Pathway: Engineering

Grades: 10 – 12

Credits: 5-8

Location: Science and Technology Centre

Perquisite: Beginning Engineering


A state-of-the-art lab helps students investigate various aspects of the engineering field.

Students will use hands-on learning equipment to conduct meaningful engineering investigations that emphasize mathematics and science.

Students are then able to choose a pathway of their choice and complete the learning objectives associated with it.  The pathways are ELECTRICAL-Electrical Sensors, Computer Control 1; CIVIL-Thermal 1, Pneumatics 2; MECHANICAL-Mechanisms 2, Computer Aided Manufacturing.

Instruction covers the fundamentals of engineering as well as a focus in ROBOTICS 2AC/DC 2CAD 2CNC 2 and SOLAR CONCEPTS.

Students will work in teams to research, design, and create a solution to an open-ended engineering challenge. They will complete a major design project and showcase it to a team of real engineers.

In addition, this course will cultivate student’s knowledge of engineering so as to determine whether engineering and technology are the career fields they desire.
