What I Teach: Engineering as a "Program of Study"
Engineering is a program of study designed for students interested in the various disciplines of engineering and engineering technology. Course content is arranged around four sequenced, progressive courses that provide students with the opportunity to develop critical thinking skills and understanding of engineering concepts. Students then apply these skills in conjunction with the multi-step engineering design process to solve real-world problems. The capstone Engineering Practicum course places students with industry partners to complete a design project, report the results, and present their project before an audience. Students have the option to complete AP Physics as an alternative to the Engineering Practicum course. Upon completion of this program of study, students will be prepared to pursue engineering studies at post-secondary institutions.
