Course Information and Descriptions
EDU 299 Special Topics in Education (Variable)
1-3 Hours
Special topics in the field of education will be developed. Topics will
focus on a specific current issue in the areas of early childhood,
elementary, secondary, or special education. A maximum of 6 credit
hours of EDU 299 or ECE 299 may be used as elective credit toward
an AA or AAS degree in education.
Prerequisite: College Reading and Writing Readiness
May be taken four times, but any topic only once
EDU 999
Preparing for the TAP or
ACT+Writing (Variable)
1-3 Hours
This course is designed to prepare prospective teachers to take and
pass the Test of Academic Proficiency (TAP) by refreshing or
improving skills and abilities in Reading, Writing, and Mathematics.
This course is repeatable up to three times, any topic only once, for a
maximum of 3 hours toward degree completion. This course will
also prepare students who wish to take the ACT plus writing test, as
an alternative to the TAP.
Prerequisite: College Reading and Writing Readiness and Basic
Algebra Readiness OR Consent of Department
Recommended: ENG 121 and MTH 121 (both C or better)
May be taken three times, but any topic only once

Solid State Electronics (3-2)
4 Hours
This course is an introduction to semiconductor devices and their
applications. Operating principles and characteristics of diodes,
transistors, JFETS, MOSFETs and thyristors are discussed.
Transistor models using the h and r parameters are covered. Various
transistor configurations and biasing techniques are studied. Device
functionality and applications are discussed and range from power
supplies, voltage regulators, small signal/power amplifiers, amplifier
response analysis (Bode Plot) to operational amplifiers.

EET 115
Electronic Laboratory Techniques (1-2)
2 Hours
An introduction to electronic measurement techniques, the
identification and testing of electronic components, and Ohm’s law
and power law. Lab safety concepts, proper use of basic laboratory
equipment such as oscilloscopes, DMM, power supplies, frequency
counter and signal generators are introduced. Additional topics
include: soldering and desoldering of components, breadboarding,
how to keep a lab notebook and schematic reading. The student will
be expected to pursue and complete a laboratory project of his/her
choice with the instructor’s approval.
