Intro to Engineering and Design (IED)

Prerequisites: None
Course Syllabus
Credits: 1
This course is the entry-level course of the Project Lead the Way Pathway to Engineering curriculum. The major focus of IED is the design process and its application. Through hands-on projects, students apply engineering standards and document their work. Students use industry standard 3D modeling software to help them design solutions to solve proposed problems, document their work using an engineer's notebook, and communicate solutions to peers and members of the professional community.

Parents/Guardians: If you have any experience with Drafting, Design, Autocad, Solidworks or Inventor, Engineering of any type and would like to impart your knowledge and experience with my students by coming into my classes as a guest speaker please contact me at the e-mail address below.
