ALEC 115: Principles of Engineering (POE)

Prereqs: ALEC 105, Introduction To Engineering Design is a prerequisite
This course is the second foundational course taught in the Project Lead the Way pre-engineering curriculum.  Students that complete this course will be certified to teach both foundational courses in any secondary PLTW pre-engineering program across the country.  This certification gives UNL STS students in the ALEC department a rigorous STEM skill set.  Once the course is completed the credit will be reverse transferred back to the community college to fulfill the STEM skill requirement of the 2+2 articulation agreements established with UNL and the ALEC department.
Through problems that engage and challenge, students explore a broad range of engineering topics, including mechanisms, the strength of structures and materials, and automation. Students develop skills in problem solving, research, and design while learning strategies for design process documentation, collaboration, and presentation.
