Students will learn the process involved in designing and executing an engineering project. The project will pertain to a new technology in the field of engineering. This project will include a definition of the project, a time schedule of the project, tracking and execution of project tasks, and a final presentation. This presentation will include visual representation, experimentation, and oratory. Software technologies, including web design, will be included in the visual representation of the presentation. The students will perform one or two projects per year. The size and scale of the project(s) will be dependent upon the size of the class.
In this full year course the student will need to demonstrate the knowledge needed to create basic architectural drawings. The course will require that the student create two-dimensional schematic drawings. The course is designed to impart to each student a basic knowledge of the principles of design and elements of architectural drawing. Students are challenged to become more proficient in their ability to conceptualize, draw, and think independently. Most assignments are to be completed in class, but additional projects or assignments may be given that require the student to work outside the normal class period. Self-discipline is emphasized.
Digital Electronics is a course of study in applied digital logic. The course is patterned after the first semester course in Digital Electronics taught in two-year and four-year colleges. Students will study the application of electronic logic circuits and devices and apply Boolean logic to the solution of the problems. Such circuits are found in watches, calculators, video games, computers, and thousands of other devices. The use of smart circuits is present in virtually all engineering technology. Using Circuit Maker, the industry standard, students will test and analyze simple and complex digital circuitry.
The student taking this full year course will learn the process of design development of a product and how a model of that product is produced, analyzed and evaluated, using a Computer Aided Design System. Various design applications will be explored with discussion of possible career opportunities. This is an introductory course, which develops student problem solving skills, with emphasis placed upon the concept of developing a 3-D model or solid rendering of an object. Students focus on the application of visualization processes and tools provided by modern, state-of-the-art computer hardware and software, Autodesk Inventor.
This course is taught at Brother Rice.
