Engineering Physics

Courses

High School Credits: 1

This course provides a mathematically rigorous approach to learning engineering and physics concepts and prepare for engineering higher education. Students learn how to measure force, work, resistance, energy, and power in mechanical, electronic, fluid, aerodynamic and robotic systems. Students design and complete an intensive six-week engineering system project.

Curriculum

  • The following topics are investigated in relation to their involvement with mechanical, electrical, pneumatic, hydraulic, and thermal systems: Force, Work, Rate, Resistance, Energy, Power, Machines, and Momentum. Students will develop competencies in the proper operation of the following: Analog Multimeters, Calipers, Digital Multimeters, Lasers/IR, Sensors, Newton Scales Oscilloscopes, Photometers, Pressure Gauges, Solar Panels, Stroboscopes, thermocouples, power & hand tools

Program Features

  • Enhanced by partnering with Naval Research Lab, Micron Technology, SRC, Inc., and Northrop Grumman
  • This course may be used to satisfy one credit toward the science requirement
