Introduction to Engineering Design I & II (IED)

Students dig deep into the engineering design process, applying math, science, and engineering standards to hands-on projects.  They work both individually and in teams to design solutions to a variety of problems using 3-D modeling software and use an engineering notebook to document their work.

Prerequisites: for IED II – must have IED I & Teacher Approval

Credit – 1 Unit

Civil Engineering & Architecture (CEA)

Civil engineers and architects design, build, and protect the infrastructure that modern society depends on.  This course will introduce students to the planning, designing, surveying, and construction of today’s infrastructure such as bridges, houses, dams, highways, and more.  Opportunities for students to develop skills through projects, the latest CAD systems, and cutting edge survey equipment will be presented.  Examples of projects include:  building models of balsa wood bridges and testing them for strength, surveying, topographic models, and drawing house plans and topographic surveys.

3Ds Animation I & II

You will use 3ds Max software to visualize virtual reality designs such as buildings and machines. You will transfer designs created in other programs into 3ds MAX to add lighting and materials then render to still image or movie format.  Prepare to be entertained and fascinated by the awesome power at your fingertips. With 3ds Max you can create 3D places and characters, objects and subjects of any type.  You can arrange them in settings and environments to build the scenes for your movie or visualization.  You can animate the objects and characters, set them in motion, make them speak, sing and dance or kick and fight.
