On-campus observation sessions may be held. Duplicate credit not granted for ASTR 116HC. Pass/No Pass/Letter Grade Option. (UC Credit Limitation/ CSU, AA GE, CSU GE, IGETC)

ASTR 116HC  Honors Introduction to Astronomy

3 Units

Term hours: 48–54 lecture. This course is an enhanced introduction to the concepts and theories of astronomy. Topics include the night sky, history of astronomy, the solar system, the sun, moon, planets, extra solar planets, stars, the interstellar medium, black holes, galaxies, cosmology, and life in the universe. Telescope observation sessions will be held on campus. Duplicate credit not granted for ASTR 116 C. (UC Credit Limitation/CSU, AA GE, CSU GE, IGETC)

ASTR 117 C  Astronomy Lab

1 Unit

ASTR 117HC  Honors Astronomy Lab

1 Unit

Prerequisite: Completion of or concurrent enrollment in ASTR 116 C or ASTR 116HC. Term hours: 48–54 laboratory. This course comprises an introduction to techniques of Astronomical measurement and analysis of Astronomical data. Emphasis will be on understanding how scientific knowledge is constructed, i.e. answering the question: how do we know what we know about the universe? Students will perform hands-on measurements, observations and exercises in data analysis relating to the solar system, stars, galaxies, large-scale structure of the universe, and cosmology. On campus telescopic observing may be done by students in the Astronomy Laboratory. Duplicate credit not granted for ASTR 117HC. (UC Credit Limitation/CSU, AA GE, CSU GE, IGETC) Prerequisite: Completion of or concurrent enrollment in ASTR 116 C or ASTR 116HC. Term hours: 48–54 laboratory. This enhanced course comprises an introduction to Astronomical measurement and analysis of Astronomical data. Emphasis will be on how scientific knowledge is constructed, i.e. answering the question: how do we know what we know about the universe? Students will perform hands-on measurements, observations and exercises in data analysis relating to the solar system, stars, galaxies, large-scale structure of the universe, and cosmology. Students will learn how to use a telescope, which may be computer controlled and take digital images. Duplicate credit not granted for ASTR 117 C. (UC Credit Limitation/CSU, AA GE, CSU GE, IGETC)

PROGRAM LEARNING OUTCOMES (PLOs) Auto Collision Repair

Upon completion of the Automotive Collision Repair courses students will be able to develop the following skills required by the National Automotive Technology Education Foundation (NATEF) to enhance their employment opportunities and advance their career goals: • Measure and diagnose structural damage using tram gauges and electronic measuring systems. • Determine the extent and direction of damage; plan and document the methods and sequence of repairs. • Remove and replace damaged sections of steel and aluminum body structures. • Clean and prepare metal to be welded, assure good metal fit-up, clamp and tack weld as required. • Perform the following welds: continuous, plug, butt weld with and without backing and fillet etc. • Inspect, remove, store and replace body panels and components that may interfere with or be damaged during repair. • Straighten contours of damaged panels to a suitable condition for body filling or metal finishing using power tools, hand tools and weld-on pulling attachments. • Restore corrosion protection throughout all repair areas. • Demonstrate hammer and dolly techniques including hot and cold shrinking of panel areas to proper contour. • Mix and apply body filler and sand to correct contour. • Inspect, adjust, repair or replace window regulators, run channels, glass, power mechanisms, and related controls. • Perform visual and destructive tests on each type of weld. • Identify types of plastics; rigid, semi-rigid or flexible and determine reparability. • Clean, inspect and repair reusable fasteners and identify one-time use fastener.

ASSOCIATE IN SCIENCE DEGREE AUTOMOTIVE COLLISION REPAIR Program Code: 1S07832

The following program is designed to prepare students for employment as automotive collision technicians and in numerous other related areas of the automotive and transportation industry. Training is given in both theory and practical skills. Directed practical work is given in all areas of automotive collision repair under simulated on-the-job conditions. The program suggested will provide the student the opportunity to acquire the knowledge and skills demanded of the modern auto­ motive collision technician.
