What is Engineering?
Engineering is the only program a student can complete in one year (if s/he has 4 blocks available)!

Engineering I teaches students the history of engineering and the careers associated with the field. The students will also learn the foundations and fundamentals of engineering and materials, as well as the engineering design process and the steps one follows for successful design planning. Additionally, students are introduced to the advanced concepts of 3-D sketching and modeling with CAD software. The course introduces students to the field of robotics in engineering. It also focuses on several fields of engineering specialization.

Engineering II focuses on the four systems: electrical, fluid, mechanical, and thermal. This course teaches students the concepts of digital electronic control system technology, focusing on electronics, gates, and truth tables. Students will also learn valuable workforce readiness skills and participate in advanced programming robotic equipment, including Computer Integrated Manufacturing.
