Introduction to Engineering and Technology

Jody S. Robinson, PE

 

Course Description:
                            This course introduces students to various tools and problem-solving skills common to most fields of engineering and technology. It emphasizes developing both individual critical thinking and collaborative problem solving skills, essential in today’s world of technology. Students learn the basics of the engineering design process of product design, testing and evaluation. In teams, students apply this process to complete a project that involves practical problem-solving, computer simulation and product development. To assist in the project analysis, documentation and presentation, students develop skills with spreadsheets, word processing and presentation software.
