Engineering Design and Development Capstone (Accelerated)
In this course students will expand their understanding of engineering design and combine that with principles of engineering that will enable them to develop, brainstorm, and fabricate a product that is functional, aesthetically pleasing, and meets weight, strength of materials, and other applicable product specifications. The students will investigate possibilities, research current patents and regulations, construct a working prototype, test the prototype in real life situations (or simulation), document their designs, and present and defend the design to a panel of experts. This course will satisfy the Senior Capstone requirement.
Prerequisite: Introduction to Engineering Design and Development and Trigonometry
This course is intended for Seniors wishing to complete an engineering design Capstone.
