    Introduction 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 3-D modeling software, and use an engineering notebook to document their work. 


    Principles of Engineering

    Through problems that engage and challenge, students explore a broad range of engineering topics, including mechanisms, the strength of structures and materials, and automation. Students develop skills in problem solving, research, and design while learning strategies for design process documentation, collaboration, and presentation.


    Aerospace Engineering

    This course propels students’ learning in the fundamentals of atmospheric and space flight. As they explore the physics of flight, students bring the concepts to life by designing an airfoil, propulsion system, and rockets. They learn basic orbital mechanics using industry-standard software. They also explore robot systems through projects such as remotely operated vehicles. 


    Architectural Drawing & Design 

    Students taking this course will design a house and produce scaled, dimensioned drawings, a set of CAD (computer aided drafting) plans and a three-dimensional model of that residence.  Topics that will be studied include architectural styles, basic house designs, construction materials and techniques, construction costs and financing, room planning, energy conservations, floor plans, elevation (exterior) views, basic drafting techniques, three dimensional models and CAD. 


    Engineering Design

     Students in this course will design, build, test and evaluate working solutions to real life problems.  Basic engineering concepts, problem solving methods and design techniques will be studied.  Students will expand their CAD (computer aided drafting) knowledge by completing more complicated drawings such as exploded views, cross sections, shell designs and designing and drawing a consumer product.  CAD technology will be fully used in this course.
