25500 - Engineering I



This course is designed to introduce students to the world of Engineering Design and problem solving through the design process. The course I designed for any student who intends to pursue future training in any engineering program or technical industry. Students use problem-solving models to improve existing products while utilizing development processes to create new products. They will learn how to apply these models to solve problems in and out of the classroom setting. Students will apply mathematical and scientific concepts and models when being introduced to the fundamentals of mechanical, structural (civil, architectural and green technology), aeronautical, and robotic (Mindstorms) engineering and electrical concepts. Students will use multiple software packages, engineering poster sessions, and presentations to develop technical communication literacy skills. Computer assisted instruction, lab activities and classroom discussions will be used to create a foundation for problem solving and engineering concepts. Career and Technical Student Organization (CTSO) standards will be an integral part of this class. Dual credit may be obtained for this program at high schools offering this option. An honors option is available to all students enrolled in the course. Successful completion of the program may qualify students to receive the Mastery of Subject Area Graduation Endorsement. Students are encouraged to work with their program teachers to determine eligibility.
