Engineering Design & Development

This capstone course allows students to design a solution to a technical problem of their choosing. They have the chance to design solutions to problems in our world. This is an engineering research course in which students will work in teams to research, design, test, and construct a solution to an open-ended engineering problem. The team presents and defends their solution to a panel of outside reviewers at the conclusion of the course. The EDD course allows students to apply all the skills and knowledge learned in previous Project Lead the Way courses. The use of 3D design software helps students design solutions to the problem their team has chosen. This course also engages students in time management and teamwork skills, a valuable skill set for students in the future. Prerequisite: Digital Electronics
