ALEC 105: Introduction to Engineering design (IED)

Prereqs: This course is the first course in the Project Lead the Way pre-engineering program and requires no prerequisite.
This is a secondary course training option for pre service teachers in Skilled and Technical Sciences. It is a STEM skill requirement for the 2+2 articulation agreement with various community colleges across the state of Nebraska.  By allowing pre-service teachers to complete this course, students can reverse transfer the credit back to the community colleges to enforce rigorous training needs in the STEM field for future STS teachers coming out of the ALEC department.
Students dig deep into the engineering design process, applying math, science, and engineering standards to hands - on projects. They work both individually and in teams to design solutions to a variety of problems using 3d modeling software, and use an engineering notebook to document their work.
This course is a prerequisite for: ALEC 115
Credit Hours: 4
Course Format: Lab 60
