Principles of Engineering Technology (POE) (9-10)

  • Prerequisite: None

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.  

 

Engineering Design I (10-12)

  • Prerequisite: Level 1 of the Engineering Pathway

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.

 

Engineering Design II (10-12)

  • Prerequisite: Levels 1-2 of the Engineering Pathway

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 (programming), 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.

 

ENGINEERING CAPSTONE CHOICES

Engineering Design Practicum (11-12)

  • Prerequisite: Levels 1-3 of the Engineering Pathway

Engineering Practicum is a capstone course intended to provide students with the opportunity to apply the skills and knowledge learned in previous Engineering courses within a professional, working environment. In addition to developing an understanding of the professional and ethical issues encountered by engineers and technologists in the workplace, students learn to refine their skills in problem solving, research, communication, data analysis, teamwork, and project management. The course is highly customizable to meet local system needs: instruction may be delivered through school laboratory training or through work-based learning arrangements such as internships, cooperative education, service learning, mentoring, and job shadowing. Upon completion of the practicum, students will be prepared for postsecondary study in engineering and technology fields.
