Introduction to Engineering Technology (Sem 1) ET101
Lab Fee: $20.00 per semester
This course is designed to introduce students to the major engineering fields, including civil, mechanical, electrical, and aerospace engineering. Students will learn the basic concepts of each field and put their knowledge into practice with many hands-on projects. Typical projects include wind tunnel testing, computer networking, concrete beam testing, electrical power generation, and the annual Rube Goldberg machine design competition. This course is a prerequisite for several engineering technology track courses.
CREDIT: 0.5TYPE: RegularGRADE: 9-12
COREQUISITES: If you take this course, you must also take ET102 - Introduction to Engineering Technology (Sem 2)

Electronics/Computer Design ET230
Lab Fee: $20.00
This course is designed to give students the basic understanding of electricity and electronics. Fundamentals of basic circuitry will be discussed along with the laws and properties of electricity. Students will learn to use and develop electrical devices and troubleshoot electrical systems. The class is designed to keep students involved and will be student centered through hands-on activities such as small electrical projects. The two capstone projects will be investigating and building a personal computer, as well as, designing, building and competing in the robot hockey competition.
