IMA 100 Introduction to Industrial Maintenance
Provides you with an overall perspective and foundation for the industrial maintenance field. You will be taught the fundamentals of machine operations commonly used in the manufacturing industry. Topics such as general maintenance procedures, consumable supplies, fasteners, and machine operating specifications will be covered. In addition, high emphasis will be placed upon the understanding of machine blueprints which detail all the systems which are part of a functioning machine. You will also be exposed to parts and specification manuals utilized in the repair of industrial machinery. Finally, you will begin to learn the logical process utilized in the diagnosis of broken, worn, and defective.
IMA 120 Pumps, Seals, Rotating Equipment
Explains the theory and operation of various types of pumps and compressors in common use in the process and energy supply industries. Mechanical power transmission systems including direct coupling and v-belt drives will be studied. The principles involved in the operation of centrifugal and positive displacement pumps and compressors will be discussed, along with the function of various components in pumps and compressors, disassembly and reassembly of pumps, compressors and mechanical drives, and troubleshooting pumps and compressors.
IMA 140 Industrial Pipe and Piping Systems
Explains the use of piping standards and specifications, the identification and use of various materials, and material take-offs common to the process and energy supply industry. The installation and repair of industrial pipe systems commonly used in the conveying of gases and fluids will be covered. The course includes manually and automatically operated valves, regulators and other associated components. Students will work with steel, copper, and PVC pipe.
IMA 150 Industrial Problem Solving Methods
Introduces you to individual and team problem solving techniques and methodologies. Techniques for handling complex, multi-faceted system failures are presented. You must demonstrate use of the techniques at both the individual and team level.
IMA 160 Basic Fluid Power
Provides an understanding of the fundamentals of fluid power, hydraulic transmission of force and energy, operation at the suction side of the pump, petroleum based hydraulic fluids, fire resistant hydraulic fluids, flow rates and velocity, properties of hydraulic fluids, and the function and construction of basic elements of a hydraulic or fluid power system. The course will cover hydraulic symbols and prints used in industry.
IMA 210 Vibration Principles I
Introduces the principles and basic techniques of industrial machinery vibration analysis. Successful students will be able to calculate vibration frequency from time domain data; convert vibration units of measure and signal detection; read and interpret basic FFT spectra; recognize various vibration sensors, mounting methods and instrumentation; and compare overall or single value vibration measurements against pre-established alert settings and perform basic FFT signature analysis.
Prerequisite: permission of instructor.
IMA 211 Vibration Principles II
IMA 211 is a continuation of IMA 210 and successful students will be able to select the appropriate machinery vibration measurement technique; maintain a database of results and trends; establish and implement general overall level alarms; set up instruments for the basic resolution of amplitude, frequency and time; perform basic vibration analysis of machinery and components, such as shafts, bearings, gears, fans, pumps and motors, using spectrum analysis. In addition you will be able to classify, interpret and evaluate the test results in accordance with applicable specifications and standards; understand basic single plane balancing concepts; be aware of some causes and effects of bad measurement data; perform basic bump tests to determine natural frequencies and recommend minor corrective actions
Prerequisite: IMA 210 or permission of instructor.
IMA 250 Industrial Machine Lubrication
Provides an understanding of the foundational principles and important considerations involved in properly lubricating industrial machines, including key components such as maintenance strategies, principles of surface protection, lubricant construction; lubricant selection for a variety of components, including rolling element bearings, plain bearings, gear drives, reciprocating engines, hydraulic systems, air compression systems, chains, cables and wire ropes; lubricant condition control; and lubricant storage and handling.
IND 100 Interior Design Fundamentals
Introduces to design elements, principles and theory. Application techniques, emphasizing design relationships and composition will be explored. Basic skills and techniques of both visual and oral presentations will be introduced.
IND 111 Drafting for Interiors
Introduces the basic drafting tools and techniques, graphic references and symbols, use of pencil and technical pen. Student learns to draft floor plans and interior elevations. Course also covers basic interior dimensioning and lettering as well as isometric drawing construction for interior components.
IND 112 Graphics Communication
Teaches methods of communicating interior design plans, elements and ideas in 3-D, through perspective drawing construction and quick sketch techniques, and practice rendering and illustration skills.
Prerequisite: IND 111.
IND 114 Space Planning
Teaches the principles and factors of space planning, and practice the space planning process through residential and light commercial applications. Students are introduced to interior architecture. Use of bubble diagrams and freehand ink presentation techniques are also included.
Prerequisite: IND 111.
IND 231 Sustainable Design
Creates an awareness and understanding of ecological issues while emphasizing the use of environmentally friendly materials and resources that do not compromise the effectiveness of the design. This course also investigates the practice of design to reduce the effects on the environment using renewable materials in the design building for both residential and commercial property. Its emphases are to learn to conserve resources and to reduce the negative Impact on the environment.
