Engineering is the study of how science, mathematics, construction and design can be connected together in order to solve key issues. Introduction to Engineering offers students a gateway into understanding how these fields work together, and the areas in which they can be applied, such as in bridge building, city planning, architecture, the design of aircraft and the manufacture of automobiles.
What You’ll Learn
In Introduction to Engineering, students will be able to take their first steps into the fields of Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Environmental Engineering and Robotics. Through practical project lessons, students will discover how important principles of engineering, such as thermodynamics, determine the construction and design of products, objects and services.
How You’ll Learn: Time to Shine
In our Time to Shine project lessons, students are presented with teamwork challenges to design such engineering feats as stable bridges, high towers, working windmills and self-propelled miniature vehicles like cars and airplanes. Through taking part in these fun, communicative and collaborative challenges, students will learn about fundamental engineering principles.
What You’ll Take Way
Our Introduction to Engineering students will feel better prepared to study any Engineering discipline in the future. They will additionally develop an improved appreciation of the practical applications of the science and mathematical subjects they already study, through seeing the use of these disciplines in real-world situations. Students will also develop broader 21st century skills, such as communication skills, collaboration skills, critical thinking skills, research skills and presentation skills.
