(Pre-Engineering Program)

    Grade: 9 - 12

    Duration: 2 Semesters

    Prerequisite: None

    Credit: 1.0

    IED is an introductory course that develops student problem solving skills,  with emphasis placed on the development of three-dimensional solid models, students will work from sketching simple geometric shapes to applying a solid modeling computer software package. They will learn a problem solving design process and how it is used in industry to manufacture a product. A Computer Aided Design System (CAD) will also be used to analyze and evaluate the product design. The techniques learned, and equipment used, are state-of-the-art and currently being used by      engineers throughout the United States.

    Students will complete a series of drawings which will include but not be limited to: isometric, orthographic, oblique, sectional, and perspective drawings. Other components of the course will include sketches, prototypes, 3-D modeling, research,  and class presentations.
