6C21H04 Principles of Engineering (9-10)

  • Prerequisite: N/A

  • Principles of Engineering and Technology is a foundational course for students interested in learning more about careers in engineering and technology. This course covers basic skills required for engineering and technology fields of study. Upon completion of this course, proficient students are able to identify and explain the steps in the engineering design process. They can evaluate an existing engineering design, use fundamental sketching and engineering drawing techniques including CAD software to create three dimensional drawings, complete simple design projects using the engineering design process, and effectively communicate design solutions to others.  

 

6C10H14 Honors Introduction to Computer Programming (Coding I) (8-9) 

  • Prerequisite:  N/A

This is a course that provides an overview of computer hardware, software, operating systems and programming languages.  Students will learn to develop computer applications for solving a variety of problems.  They will prepare algorithms, design tests and write code using the popular C++ language.  The course will cover flow-of-control using a number of different looping and branching techniques and will introduce a variety of predefined functions that will be required to solve a number of assigned problems by using computer programs.  

 

6C21H05 Engineering Design I (10-12)

  • Prerequisite: Introduction to Engineering or Principles of Engineering

Engineering Design I extends the design process, sketching and CAD skills learned in POE by solving real world problems.  The student will explore mechanical engineering concepts through challenging machine design projects.  They will also be able to identify simple and complex machines; calculate various ratios related to mechanisms; explain fundamental concepts related to energy; and understand Ohm’s Law.  The final team project will introduce architecture CAD software to design a handicap accessible Habitat for Humanity house.

 

6C21H06   Engineering Design II (10-12)

  • Prerequisite: Principles of Engineering & Engineering Design I

Engineering Design II is a fundamental course in the STEM cluster for students interested in developing their skills in preparation for careers in engineering and technology. The course covers essential knowledge, skills, and concepts required for postsecondary engineering and technology fields of study. Upon completion of this course, proficient students are able to describe various engineering disciplines, as well as admissions requirements for postsecondary engineering and engineering technology programs in Tennessee.  Engineering systems are studied including machine control (programing), Fluid mechanics, and  Materials and Mechanical Properties.  The final team project will be an engineering problem that will use architecture CAD software to design buildings, roads, bridges, and landscape to meet a need of the community.  It will include calculating forces in statics and studying engineering ethics, economics, and social and environmental impacts of the project.

 

6C21H14   Engineering Design Practicum (11-12)

  • Prerequisite: Principles of Engineering & Engineering Design I
