degree in Industrial Electricity and Electronics.
Modules within the core curriculum cover:
- Control Logix
- Electrical Control Wiring
- Electrical Safety & Machine Safety Controls
- Electrical Theory
- Facility Maintenance
- Industrial Electronics
- Motor Controls
- National Electrical Code® (NEC®)
- Panel View
- Power Distribution Systems
- Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs)
- Rotating Electric Machines
In order to earn an Associate of Applied Science Degree in Industrial Electricity and Electronics students must complete sixty (60) credits. These credits must be taken from three categories: core curriculum, general education electives, and technical electives.
Industrial Trades curricula are offered in a non-traditional, modular format. Module descriptions are not listed in the catalog. For more information about Industrial Trades modules go to the Industrial Trades page at http://www.kellogg.edu/academics/departments/industrial-trades/industrial-electricityelectronics/.
Industrial Trades Orientation
All students interested in taking Industrial Trades modules must complete one or more core curriculum orientation. The orientation is a core curriculum prerequisite. Students will not be able to register for modules until the orientation is completed.
