Principles of Engineering


Quarter Course (1 unit)

Prerequisite: Successful completion of Introduction to Engineering Design

This course is designed to help students understand the field of engineering and engineering technology and its career possibilities. Students will develop engineering problem solving skills used in engineering careers by applying math and science skills learned in their high school classes. They will explore various engineering systems and manufacturing processes. They will also learn how engineers address concerns about the social and political consequences of technological change. The main purpose of this course is to experience, through theory and hands-on problem solving activities, what engineering is all about and to answer the question, “Is a career in engineering or engineering technology for me?”

Students will pay a $20.00 materials fee.
