This program consists of four courses: Principle of Engineering (POE), Civil Engineering and Architecture (CEA), Engineering Design and Development (EDD), and Aerospace Engineering (AE). The POE course is an introduction to some of the major concepts that students will encounter in a post-secondary engineering course of study. POE gives students the opportunity to develop skills and understanding of course concepts through activityproject-problem based learning. This class may also be taken concurrently through USU (ENGR 1000 — Introduction to Engineering Design) The CEA course will introduce students to important aspects of building and site design and development. They will apply what they have learned to design a residential and commercial building. The EDD course will focus students working in teams to develop an original solution to a valid open ended technical problem by applying the engineering design process. They will research, validate, and justify a technical problem. Teach team will design, build, and test their solution. The AE course will have the students explore the physics of flight and bring what they’re learning to life through hands-on projects like designing a glider and creating a program for an autonomous space rover.
Students will be involved in hands-on projects. Activities will be team oriented. Attention to detail will be emphasized.
• Principles of Engineering – A course that helps students understand the field of engineering/engineering technology. Exploring various technology systems and manufacturing processes help students learn how engineers and technicians use math, science and technology in an engineering problem solving process to benefit people. The course also includes concerns about social and political consequences of technological change.
• Engineering Design & Development – An engineering research course in which students work in teams to research, design and construct a solution to an engineering problem of their choice. Students apply principles developed in the three preceding courses and are guided by the engineering instructor. They must present progress reports, submit a final written report and defend their solutions to a panel of outside reviewers at the end of the school year.
