Introduction to Engineering Design and Development (Accelerated)

Credits: 1

In this projects-based course, students use an iterative design cycle to explore a variety of engineering problems. The first half of the course is focused on developing the tools of design: understanding usability, identifying needs and analyzing solutions, working collaboratively, and communicating ideas with sketches and industry-standard modeling software (CAD). During the second half of the course, students pursue a series of independent and team projects that expose them to several different types
of engineering.


Prerequisite: At least concurrent enrollment in Algebra II.
