IED - Intro to Engineering Design 






    Introduction to Engineering DesignTM (IED) is a high school level course
    that is appropriate for 9th or 10th grade students who are interested
    in Design and Engineering. The major focus of the 
    IED course is to
    expose students to design process, engineering standards, research and
    analysis, technical documentation, global and human impacts,
    communication methods, and teamwork.

    IED gives students the opportunity to develop skills and understanding
    of course concepts through activities-, projects-, and problem-based (APPB) learning.
    Used in combination with a teaming approach, APPB-learning challenges students
    to continually hone their interpersonal skills, creative abilities and understanding
    of the design process. It also allows students to develop strategies to enable
    and direct their own learning, which is the ultimate goal of education.

    The course assumes no previous knowledge, but students should be concurrently
    enrolled in college preparatory mathematics and science.
    Students will employ engineering and scientific concepts in the solution
    of engineering design problems. In addition, students use a state of the 3D solid
    modeling design software package to help them design solutions to solve proposed
    problems. Students will develop problem-solving skills and apply their knowledge
    of research and design to create solutions to various challenges that increase
    in difficulty throughout the course. Students will also learn how to document their work
    and communicate their solutions to their peers and members of the professional community. 

    Introduction to Engineering Design™ is one of three foundation courses
    in the Project Lead The Way® high school pre-engineering program.
    The course applies and concurrently develops secondary level knowledge
    and skills in mathematics, science, and technology.
    This class is eligible for college credit from RIT if course completion criteria
    and final test criteria is met.



    As students using the AutoCAD program of Inventor 2021, you are able to download this program
    to your home computer by going to the Autodesk web site and finding the education downloads.
    This is free to you and the student with a 3 year licensing.  This enables you to work from home by transporting your files with a flash drive.
