Engineering Explorations I

8450 (1 Credit)
Grades 9, 10, 11, 12

In Engineering Explorations I, students examine technology and engineering fundamentals in relation to solving real-world problems. Students investigate engineering history, including major engineering achievements, and they examine the principle engineering specialty fields and their related careers. Students practice engineering fundamentals, using mathematical and scientific concepts, and they apply the engineering design process through participation in hands- 3 on engineering projects. Students communicate project-related information through team-based presentations, proposals, and technical reports. Workplace Readiness and NOCTI are offered as an approved Industry Certification. Students must meet Virginia Placement Test (VPT) requirements to determine eligibility for Dual Enrollment options.

Engineering Analysis and Applications II

R8451 (1 Credit)
Grades 10, 11, 12

Engineering Analysis and Applications II is the second of a possible four-course sequence that will allow students to apply the engineering design process to areas of the designed world, explore ethics in a technological world, and examine engineering systems. Students will 3 participate in STEM-based, hands-on projects as they communicate information through team based presentations, proposals, and technical reports. Workplace Readiness and NOCTI are offered as an approved Industry Certification. Students must meet Virginia Placement Test (VPT) requirements to determine eligibility for Dual Enrollment options.

Engineering Concepts and Processes III

R8452 (1 Credit)
Grades 11, 12

Engineering Concepts and Processes III is the third course of a four-course sequence that will enable students to solve real-world problems. This course focuses on building an engineering 3 team, working with case studies, managing projects, delivering formal proposals and presentations, and examining product and process trends. In addition, students continue to apply their engineering skills to determine what postsecondary education engineering pathway they want to follow. Students will participate in STEM-based, hands-on projects as they communicate information through team-based presentations, proposals, and technical reports. Students enrolling in Level III must have successfully completed Level I and Level II competencies and have permission from the course instructor. Workplace Readiness and NOCTI are offered as an approved Industry Certification. Students must meet Virginia Placement Test (VPT) requirements to determine eligibility for Dual Enrollment options.
