Engineering Design Course
An introductory engineering design curriculum for secondary schools, this course challenges students to work in teams in order to solve real-world design problems. Students research, design, develop, and communicate design solutions. Teams learn the fundamentals of computer-aided design (CAD) software, and use the software to prepare and evaluate their own designs. The course also makes extensive use of 3D printing, which allows students to see the physical manifestation of their designs, as well as understand design for manufacturing concepts. This course will prepare students for Level 1 Solid Edge Certification.
