Engineers solve some of the world’s biggest problems and have the potential to improve the quality of life for everyone on our planet through their ideas, designs, and inventions. In Principles of Engineering, students will explore the different types of engineering and gain exposure to the engineering design process from defining a problem to creating a viable solution to the problem. Throughout our course, students will learn skills to help them through the design process such as 2-D and 3-D modeling, how to operate under a given set of constraints such as budget and design limitations, static and dynamic design analysis, and leveraging technology to their advantage in the design process. Principles of Engineering will be an excellent way to expose students to the fundamentals of engineering or to deepen skills they already possess in these areas. Some lab fees will apply.
