Course Sequence & Pathway

Course Sequence & Pathway

Engineering I

A foundation course that applies the skills, concepts, and principles of engineering. Students are introduced to the design process and documentation procedures in an engineering notebook. Topics include investigating mechanisms, design optimization, computer-aided design, and electrical circuits. Students create physical and virtual models of design solutions and test, collect, and report data.

Engineering II

A project and research based course that continues deeper into the foundation skills developed in Engineering I. Students focus on mechanical, civil, electrical, and aerospace systems. Includes in-depth exploration into selected disciplines of engineering areas such as material science, power/energy/transportation, robotics, electronics, bio-mechanics and engineering ethics.

Engineering Capstone

This is a laboratory-based course designed to study an engineering challenge, and/or recent technological advancements of interest to the student. This study should include how this advancement affects society and/or environment. A culminating project integrating one or more of the contexts of the field of engineering is encouraged. It should include research, design, construction, analysis, writing, and presenting.
