PLTW – Introduction to Engineering Design – 9670

Interested in an engineering related field of study? The major focus of this course is to expose students to the design process, research and analysis, teamwork, communication methods, engineering standards and technical documentation. Through a limited number of hands-on projects, students apply engineering standards while you document work and design. Students use industry-standard 3D modeling software to help design solutions to solve proposed problems, document work using an engineer’s notebook and communicate solutions to peers and members of the professional community. The course assumes no previous knowledge.
