*Course Description:*

This course introduces students to various tools and problem-solving skills
common to most fields of engineering and technology. It emphasizes developing
both individual critical thinking and collaborative problem solving skills,
essential in today’s world of technology. Students learn the basics of the
engineering design process of product design, testing and evaluation. In teams,
students apply this process to complete a project that involves practical
problem-solving, computer simulation and product development. To assist in the
project analysis, documentation and presentation, students develop skills with
spreadsheets, word processing and presentation software.
