Design & Drawing for Production, Materials Processing and Production Systems
of Engineering is a 1 credit, 40-week advanced course, intended for the student
interested in the Engineering field. This
course will provide you with advanced knowledge about the fields of Engineering
and Technology. The relationships
between Science, Technology, and Engineering will be studied through the use of
case studies. The case study approach will allow you to solve problems using the
same techniques used by Engineering firms. Some projects will be on the
individual basis, with larger projects in small groups.
All students are required to obtain an Internet e-mail account, and also
will be required to solicit sponsor funding for projects. All students are
required to attend the annual Technopalooza event in June 2007. Field trips will
include a visit to an Engineering firm and Engineering College.

studies will concentrate on the following five areas:
& Computer Control
this is a hands-on class, homework will not be given on a regular basis, but
each student will be required to complete short-term and long-term projects.
Grading criteria will be discussed for each project. Each project will be
require you to complete a Design Analysis which would include details regarding
your findings as well as any drawings and or design that is completed.
A detailed grading rubric will be completed for each project turned in.
All project work must be handed in on time and successfully completed for
It is required that you keep a daily notebook (a three-ring style
preferred), for notes and handouts. The binder will become a portfolio of your
work at the completion of the class, and will count for a MAJOR portion
of your final average.
