Engineering Fundamentals Pathway

The Engineering Fundamentals Pathway is designed for students aspiring to pursue a degree program or a career in the engineering field.

This pathway provides dual enrollment students with the opportunity to gain practical design experience using basic models and simulations.

There are two Aeronautics pathways available:

Available to students taking Dual Enrollment courses online only.

This course is an introduction to the interdisciplinary aspects of the engineering of aerospace systems. It is a project-based course, demonstrating how the engineering profession is a multi-disciplinary field. Students are involved in an array of conceptual exercises, simple design activities, and projects dealing with engineering in aerospace-related areas.

Pre-Reqs: MATH 142 or MATH 143 or Qualifying score on the Mathematics Skills Assessment

Credits: 3

This is an introductory course in computer programming for scientists and engineers. This course introduces students to aspects of algorithm design and software development including specification of the problem, design of a solution, implementation of code, and testing. This course applies a problem-solving approach to developing algorithms. Algorithms are implemented and utilize the following topics: data types and related operations; looping; decision; input/output; functions; arrays; and files.

Pre-Reqs: ENGR 101 or ESCI 105

Credits: 3

Students will use free-hand pencil sketching and CAD as tools for graphical communication of engineering designs. Topics include the standard form for design graphics and view layout, orthographic projection, section and auxiliary views, dimensioning, and tolerancing.

Pre-Reqs: ENGR 101

Credits: 3

This course is an introduction to microeconomic principles, problems, and policies as well as basic financial principles such as time value of money, capital budgeting, and cost of capital. The course will provide the engineering graduate with the tools needed for success in the workplace.

Pre-Reqs: None

Credits: 3

This course is a study of graphs and functions; limits and continuity; differentiation and integration of algebraic and elementary trigonometric functions; applications of first and second derivatives.

Pre-Reqs: MATH 142 or MATH 143 or Qualifying score on the Mathematics Skills Assesment

Credits: 4

This course explores vectors and scalar quantities, kinematics, Newton’s Law of Motion, work, work-energy, conversion of energy, conversion of momentum, center of mass and its motion, torque, equilibrium and orbital motion.

Pre-Reqs: MATH 241

Credits: 3

The purpose of this course is to provide the engineering student with the ability to analyze static equilibrium problems in a logical manner. It is designed to provide assistance to the student for preparation in all solid mechanics courses. Emphasis is placed on an understanding of principles employed in the solution of problems rather than reliance on a rote process of substitution in numerous formulas.

Pre-Reqs: PHYS 150 and ENGR 101 or ESCI 105

Credits: 3

Available to students at our high school partnership locations.
