Description:

Introduction to Engineering DesignTM (IED) is a high school level course that is appropriate for 9th or 10th grade students who are interested in design and engineering. The major focus of the IED course is to expose students to design process, research and analysis, teamwork, communication methods,  global and human impacts, engineering standards, and technical documentation. IED gives students the opportunity to develop skills and understanding of course concepts through activity-, project-, and problem-based (APPB) learning. Used in combination with a teaming approach, APPB-learning challenges students to continually hone their interpersonal skills, creative abilities and understanding of the design process. It also allows students to develop strategies to enable and direct their own learning, which is the ultimate goal of education.

 

The course assumes no previous knowledge, but students should be concurrently enrolled in college preparatory mathematics and science. Students will employ engineering and scientific concepts in the solution of engineering design problems. In addition, students use a state of the 3D solid modeling design software package to help them design solutions to solve proposed problems. Students will develop problem-solving skills and apply their knowledge of research and design to create solutions to various challenges that increase in difficulty throughout the course. Students will also learn how to document their work, and communicate their solutions to their peers and members of the professional community.

 

Introduction to Engineering Design™ is one of three foundation courses in the Project Lead The Way® high school pre-engineering program. The course applies and concurrently develops secondary level knowledge and skills in mathematics, science, and technology.

 

The course of study includes:

 

·         Design Process

·         Modeling

·         Sketching

·         Measurement, Statistics, and Applied Geometry

·         Presentation Design and Delivery

·         Engineering Drawing Standards

·         CAD Solid Modeling

·         Reverse Engineering

·         Consumer Product Design Innovation

·         Marketing

·         Graphic Design

·         Engineering Ethics

·         Virtual Design Teams

 

The course will be field tested during the 2006 – 2007 school year. The revised course will be published for the use by the Project Lead The Way® network for the 2007 – 2008 school year.
