INTRODUCTION TO ENGINEERING DESIGN (EDGT 1040) | UVU CONCURRENT ENROLLMENT -  FULL YEAR: 3 credits

  • SUGGESTED GRADES: 10-12

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. Projects include designing, building and testing a lamp made of laser-cut parts, miniature catapults, puzzle cubes, Automoblox cars, crank toys and 3D-printed objects. 


 

ENGINEERING PRINCIPLES 1 | high school course - Semester

  • SUGGESTED GRADES: 10-12 
  • PreReq:  Intro to Engineering

The 1st 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. Utilizing problem-solving skills in a laboratory environment, students develop skills and attitudes that impact and expand occupational opportunities in engineering. Projects include designing, building and testing balsa wood bridges, catapults, ballistas, trebuchets, mousetrap cars, Rube Goldberg machines, maglev trains, video games, electrical gadgets and prosthetic arms.


ENGINEERING PRINCIPLES 2 (ENGR 1000) | WSU CONCURRENT ENROLLMENT  - 2ND SEMESTER: 2 Credits

  • SUGGESTED GRADES: 10-12
  • PreReq: Engineering Principles 1

The 2nd 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. Utilizing problem-solving skills in a laboratory environment, students develop skills and attitudes that impact and expand occupational opportunities in engineeringProjects include designing, building and testing balsa wood bridges, catapults, ballistas, trebuchets, mousetrap cars, Rube Goldberg machines, maglev trains, video games, electrical gadgets and prosthetic arms.


ENGINEERING CAPSTONE | high school course - Semester

  • SUGGESTED GRADES: 11-12
  • PreReq:  Intro to Engineering or Engineering Principles

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.


AUTOMATED MANUFACTURING PRINCIPLES 1 | HIGH SCHOOL COURSE - SEMESTER

  • SUGGESTED GRADES: 10-12

This program will utilize industry-standard tools, manufacturing equipment, and procedures for automated manufacturing. A hands-on approach is the focus to specialize students in manufacturing equipment maintenance, operation and the design process for new products being built..


ROBOTICS 1 | HIGH SCHOOL COURSE - SEMESTER or FULL YEAR

  • SUGGESTED GRADES: 10-12

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.
