Coursework

Introduction to Engineering

Students dig deep into the engineering design process, applying math, science, and engineering standards to hands-on projects like designing a new toy or improving an existing product.

Civil Engineering & Architecture

From exploring structural engineering to transportation systems, environmental sustainability, and construction management, this curriculum will engage you in hands-on projects and real-world applications.

Principles of Engineering

Students explore a broad range of engineering topics including mechanisms, the strength of structure and materials, and automation, and then they apply what they know to take on challenges like designing a self-powered car.

Engineering Capstone

This program offers an exciting opportunity to apply engineering knowledge to real-world challenges. From selecting and proposing projects to developing technical skills, managing projects, and presenting solutions, students will engage in hands-on learning experiences.
