Year 1 Introduction to Engineering Design
This course provides students with opportunities to be creative and to apply decision-making and problem-solving skills to design problems. Students use powerful computer hardware and software (Inventor) to develop 3-D models or solid renderings of objects. Using a Computer-Aided Design System, students learn the product design process by creating, analyzing, rendering, and producing a model. Students will learn elementary engineering concepts and will explore career opportunities in design engineering as they develop portfolios to display and present their designs.
