Computer Aided Design (CAD)

This is an introductory course in computer aided drafting computer technology for creation and documentation of 2D drawings and 3D models. Students are introduced to the computer-aided drafting systems available in the industry. *Students enrolled in this course are automatically enrolled in the Fundamentals of Fabrication course second semester.

Engineering I

This course teaches the basics of engineering problem solving, engineering problem solving tools, technical communications, and the engineering profession. Additionally, students are presented a series of design challenges to which they apply the engineering design process and engineering analysis techniques in order to implement practical solutions.

Engineering II

This course provides an opportunity for students to apply the fundamentals of mathematics and science to engineering through the study of analog & digital electronics and computer engineering in a hands-on, project-based approach. Topics include DC and AC electronics, semiconductor devices, and digital circuits. Students learn the basics of hardware design languages as well as designing and implementing microcontroller-based projects.

Engineering III Internship

This course prepares students to use critical thinking skills and apply formulations from pre-calculus and basics to innovative engineering job functions of research, design, development, testing, and analysis when preparing product. Students apply concepts of math and science, and problem-solving skills to different systems using input and process, and, output and feedback. Students further demonstrate fundamentals of engineering and mechanics using scientific principles from materials to construct a project with consideration to manufacturability environmental factors, economics, and safety. This course is modeled to university criterion covering engineering theory through a hands-on approach.

Fundamentals of Fabrication

Students enrolled in this course receive instruction in basic fabrication skills in order to safely and accurately create prototypes. Concepts and skills focus on shop safety, safe tool use, measurement, field sketching, basic tool use, material removal & joining techniques, and additive fabrication processes. This course also provides an overview of modem manufacturing processes and includes a student capstone project.

Special Topics in STEM

This course enables students to explore a topic of interest related to STEM disciplines, apply research principles, develop and test solutions, and document primary research. Working under the guidance of a faculty advisor, the students write a formal thesis and define their research project before a committee. This course serves as an opportunity for students to expand their expertise in a focused specialization, to explore a topic in greater detail, and to develop more advanced research skills. This independent student course is open to juniors and seniors in the STEM program.
