INTRODUCTION TO ENGINEERING DESIGN

INTRODUCTION TO ENGINEERING DESIGN CE (PLTW)  |  UVU CONCURRENT ENROLLMENT -  FULL YEAR- 3 CREDITS

SUGGESTED GRADES: 10-12
PREREQUISITES: NONE

Students are taught to understand and apply the design process, create sketches, use computer software to design models, understand mass property calculations and parametric modeling, understand cost analysis, quality control, staffing needs, packing and product marketing, explore career opportunities in design engineering and understand what skills and education these jobs require, and develop portfolios to display their designs and present them properly to peers, instructors and professionals.

MANUFACTURING PRINCIPLES 1

MANUFACTURING PRINCIPLES 1  -  SEMESTER - .5 CREDITS

SUGGESTED GRADES: 10-12
PREREQUISITES: NONE

The first in a sequence of courses addressing the history and principles of industry, product development, operational structure, and quality management. Emphasis is placed on the interaction of processes selection, strength optimization, cost, and overall quality.

ROBOTICS 1

ROBOTICS 1 - SEMESTER  - .5 CREDITS

SUGGESTED GRADES: 10-12
PREREQUISITES: NONE

This course prepares individuals with a lab-based, hands-on curriculum combining electrical, mechanical and engineering principles. Students will learn to design, build, program, and control robotic devices. A rigorous study and application of electrical concepts will include sources of energy, electrical safety, use and identification of basic electronic components, sensors and actuators. Engineering concepts will include mechanical design, prototype development, design testing, programming, and proper engineer documentation.

ENGINEERING PRINCIPLES 1

ENGINEERING PRINCIPLES 1  -  1ST SEMESTER- .5 CREDITS

SUGGESTED GRADES: 10-12
PREREQUISITES:  INTRO TO ENGINEERING DESIGN OR CAD MECHANICAL DESIGN 1

The first in a sequence of “hands-on” courses that tie observations and concepts common to a variety of different engineering disciplines in order to develop a better understanding of basic math and science principles used in engineering. By utilizing problem-solving skills in a laboratory environment, students will develop skills and attitudes that impact and expand occupational opportunities in engineering.

ENGINEERING PRINCIPLES 2

ENGINEERING PRINCIPLES 2 CE   |  WSU CONCURRENT ENROLLMENT  - 2ND SEMESTER - 2 CREDITS

SUGGESTED GRADES: 10-12
PREREQUISITES:  ENGINEERING PRINCIPLES 1

The second in a sequence of “hands-on” courses that tie observations and concepts common to a variety of different engineering disciplines in order to develop a better understanding of basic math and science principles used in engineering. By utilizing problem-solving skills in a laboratory environment, students will develop skills and attitudes that impact and expand occupational opportunities in engineering.

ENGINEERING DESIGN & DEVELOPMENT

ENGINEERING DESIGN & DEVELOPMENT  (PLTW)  - FULL YEAR  

SUGGESTED GRADES: 12
REQUIRED PREREQUISITE: SENIORS ONLY. INTRODUCTION TO ENGINEERING DESIGN. 

In this capstone course, students will work 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. Each team will design, build, and test their solution. While progressing through the engineering design process, students will work closely with experts and will continually hone their organizational, communication and interpersonal skills, their creative and problem-solving abilities, and their understanding of the design process. Finally, student teams will present and defend their original solution to an outside panel.
