MANU-1075Automation Systems
More Information

The focus of this course is to help students to build a foundation for basic concepts of an industrial process control system. Upon completion of this course, students will be able to identify and explain the applications of different process instruments, final control elements and motor control devices. They will understand the typical process control loops and loop responses. Basic PLC and HMI programs will be covered. Aspects of designing a process measurement and data acquisition system will be addressed. Various industrial communication protocols will be reviewed, as well as Safety Instrumented System (SIS) standards.

NETW-1000Industrial Cabling
More Information

Upon completion of this course, students will understand aspects of network cabling standards, codes and applications for substations, automation, electrical control, instrumentation, LV power, fire alarms, CCTV, HVAC, Ethernet and antennas. They will understand issues and standards concerning impact and mitigation of environmental factors that affect cables. Electrical factors affecting choice, connection and protection of network cabling will be covered. In labs students will perform termination, installation and testing. Focus will be on the design and practice of structured data cabling in an industrial environment. Students will complete a project that will tie together concepts from the course.

NTWK-1002Industrial Networks 1
More Information

The focus of this course is on learning the fundamentals of networking. This course introduces the architecture, structure, functions, components, and models of the Internet and other computer networks. It uses the OSI and TCP layered models to examine the nature and roles of protocols and services at the application, network, data link, and physical layers.

NTWK-1003Industrial Networks 2
More Information

The focus of this course continues in learning the fundamentals of networking. This course introduces transport reliability, network scaling, redundancy and network uptime. Security and network services topics are investigated with emphasis on access control lists, DHCP, NAT, VPN's and time protocols. Management topics will include SysLog, SNMP, and Netflow.

Prerequisites:
NTWK-1004Industrial Networks 3
More Information

This course introduces the fundamentals of Converged Plantwide Ethernet Industrial Networks (CPwE). Main topics focus on the architecture, structure, functions, components, protocols, and models of the CPwE Network.

Through the Purdue Enterprise Reference Architecture (PERA) layered model, students will examine the nature and roles of protocols and services from the process control levels to the process support levels within an industrial network.

The principles of real time sensing, and control/ response for employee safety as well as process automation will be investigated. High availability through routing, switching and connection redundancy and security will be integrated into the industrial network.


Prerequisites:
NTWK-1005Industrial Networks 4
More Information

This course addresses real time transport fundamentals and hardened wireless implementations of Converged Plantwide Ethernet Industrial Networks. Main topics focus on the Common Industrial Protocol (CIP) motion and synchronization, and IEEE 802.11 industrial wireless.

The principles of real time sensing, within a control/ response automated deterministic network will be investigated with respect to network and control device time synchronization, data transport latency and jitter.

Students will analyze, configure, verify Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP), and Quality of Service (QoS).

Prerequisites:
NTWK-1006Network Security Reg & Stds
More Information

Upon completion of this course students will understand the security standards and regulations for industrial networks. Students will be able to describe risks and mitigation methods associated with various security threats. They will be able to implement electronic access controls. Students will understand best practices for various security domains in the industrial network hierarchy. Students will demonstrate their knowledge in this area by completing assignments.

Prerequisites:
PROJ-1006Research & Design Project
More Information

This is a project-oriented course. In consultation with the instructor the student project team will complete an industrial network design project. Co-operation within the team, including sharing the workload and collaboration, are key objectives. Also, students will learn that planning (cost, time and processes) are critical. After submitting an accepted project proposal, each team will set weekly goals that will allow the project to be completed within the timeframe of the course. Evaluation of the student's project is based on attaining these weekly project goals as well as a written technical report, an oral presentation and a demonstration of the operation of the completed project.

Prerequisites:
PWRS-1002Power Utility Systems
More Information

This course covers the basic principles of power systems and the various components in electrical systems. It explains fundamental concepts such as phasors, active and reactive power, and single-phase vs. three-phase. This course will cover what constitutes an electrical system, how it works, and what the associated components are of a power system and their functionalities. Some of the latest developments in power system structure and management will be described.

SAFE-1100Safety & Regulatory Standards
More Information

Upon completion of this course students will understand the safety requirements of governing codes, standards, and regulations in an industrial network environment. Students will be able to describe the hazards, best practices, failure modes and safety devices used in this environment. Students will complete a research assignment that demonstrates their understanding of the above concepts.
