ENR 011 - Introduction to Engineering Design

This is the first semester of a year-long high school course through Project Lead The Way (PLTW), which is a foundation course in the PLTW Engineering Program. In IED-A students are introduced to the engineering profession and a common approach to the solution of engineering problems, an engineering design process. Utilizing the activity project-problem-based (APB) teaching and learning pedagogy, students will progress from completing structured activities to solving open-ended projects and problems that require them to develop planning, documentation, communication, and other professional skills. Through both individual and collaborative team activities, projects, and problems, students will solve problems as they practice common engineering design and development protocols such as project management and peer review. Students will develop skills in technical representation and documentation of design solutions according to accepted technical standards, and they will use current 3D design and modeling software to represent and communicate solutions. In addition the development of computational methods that are commonly used in engineering problem solving, including statistical analysis and mathematical modeling, are emphasized. Ethical issues related to professional practice and product development are also presented.
