Engineering Sciences

Engineering student holding a project partStudents in this field will explore careers in technology, industry and engineering. Students will explore entry, semiprofessional and professional levels of careers through hands-on projects in the area of engineering (transportation, electrical, mechanical, civil, power and construction). They will also participate in class activities and projects and hear speakers in the areas of engineering technology and industrial careers. (Each course is a year long divided into two semesters.)

*Students should choose three (3) or more year long courses offered in this program in order to complete a course sequence to be considered a Concentrator
Note: These are the courses that are offered for the current school year. However, classes and locations are based on student enrollment and subject to cancelation if they do not meet minimum participation requirements.

Engineering 1-2
Robotics and engineering is for all students interested in design, engineering and robotics programming. The major focus of this course is to expose students to the design process, research and analysis, teamwork, communication methods, global and human impacts, engineering standards and technical documentation. This project-based class allows students to employ engineering and scientific concepts in the problem-solving process. Students will use state of the art 3D solid modeling design software and VEX robotics systems. Student Organization: SkillsUSA

Prerequisite: None
Credit: 1
Grade: 9-12
Location: Shadow Ridge High School


Engineering 3-4
Students will address the most contemporary technological content using informed design: activities. The students will develop a further understanding of engineering and technology, address design problems using a solution-finding process and select optimal design. Intermediate Engineering provides students with the opportunity to develop skills and understanding of course concepts through activity-, project- and problem based learning. Students will use interactive 3D design engineering software, VEX robotic systems, CNC Machining technology as well as 3D and Laser printing technologies. Student Organization: SkillsUSA

Engineering 5-6 Honors
Students will address the most contemporary technological content using "informed"design activities. The students will develop a further understanding of engineering and technology, address design problems using a solution-finding process and select optimal design. Advanced Engineering provides students with the opportunity to develop skills and understanding of course concepts through the different disciplines of engineering through activity, project and problem-based learning. Students will design and build a solar go-kart as well as building competition robots. Students will use interactive 3D design engineering software, VEX robotic systems, CNC Machining technology as well as 3D printing and Laser engraving technologies. Concepts will include the study of simple machines, circuits, mechanics of materials, static and dynamics.Student Organization: SkillsUSA

Prerequisite: Engineering 3-4
Credit: 1
Grade: 11,-12
Location: Shadow Ridge High School


Engineering 7-8 Honors
Students will use the engineering process to gather information about problems in their community and develop working solutions to these problems. The projects will span various disciplines of the engineering spectrum and will vary depending on the community’s needs. The course will follow the frame work of the EPICS program developed by ASU. Students will form design team fsor the community projects. Each group will research possible community projects and propose them to the class. For the projects that are feasible for the classroom setting the engineering process will be followed to find workable solution. All information will be documented using engineering notebooks that will follow the project to its completion. The project will also include forming relations with community leaders, engineering firms and teachers in other subjects. The class is designed to be a capstone to the engineering curriculum and combine the skills they have developed in high school in all of their classes. Students will be required to use their knowledge of computers, mathematics, technology and report writing along with sciences classes such as Physics and Chemistry. Prerequisite: Engr. 5-6 H.

Engineering Internship
This one-semester course will allow CTE students who have completed the program sequence to experience on-the-job training in a career path. Requirements include three weeks of classroom instruction in job preparation and application and 80 hours per semester of on the job field work. Artifacts include a complete portfolio, two employer evaluations, two instructor field evaluations, a final, written summary and reflection. Students must provide their own transportation to the internship site.
