Why Choose Introduction to Engineering?

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.
