Engineering: Capstone and Materials
The capstone engineering program is available as a second semester course. This program consists of two courses: Capstone Engineering and Materials Science. The capstone course is the engineering pathway completer course and will require students to develop original solutions to valid open-ended technical problems by applying the engineering design process.
- The development and use of materials will continue to be a major source of job opportunities in today's marketplace. This course provides students with the basic principles and skills of various materials used in engineering.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Does class have concurrent enrollment?
Yes, one of the four class is also concurrent enrollment for a total of 3.0 college credits. Engineering Capstone is 3.0 credits CCET 2620 - 3D Design is 3.0 credits.
What is the schedule commitment for the Engineering: Capstone Program?
The program is one year long consisting of four courses that are each 1.0 high school credits. This means that the student is at the JATC for two class periods on A Days and B Days. The students can be bused to and from their home high schools or they can drive in personal cars.
How is it different than a normal math or science class?
Engineering is about applying math and science to solve real world problems. In the Engineering program we will be learning how to apply the math and science the students are already familiar with on real world problems and with hands-on projects.
