Instructor: Miles Hudson
Intro to Engineering Design
Students dig deep into the engineering design process, applying math, science, and engineering standards to hands-on projects. They work both individually and in teams to design solutions to a variety of problems using 3D modeling software, and use an engineering notebook to document their work. Prerequisite/Corequisite: Algebra 1-2
From smart phones to appliances, digital circuits are all around us. This course provides a foundation for students who are interested in electrical engineering, electronics, or circuit design. Students study topics such as combinational and sequential logic and are exposed to circuit design tools used in industry, including logic gates, integrated circuits, and programmable logic devices.
Design, build, and program robots! Learn how circuit boards work. Using Arduino and Lego/Tetrix robots we will cover the fundamentals of problem solving, program design, algorithms and coding. You will have the option of joining a First Tech Challenge competition team which requires a commitment to attend evening and weekend events.
Principles of Engineering (POE)
Explore a broad range of engineering topics, including simple machines, structural and material strength, and automation. Develop skills in problem solving, research, and design while learning strategies for design process documentation, collaboration, and presentation. Use an engineering notebook to organize knowledge and document project work.
With acquired skills from one or more Career and Technical Education (CTE) pathways, apply knowledge to complete a major project. Generate a concept and define success criteria in an environment that models experience in college or industry. Grow skills in time management, research, public speaking, teamwork, and completion of complex projects while following the design process to develop an idea and follow it through to a final deliverable.
