Prerequisite: Intro to Engineering Design, completion of Algebra II or Geometry, and Recommended: Physics or concurrent enrollment
Grade Level: 10-12
POE is a course that helps students understand the field of engineering and engineering technology. Exploring various technology systems and manufacturing processes help students learn how engineers use math, science and technology in an engineering solving process to benefit people. The course is heavily project-based and includes machine control through computer programming. Students should have a strong math background and show an interest in the STEM fields (Science, Math, Engineering and Technology). Although highly recommended for serious science/math students the engineering courses cannot count for a science or math credit. This course does however correspond to EGT410 in the DMACC course guide.
