Curriculum or Course Improvement

 Permanent link

Any Course suggestions for improvement of the course or the program are to be discussed here. 


I like the idea of the certificates for those that finish a section of the tech programs. It should help them if they change employers.

Carl and I were discussing the material in the residential Wiring Class has a vast amount of material, to where it could be spread into three classes for the degree/certificate. This will even help placing the curriculum into modules for onsite training if needed. We were recommending to have a NEC code class, which would be a prerequisite to Residential Wiring I and Residential Wiring II. Also there would be room to expand this even further to accommodate the the commercial wiring side of the house. As with the aging technicians of today, this field is expected to grow in the future , so we should stay abreast and keep in pace.

Any thoughts anybody.

Seeing how we are looking to prepare the graduate to better meet the needs of industry, I recommend to replace the courses of DOS and Computer Repair with Hydraulics, Pneumatics and Codes class. I am in the computer repair class now and do not really see a need or benefit of taking this class. I ask the people in industry as well if this a requirement to have knowledge on DOS and how to rebuild a computer. I think the AAS degree would benefit more with a NEC standards, hydraulics and pneumatics because more electronics are integrated in these systems in industry.
