Prerequisite: Computer Integrated Manufacturing or Civil Engineering and Architecture
This capstone course enables students to apply what they have learned in academic and pre engineering courses as they complete challenging self-directed projects. Students work in teams to design and build solutions to authentic engineering problems. An engineer from the school’s partnership team mentors each student team. Students keep journals of notes, sketches, mathematical calculations and scientific research. Students teams make progress reports to their peers, mentor and instructor and exchange constructive criticism and consultation. At the end of the course, teams present their research paper and defend their projects to a panel of engineers, business leaders, and engineering college educators for professional review and feedback. This course equips student with the independent study skills they will need in post secondary education and careers in engineering and engineering technology.
