Engineering Technology Simulations from EICC added to the NCLOR

Engineering-Technology_logoToday, 124 resources in the Eastern Iowa Community Colleges (EICC) Engineering Technology Simulations series was added to the open educational resources collection of the NCLOR. The EICC Engineering Tech. Simulations content is a segment of a Department of Labor grant awarded to the EICC of Clinton, Muscatine, and Scott. The need for skilled engineering technology technicians is the driving force behind this project. Demand for engineering technology graduates remains high. This project seeks to meet this demand and provide a unique approach to learning about engineering technology.

The engineering technology topics cover in this series are: AC  &  DC Circuit Analysis,  Digital Circuits & Systems,  Electrical Motor Control & Power,  Fluid Power Control,  Fluid Power Design/Application,  Fluid Power Fundamentals,  Industrial Print Reading,  Industrial Robotics,  Lean Manufacturing,  Microcontrollers,  Motion Control,  Motors & Drives,  Physics Fundamentals,  Process Control,  Programmable Logic Controllers,  and Solid States & Systems.

These 3D simulations, are approximately from 2-9 minutes long are used as part of EICC curriculum to help students quickly and thoroughly grasp the concepts being presented in a visual format.

Each simulation is created with the help of a real engineering instructor. The concepts are designed with students in mind. See the creation process for more information.

Each simulation can be embedded into your online courses or used in the classroom. Use, Modify, or Share for free under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License.

The NCCCS courses that these resource may supplement are: ATR282, BPR115, BUS3000, CET121, EGR210, EGR212, ELC111, ELC112, ELC117, ELC130, ELC131, ELC133, ELC139, ELC228, ELC234, ELN135, ELN137, ELN231, ELN260, FUR219, HYD110, HYD121, HYD180, ISC220, ISC3119, MAC132, MEC265, MNT130, MNT250, PCI150, PCI262, PCI264, PHY080, PHY090, PHY101, and PHY102.
