Industrial Technology Education (EDIE)
USP Codes are listed in brackets by the 1991 USP code followed by the 2003 USP code (i.e. [M2<>QB]).
1020. Wood Materials and Processes. 3. Permits the student to acquire a technical knowledge about these industrial, nonmetallic fiber materials. Emphasis is placed on their characteristics and the processes that are applied in modifying them for industrial use. Prerequisite: EDIE 1030.
3000 . Machine Tool and Casting Technology. 3. This precision-machining and metals-casting course is designed to advance the student's knowledge of industrially-accepted metal removal practices and foundry techniques. Metals casting and machine tool operations are combined to form the integral part of the laboratory learning experience in conjunction with individually directed research and development in the area of materials and processes. Prerequisite: EDIE 2160 or consent of instructor.
3060 . Industrial Graphics. 3. Prepares pre-service teachers with concepts and knowledge of the application of graphic standards and conventions and of these as communications languages in a variety of industrial applications. It is intended to extend the knowledge and skills of industrial technology teacher education students.
3065 . Construction Graphics. 3. Designed for industrial technology teacher education students to learn designing, construction and functional planning principles, communication conventions, and drafting techniques as related to residential and/or small commercial structures and the construction industry. The purpose is to develop competence in and the concepts of communication processes in the construction industry so that students will be prepared to teach these competencies. Prerequisite: EDIE 3060 or consent of instructor.
3070 . Metallic and Plastics Materials Testing for Teachers. 3. Provides pre-service industrial education students with a broad background in the strength and use of metals and plastics common to industry. The student applies theoretical principles to actual testing situations as well as learn how to teach their future students in this area. In addition, students develop experience in the various processes common to the industrial use of metals and plastics. Prerequisite: EDIE 1030, MATH 1050 or consent of instructor.
3190 . Wood Fabrication Technology. 3. Permits the student to achieve technical specialization. Emphasis is placed on the construction and manufacturing processes that are applied to these nonmetallic fiber materials for the production of components and finished products. Prerequisite: EDIE 1020 or consent of instructor.
3550. Electronic Circuits. 3. A study of DC, AC and transistor circuits. Emphasis on circuit design, construction and testing. Use of common electric equipment for circuit testing.
4050 . Graphics Communications. 3. Designed to give the student a knowledge of and experience in the major concepts of graphic communications: (1) communication, (2) design, (3) image generation, (4) preproduction and production and, (5) binding, finishing and packaging. Prerequisite: EDIE 3050.
4070. Educational Trends in _____. (B) 2 (Max 6). Provides reading, discussion, research and the appraisal of new methods, materials, equipment and experimental programs concerned with the improvement of education as it pertains to the areas of vocational education; agriculture education, home economics education, and trade and industrial education. Each department in the college may make offerings under this number, but the maximum allowable credit for each department is 6 semester hours. Prerequisite: 6 hours of education courses.
4300 . Computer-Aided Drafting. 3. Allows students to develop computer-aided drawings. It is designed primarily for new users of computer-aided drafting, although experienced users will find it to be a class in which additional skills can be developed. Prerequisite: EDIE 2020, 2040 or consent of instructor.
4570. Electronics Communications. 3. Conceptual analysis and applications of analog and digital communications systems. Includes AM, FM, TV, fiber optics and computer communications systems. Prerequisite: EDIE 3550.
4740. Field Studies in Industrial Education. 1-5 (Max. 12). Provides an opportunity for teachers in the field to advance their study of selected topics for the improvement of instruction and/or programs and is offered through extension services. Topics are selected to meet the needs and interests of teachers in the geographical area where the course is to be offered. The instructional method is adapted to the nature of the topic and participants enrolled. Credit in this course is not applicable toward advanced degrees. Prerequisites: 6 semester hours of education courses and/or consent of instructor.
4970. Individual Problems. (B) 1-3 (Max. 6). This course provides flexible credit for seniors who may need credit for graduation, or for advanced students who wish to undertake intensive study of a special problem identified in a regular class. The course is offered in the area of industrial education. Prerequisite: consent of department head.
The program is currently undergoing major revisions. The undergraduate program, except for EDEX 2484 (which is currently required for all education majors), will terminate summer 2005. Beginning fall 2005, certification in special education will be obtained via a post-baccalaureate or Master's degree program (see the Graduate Bulletin for more information).
