INTRODUCTION TO ENGINEERING DESIGN (EGDT 1040) | UVU CONCURRENT ENROLLMENT -  FULL YEAR

  • SUGGESTED GRADES: 10-12
  • 1 Credit HS  (A88180C)
  • 3 Credits CE

Students are taught the Engineering design process, research and analysis, teamwork, communication methods, and engineering standards for technical documentation. Students will employ engineering and scientific concepts while finding solutions for engineering design problems.  Computer-Aided- Design (CAD) and 3D Solid Modeling software will aid students in the design process.  Projects include laser-cut designs, miniature catapults, puzzle cubes, Automoblox cars, crank toys, and 3D-printed objects.


ENGINEERING PRINCIPLES 1 | HIGH SCHOOL COURSE - SEMESTER

  • SUGGESTED GRADES: 11-12 
  • .5 Credit HS. (A86332)
  • PreReq: Intro to Engineering

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. 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)  | WEBER STATE CONCURRENT ENROLLMENT - SEMESTER

  • SUGGESTED GRADES: 11-12
  • .5 Credit HS. (A86382C)
  • 2 Credits CE
  • PreReq: Engineering Principles 1

ADVANCED ENGINEERING DESIGN 3 | HIGH SCHOOL COURSE - SEMESTER

  • SUGGESTED GRADES: 11-12
  • .5 Credit HS. (A86672)
  • PreReq:  Engineering Principles 2

The third in a sequence of courses that prepares individuals with an emphasis in developing technical knowledge and skills to develop working drawings in support of mechanical and industrial engineers, and related professionals. This includes instruction in the use of 3D Computer-Aided Design (CAD) software, threads and fasteners, welding symbols, geometric dimensioning and tolerancing, and assemblies.


ENGINEERING CAPSTONE | HIGH SCHOOL COURSE - SEMESTER

  • SUGGESTED GRADES: 11-12
  • .5 Credit HS. (A86403, A86404)
  • 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.


MANUFACTURING PRINCIPLES | HIGH SCHOOL COURSE - SEMESTER

  • SUGGESTED GRADES: 10-12
  • .5 Credit HS (A86202)

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 | HIGH SCHOOL COURSE - SEMESTER or FULL YEAR

  • SUGGESTED GRADES: 10-12
  • .5-1 Credit HS  (A86402)

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.
