Intro to Engineering Design 1

1 – CRHS – 9/10/11/12
E

Introduction to Engineering Design (IED) is a high school level foundation course in the PLTW Engineering Program. In IED students are introduced to the engineering profession and a common approach to the solution of engineering problems, an engineering design process. Utilizing the activity-project-problem-based (APB) teaching and learning pedagogy, students will progress from completing structured activities to solving open-ended projects and problems that require them to develop planning, documentation, communication, and other professional skills

Intro to Engineering Design 2

Intro to Engineering Design 1

Through both individual and collaborative team activities, projects, and problems, students will solve problems as they practice common engineering design and development protocols such as project management and peer review. Students will develop skill in technical representation and documentation of design solutions according to accepted technical standards, and they will use current 3D design and modeling software to represent and communicate solutions. In addition the development of computational methods that are commonly used in engineering problem solving, including statistical analysis and mathematical modeling, are emphasized. Ethical issues related to professional practice and product development are also presented.

Introduction to Drafting and CADD

1 – CRHS – 9/10/11/12
E
Intro to Engineering Design

Mechanical Drafting: An entry level course in Communications Systems which addresses the concepts needed to transfer ideas into an easily understood graphic language, designs or drawings. The use of drawing tools, including mechanical devices and computer software is essential for student studies. Each of the major areas of drafting and design should be explored on an introductory level. CADD: An entry level course in Communications Systems designed to provide students with an understanding of the operation and features of a current industrial computer aided drafting/design (CADD) system. Emphasis is placed on the application of computer software in solving basic architectural, structural, electronic or mechanical drafting problems. The purpose of the course is to assist individuals in making meaningful occupational and educational choices. Basic technical information and laboratory experiences directly related to the operation and application of computer software is provided in a hands-on approach.

Machining for Engineers

2 – CRHS – 10/11/12
E
C or Higher in Geometry or concurrent enrollment

This class is similar to Precision Machining / Automated Manufacturing I EXCEPT the student is required to be enrolled in Geometry or passed Geometry with a C or Better. More emphasis will be placed on the drafting and technical aspects of the course that will prepare students for engineering related curriculum. This class is designed to better prepare students for future careers in Engineering, Manufacturing, and Machining related fields.

Principles of Engineering 1

1 – CRHS – 10/11/12
E
Intro to Engineering Design 1

Principles of Engineering (POE) is a foundation course of the high school engineering pathway. This survey course exposes students to some of the major concepts that they will encounter in a postsecondary engineering course of study. Through problems that engage and challenge, students explore a broad range of engineering topics, including mechanisms, the strength of materials and structures, automation, and kinematics. The course applies and concurrently develops secondary level knowledge and skills in mathematics, science, and technology.

Principles of Engineering 2

Principles of Engineering 1

Students have the opportunity to develop skills and understanding of course concepts through activity-, project-, and problem-based (APB) learning. By solving rigorous and relevant design problems using engineering and science concepts within a collaborative learning environment, APB learning challenges students to continually hone their interpersonal skills, creative abilities, and problem solving skills. Students will also learn how to document their work and communicate their solutions to their peers and members of the professional community. It also allows students to develop strategies to enable and direct their own learning, which is the ultimate goal of education.
