Specialization: This course is useful for the engineer involved with the planning, design, engineering, and/or operation of distribution substations and utility distribution systems. Professional Component: Engineering Science - 25% Engineering Design 75% (Eng Science = math/science required for creative applications; Eng Design = decision making process of devising a system, component or process to meet a desired need) Additional Course Features: This course will include a field trip to a distribution substation. The time and date will be announced as soon as the details are arranged. While participation in the field trip is not mandatory, it is strongly recommended. Although attendance will not be taken (other than the first day of class, per university policy), attendance and participation is strongly suggested to enhance the learning experience for all students. Academic dishonesty of any kind will not be tolerated. If caught cheating, the guilty parties will be subject to AT LEAST failure of the course, up to and possibly including expulsion from the university. DO NOT CHEAT!! Relation of Course to EE Dept. Program Outcomes: Program Outcome “a”: An ability to apply knowledge of basic math, science and engineering. Program Outcome “c”: An ability to design systems, components, or processes to meet desired needs. Program Outcome “e”: An ability to identify, formulate and solve engineering problems. Program Outcome “f”: An understanding of professional and ethical responsibility. Utility Distribution Systems Syllabus
