    (ECHS ONLY)

     

    Foundations of Engineering and Technology is the introductory course for all Georgia Engineering and Technology Education pathways. This course provides students with opportunities to develop fundamental technological literacy as they learn about the history, systems, and processes of invention and innovation.
     


     
    48.5420092                 *SURVEY OF ENGINEERING GRAPHICS
     
    (Career Academy Only)           

     

    Survey of Engineering Graphics is a one-credit course designed to further the development of student knowledge and skills in the Engineering Drawing and Design field. Students learn to illustrate more complex objects using the Computer-Aided Drafting (CAD) system and develop skills in dimensioning, tolerancing, pictorials, sections, auxiliary views, and intersection and developments. While the term computer-aided design (CAD) does not appear in each competency, CAD tools and software should be used extensively throughout the course. The standards are aligned with the drafting and design standards in Georgia’s technical colleges, thus helping students qualify for advanced placement should they continue their education at the postsecondary level. Further, the standards are aligned with the national standards of the American Design Drafting Association (ADDA). Students who successfully complete this and other drafting courses should be prepared to take the Drafter Certification Examination from the ADDA. Competencies for the co-curricular student organization, SkillsUSA, are integral components of both the core employability skills standards and the technical skills standards. SkillsUSA activities should be incorporated throughout instructional strategies developed for the course.

    (Career Academy Only)              

     

    3D Modeling and Analysis is a one-credit course designed to further the development of student knowledge and skills in engineering and related mechanical design drafting areas. Emphasis is placed on 3-D working and assembly drawings including rendering and animation. While the term computer-aided design (CAD) does not appear in each competency, CAD tools and software should be used extensively throughout the course. The standards are aligned with the drafting and design standards in Georgia’s technical colleges, thus helping students qualify for advanced placement should they continue their education at the postsecondary level.

    21.4510092                 *ENERGY AND POWER TECHNOLOGY

    (Career Academy Only)

     

    Energy and Power Technology is the introductory course that explores the relationship between force, work, energy, and power. Students study the characteristics, availability, conversion, control, transmission, and storage of energy and power. Students will explore and apply the principles of electrical, fluid, and mechanical power. Students will research renewable, non-renewable, and inexhaustible resources and conservation efforts. Students will develop an awareness of the many careers that exist in energy and related technologies.
