Foundations of Engineering
Instructor: Mr. Carman
Classroom Ph: 4307
Engineering Design introduces aspects of problem solving, logic and relationships. This course emphasizes problem solving skills using a design development process. Models of product solutions are created analyzed and communicated using solid modeling computer design software. Topics explored include various technology systems, manufacturing processes, and
how technological advances affect society. Students are introduced to the scope, rigor, and discipline of engineering and encouraged to integrate math and science technologies into engineering problem solving processes. The East Laurens High school Engineering Program curriculum has been designed by the “Project Lead The Way” (PLTW) organization. Foundations of Engineering is also called Introduction to Engineering Design (IED) and is intended to be the first course students will take at the secondary level. The course will focus on mostly Engineering Design/Documentation, Mechanical Design Tools and Product Development.
This course will introduce the following engineering design content subjects:
Steps in the Engineering Design Process
Elements & Purpose of Design
Design Briefs and Proposals
Hand Sketches & Engineering Drawings
CAD Modeling and Decision Tools
Detailed Drawings & Rules for Dimensioning
Engineering Design Team Challenges
1.A Quad Ruled Composition Notebook (80 pages min.)
2.A Computer Thumb Drive Memory Stick (1 GB min.)
3.A Scientific Calculator
4.A Mechanical Pencil
5.A slim 3 ring binder (optional)

Technology Student Association TSA
. The Technology Student Association (TSA) is the only student organization devoted exclusively to the needs of students interested in technology and Engineering. TSA chapters take the study of STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) beyond the classroom and give students the chance to pursue academic challenges among friends with similar goals and interests.
