Prerequisite: C or better in Algebra I.
Introduction to Engineering Design is a course which develops student problem solving skills using the design process. Students document their progress of solutions as they move through the design process. Students develop solutions using elements of design and manufacturability concepts. They develop hand sketches using 2D and 3D drawing techniques as well as 2D and 3D models using Computer-Aided Design (CAD). Students will also print their finalized 3D design solutions using 3D printers. The use of robotics in manufacturing also will be explored. PC or Mac-based laptop required. Tablets and Chromebooks are not acceptable.
