25502 - Engineering III



This course applies engineering technology and skills to the manufacturing processes while recognizing that engineering is a human endeavor intended to address the needs of a global society. This course will examine the relationship of manufacturing and process development to the world of engineering. Students will use advanced engineering design, production, and programming techniques for Mobile robotics (VEX), Robotic Arm, 3 Dimensional Modeling, and Computer Numerical Control (CNC). Students will incorporate mathematical and scientific modeling and processes in order to solve real world manufacturing and production problems. Students will identify the impact of various engineering disciplines on manufacturing processes. Students will continue to utilize and improve technical communication skills (reading, writing, and speaking). Students will investigate the impact of manufacturing and robotics on both local and global societies. 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.
