Engineering Design and Development

926350  HONORS ENGINEERING DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT

Grade 12                                                                                              1.00 Credit/Spring Semester

 Apply engineering principles and practices of the preceding courses to real-world problems. Design and construct the engineering solution to an engineering problem in teams of two to four. Teams will identify an issue and then research, design, and test a solution, ultimately presenting their project to a panel of engineers. Utilize professional skills developed to document the design process to standards.

REQUIRED:   Successful completion of the Honors Engineering Design and Honors Principles of Engineering, Honors Digital Electronics, Honors Computer Integrated Manufacturing and Aerospace Engineering and submission of a CTC program application.

NOTE: This is a dual-enrollment course which allows students the opportunity to earn college credits while concurrently earning credits toward their high school diploma.   The cost to take advantage of the dual enrollment option is currently $150.00, which is approximately a $450 savings.


This capstone course is designed to have students work in teams of two to four. Students will design and construct the engineering solution to an engineering problem. These problems can be student generated, part of national challenges or competitions or taken from a database of engineering problems. The major goal of this course is to apply the engineering principles and practices of the preceding courses to real-world problems. Students will also maintain a journal that will be included in their electronic portfolio. Each team will be responsible for delivering progress reports and making final presentations of their project to an outside review panel. The completed electronic portfolio will be a valuable asset and document for student to have when applying for college. This course is an honors level course in the pre-engineering program. Students are to complete a college preparatory sequence of courses in mathematics. Competencies (content standards) are defined by Project Lead the Way.
