Engineering (Industrial and Engineering Systems)

Prerequisites Course and Description Credit Skill Level
None Intro To Engneering Design
The major focus of IED is the design process and its application. Through hands-on projects, students apply engineering standards and document their work. Students use industry standard 3d modeling Software to help the design solutions to solve proposed problems, document their work using an engineer’s notebook, and communicate solutions to peers. There is a $15 fee for the class.
1 Beginner
None Robotics 1
Students will design and build robots, and program them in C and Android-based programming to preform specific tasks.  Topics include gear ratios, motor control, torque, friction, sensors, timing, program loops, logic gates, propulsion systems, and designing/3D printing of complex parts.  Topics will apply directly to FIRST Tech Challenge Robotics competition.

Robotics 1 Robotics 2
Exploration of robotics where students research, design, engineer, build, and program a variety of robotic solutions as part of a project team.  CAD modeling and 3D printing are emphasized, along with the documentation of the engineering design process.
1 Advanced
IED Aerospace Engineering
Students will be introduced to designing, building and flying Small Unmanned Aerial Systems (SUAS). This course investigates physics and principles of flight, components of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, material science, manufacturing, 3D printing, and flight operations including autopilot programming and developing a flight plan, as well as current and potential Federal Aviation Administration regulations.  Students will also be introduced to UAS applications such as aerial photography, crop health monitoring, inspections, aerial mapping, and other emerging SUAS technologies.
1 Advanced
IED Digital Design, and Production
Students will develop skills using computer software programs such as Photoshop, CorelDraw, SolidWorks and Autodesk Inventor to design 2D and 3D projects.  Student will produce professional quality projects using the Epilog Laser Engraver, Flash Forge 3D printer, and Torchmate CNC Mill.  Students will be tasked with Manufacturing custom parts for local customers and fundraising items for PHS.
