ENGINEERING & TECHNOLOGY
ENGINEERING & TECHNOLOGY 1 1 CREDIT
Engineering & Technology 1 (Foundations of Engineering and Technology) is a broad based laboratory course that explores topics from the technological systems (production, communication, transportation, bio-related). This course provides study and analysis of materials, products, problems, uses, and developments relative to the technological world. Students will study one area for a set number of days and then rotate to another module. Twelve modules must be completed by the end of the class.
ENGINEERING & TECHNOLOGY 2 1 CREDIT
Pre-requisite: ENGINEERING & TECHNOLOGY 1
Engineering & Technology 2 (Technology Design) students will explore modules not covered in Engineering & Technology 1 and explore other modules in greater details. This course is an exploration of various areas of technology. Students will study one area for a select number of days and then rotate to another module. Twelve modules must be completed by the end of the class.
ENGINEERING & TECHNOLOGY 3 1 CREDIT
Pre-requisite: ENGINEERING & TECHNOLOGY 2
Engineering & Technology 3 (Advance Design) is an in-depth study and integration of digital video, computer aided design, architectural CAD, animation, and desktop publishing.
ENGINEERING & TECHNOLOGY 4 1 CREDIT
Pre-requisite: ENGINEERING & TECHNOLOGY 3
Engineering & Technology 4 (Special Problems in Engineering & Technology) students learn concepts of robotics and automated manufacturing by creating three-dimensional designs with modeling software and producing models of their designs.
ENGINEERING & TECHNOLOGY 5 1 CREDIT
Pre-requisite: Instructor Approval; Engineering & Technology 4
Engineering & Technology 4 (Special Topics in Engineering & Technology) students will cover in-depth concepts in a laboratory-based course designed to study a technological system or topic, and/or a recent technological advancement. This study should include how this advancement affects society and/or the environment. A culminating project integrating one or more of the seven contexts of technological literacy and the Kentucky Core Content is encouraged. It should include research, design, construction, analysis, writing, and presenting. Instruction should be enriched through participation in Kentucky Technology Student Association.
