• Engineering Design I:

    This course is a project based course designed to introduce students to the field of engineering and engineering design.  This course will provide an overview of the fields of engineering with an emphasis on engineering principles and practices.  Topics such as mechanical systems and engineering graphics are included.  The engineering design principles and practices related to each of the systems will be emphasized through hands-on experiences in a wide range of engineering technologies using industrial quality equipment and software.  Work-based learning strategies for this course may include job shadowing and/or field experiences.  Oral and written skills are reinforced through presentations, group projects and technical writing.  This course focuses on improving academic skills and teaches other important career skills such as problem-solving, work ethic, and critical thinking.  This course is a Dual Enrollment course with the University of New Orleans - PHYS 1063 for one (1) college credit.   This course is offered at the Satellite Center to senior students only.  

    PREREQUISITE:  Completed Engineering Design Packet (Overall GPA of 2.5; Math and Science Overall GPA of 2.75 (Math ACT of 19 or higher can be accepted instead of the 2.75); Letter of Recommendation from a math and science teacher; Successful completion of Student Questionnaire and should have taken or concurrently be enrolled in Advanced Math.      

    Grade level:  12      Credit:  1       Fee:  (None) NOTE:  One additional credit in Honors Physics will be earned along with this course credit.

     

    Engineering Design II:

    Engineering Design II is a project based course designed to introduce the topics of mechanical and electromagnetic waves, and electrical, electronic, and microcomputer engineering.  Engineering design principles and practices related to each of the systems will be emphasized through hands-on activities and  projects.  Work-based learning strategies for this course include field experiences to local industry and possible job shadowing.  Oral and written skills are reinforced through presentations, group projects, and technical writing.  This course focuses on improving academic skills and teaches other important career skills such as problem-solving, work ethic, and critical thinking. This course is a Dual Enrollment course with the University of New Orleans - PHYS 1065 for one (1) college credit.    This course is offered at the Satellite Center to senior students only. In addition to Engineering Design II, students will take year long Physics H.
