2210CEFRHS | FRCC Mechanical Design 1 (EGT101): 5 credits/3 college credits – grades 10, 11, 12 – Fine & Applied Arts – no prerequisite

EGT1101 - Principles of Engineering and Technology is designed to introduce students to the STEM cluster for students interested in learning more about careers in engineering and technology. This course covers basic skills required for engineering and technology fields of study. Upon completion of this course, students are able to identify and explain the steps in the engineering design process. They can evaluate an existing engineering design, use fundamental sketching and engineering drawing techniques, complete simple design projects using the engineering design process, and effectively communicate design solutions to others.     

 

2221CEFRHS | FRCC 3D Modeling-Engineering Drafting 2 (CAD2455/CAD2459): 10 credits – grades 10, 11, 12 – Fine & Applied Arts - no prerequisite, Fee $25

CAD2455 - Introduces parametric feature-based solid modeling 3D concepts to build confidence in 3D thinking and progresses to three-dimensional parameters. This course provides instruction on how to construct, modify, and manage complex parts in 3D space as well as to produce 2D drawings from the 3D models.

CAD2459 - Focuses on advanced techniques for translating conceptual design into manufacturing reality. Projects include parts, assemblies, drawings, bill of materials, revisions, communication, time management, and task prioritization. Course emphasis is on sheet metal, weldments, molds (casting and injection), leverage, large assemblies, advanced motion study, and miscellaneous other advanced commands and techniques. 

At FCHS: This course is the alternative vehicle design course. Students will design, build, and compete with an electric racecar.

 

2294 | Work-based Learning: Manufacturing: Various credits – grades 9, 10, 11,12 – Elective – no prerequisite

Students build on prior knowledge and skills in the program of study to further develop and apply employability and technical skills that prepare them for success in future career and postsecondary education.
