ECDM2301 | Advanced Topics & Technology | Lecture (3 Credits)

Building on the design theory and labs, in depth analysis of specific electrical design applications, such as residential, medical, data centers, industrial, and other construction. Examine emerging technologies, such as renewable energy and building automation.

Prerequisite(s): ELEC1111, ECDM2101, And ECDM2201

ECDM2302 | Design Capstone | Laboratory (3 Credits)

Integration of all aspects of electrical construction design and management, including drafting, designing, estimating, and managing projects, to create a complete comprehensive capstone project. The capstone project is presented and reviewed by industry experts and leaders, providing valuable feedback from their own experiences.

Prerequisite(s): ECDM2102 And ECDM2202

ECDM2303 | ECDM Co-op/Internship | Directed Study (3 Credits)

The Co-op or Internship course allows students to gain credit for work experience. In either option, students must have faculty approval before registering for this course. The Co-op Track is an educational experience combining academic and career interests with industry experience, offering the opportunity to test career interests, such as design, estimating, or project management. Students are paired with one or two companies over the course of a semester. Through the Co-op Option students are empowered to create a career plan enabling them to make well-informed choices for early career success. The Internship Track is a work experience in a typical company scenario. Students work on real and current projects that allow them to explore the difference in scope and types of work that exist outside the academic classroom.

Prerequisite(s): ECDM2102 And ECDM2203
