A new engineering elective will be available with the 2018-2019 academic year. A 4-year pathway program will expose students to engineering and prepare them for engineering and technology courses in college. The elective courses will provide students with hands-on projects in engineering design, mechanics, robotics, computer integrated manufacturing, civil construction and design, alternative energy, bioengineering, and aerospace engineering.
The program will be a partnership with industry and university members to design courses and curriculum that will enhance MST classes and apply critical thinking in the development of solutions to real-world problems. Students will achieve basic understanding of engineering principles and the engineering design process, create a capstone design project, and potentially gain work-related experience through internships and be prepared to attend an engineering college.
The first course, to be offered during 2018-19, is Engineering Design:
