Principles of Engineering
Prerequisite: sophomore level math and scienceThis survey course of engineering exposes students to some of the major concepts
they’ll encounter in a postsecondary engineering course of study. Students have
an opportunity to investigate engineering and high-tech careers and to develop
skills and understanding of course concepts. Students employ engineering and
scientific concepts in the solution of engineering design problems. They develop
problem-solving skills and apply their knowledge of research and design to create
solutions to various challenges. Students also learn how to document their work and
communicate their solutions to peers and members of the professional community.
This course is designed for 10th or 11th grade students.
