COURSE DESCRIPTIONS

 

Introduction to Engineering Design

1 Credit

Prerequisite: None

The major focus of the IED course is to expose students to the design process, research and analysis, teamwork, communication methods, global and human impacts, engineering standards and technical documentation. Students use 3D solid modeling design software to help them design solutions to solve proposed problems and learn how to document their work and communicate solutions to peers and members of the professional community.  This course is graded on a 100 point scale.

 

Principles of Engineering

1 Credit

Prerequisite: Introduction to Engineering Design

This survey course of engineering exposes students to major concepts they’ll encounter in a postsecondary engineering course of study. Students employ engineering and scientific concepts in the solution of engineering design problems. They develop problem-solving skills and apply their knowledge of research and design to create solutions to various challenges, documenting their work and communicating solutions to peers and members of the professional community.  This course is graded on a 100 point scale.

 

 

Computer Integrated Manufacturing

1 Credit

Prerequisite: Principles of Engineering

Students answer the questions: How are things made? What processes go into creating products? Is the process for making a water bottle the same as it is for a musical instrument? How do assembly lines work? How has automation changed the face of manufacturing? As students find the answers to these questions, they learn about the history of manufacturing, a sampling of manufacturing processes, robotics and automation. The course is built around several key concepts: computer modeling, Computer Numeric Control (CNC) equipment, Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) software, robotics and flexible manufacturing systems.  This course is graded on a 100 point scale.

 

Civil Engineering and Architecture

1 Credit

Prerequisite: Principles of Engineering

Students apply what they learn about various aspects of civil engineering and architecture to the design and development of a property. Working in teams, students explore hands-on activities and projects to learn the characteristics of civil engineering and architecture. In addition, students use 3D design software to help them design solutions to solve major course projects. Students learn about documenting their project, solving problems and communicating their solutions to their peers and members of the professional community of civil engineering and architecture.  This course is graded on a 100 point scale.

 

Engineering Design and Development

1 Credit

Prerequisite: Computer Integrated Manufacturing and Civil Engineering and Architecture

This is an engineering research course in which students will work in teams to research, design, test and construct a solution to an open-ended engineering problem. The product development life cycle and a design process are used to guide and help the team to reach a solution to the problem. The team presents and defends their solution to a panel of outside reviewers at the conclusion of the course. The EDD course allows students to apply all the skills and knowledge learned in previous Project Lead the Way courses. The use of 3D design software helps students design solutions to the problem their team has chosen. This course also engages students in time management and teamwork skills, a valuable set for students in the future. This course is designed for 12th grade students.  This course is graded on a 100 point scale.

Work-Based Learning Career Practicum 

 

1 Credit

 

Prerequisite: Teacher Approval

 

Work-Based Learning Career Practicum is a capstone course intended to provide students with opportunities to apply the skills and knowledge learned in previous CTE and general education courses within a professional work environment. The course allows students to earn high school credit for select models of work-based learning, which allow students to interact with industry professionals in order to extend and deepen classroom work and support the development of postsecondary and career readiness knowledge and skills. WBL experiences must reflect the student’s long-term goals and interests and foster Postsecondary and career preparation. This course is graded on a 100 point scale.
