Students will gain experience by researching, designing and producing assignments involving engineering. Students will develop
thinking skills, teamwork and problem solving skills. Areas covered will be Civil Engineering, Structural Engineering, Automotive
Engineering, Aerospace/Aeronautical Engineering and Biomedical Engineering. This course is designed for the students seeking
experience in engineering and wishing to explore the various disciplines of the engineering profession. This course is strongly
recommended for any student considering a career in engineering or a related field.
Students learn about the various areas involved in Mechanical Engineering. The course starts with learning about engines with the student working with a small gas engine. Students will also learn about Electricity, electronics, fluidics, robotics, airplanes as well as simple machines.
Introduction to Drafting
This exploratory course is designed to provide students with an opportunity to use and develop an appreciation for methods and
equipment used by engineers, architects, and drafters. Practical experience, including computer-aided drafting (CADD), is gained
by using drafting tools and methods to produce technical drawings. Students are taught the basic techniques of mechanical drafting.
This is the entry-level course and is the prerequisite for Architectural Drafting/CADD.
This course provides the student with an opportunity to design a house for a “client” following a set of standards. The course is beneficial to those planning careers in building, building design or mechanical trades. Instruction includes the materials and methods of construction, giving students the opportunity to solve problems and utilize solutions. This course also provides the student with an in-depth look at computer-aided drafting and design (CADD). Computer drafting software reflecting industry, are utilized to produce various types of technical drawings.
Students experience project activities in binding, screen-printing (t-shirts, etc.), offset printing (notepads, business cards, etc.), and
desktop publishing (brochure, deck of playing cards, etc.). This course is designed to stimulate interest and acquaint students with
careers related to the graphic technology industry. A small lab fee is required for student projects.
Graphic Technology II
Students experience project activities in screen-printing (multi-color t-shirts, etc.), offset printing (multi-color notepads, business
cards, etc.) and desktop publishing. This course is designed for students that were successful in the introductory course and may
want to consider careers related to the graphic technology industry. A small lab fee is required for student projects.
Graphic Technology III
Students experience project activities in screen-printing (advanced multi-color projects), offset printing (press operation) and
desktop publishing (emphasizing color printing). This course is designed for students who are considering potential careers in the
graphic technology industry. A small lab fee is required for student projects.
