A number of lab experiments have been developed that are common among a number of EET courses. The experiments have the intent of quick change-over from one course to another and a low relative cost so that multiple stations can be used simultaneously in the same room.

This paper will outline with some technical content the courses served, the lab experiments and the equipment. An outline of costs will be included.

Courses include courses in PLCs, embedded systems, database applications, C programming and automatic controls. Experiments will include simple one-week experiments as well as longer multiple week experiments requiring programming or in-depth diagnostic measurement.

This paper is updated from a paper given at the ASEE NCS Conference in Akron, Ohio, 2018.
