Principles of Applied Engineering M (9-10) #8703

This course provides an overview of the various fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics and their interrelationships. Working on design teams, students will use multiple computer hardware and software applications to conduct research, design and create projects, and present ideas related to biotechnology, electronics, robotics, and automation. Students will use appropriate tools and demonstrate safe work habits.

SEM: 2 CR: 1

 

Manufacturing Engineering Technology I M (10- 12) #8722

(Freshman who completed Principles of Applied Engineering in the 8th grade are APPROVED to enroll in this LEVEL 2 course in the 9th grade.)

Students will gain knowledge and skills in the application, design, production, and assessment of products, services, and systems and how those knowledge and skills are applied to manufacturing. Students will prepare for success in the global economy. The study of manufacturing engineering will allow students to reinforce, apply, and transfer academic knowledge and skills to a variety of interesting and relevant activities, problems, and settings in a manufacturing setting.

SEM: 2 CR: 1

 

Engineering Design and Presentation I M (11-12) #8708

Students will use multiple software applications and tools necessary to produce and present working drawings, solid model renderings, and prototypes of engineering designs. Students will implement the design process to transfer advanced academic skills to component designs. Students explore entry level requirements and career opportunities in engineering, technology, and drafting.
