Engineering Design and Development Capstone (Accelerated)

Credits: 1

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.
