Students will be able to reflect on and apply their Christian Worldview to their everyday interaction with technology. There will be in class labs and take home projects.
Intro to Engineering
Introduction to Engineering is a course designed to give the student a broad overview of engineering disciplines and practices. The course will include a general study of the relationships between math, science, business, and engineering. We will examine the factors that affect design, professional ethics, how data drives decisions, and how to work within a team. The course will be project driven.
is a senior level course available to students who have completed Intro to Engineering. The course exposes students to some of the major concepts that they will encounter in a postsecondary engineering course of study. Students have an opportunity to investigate engineering and high-tech careers. Engineering 1 gives students the opportunity to develop skills and understanding of course concepts through activity-, project-, and problem-based (APPB) learning. Used in combination with a teaming approach, APPB learning challenges students to continually hone their interpersonal skills, creative abilities, and problem-solving skills based upon engineering concepts. It also allows students to develop strategies to enable and direct their own learning.
