The major focus of the POE survey course of engineering exposes students to major concepts they’ll encounter in a postsecondary engineering course of study. Students employ engineering and scientific concepts in the solution of engineering design problems. They develop problem-solving skills and apply their knowledge of research and design to create solutions to various challenges, documenting their work and communicating solutions to peers and members of the professional community. Criteria for student selection: To be successful in this class, a student should be a high school junior or senior with an interest in entering the Architectural, Civil Engineering, Surveying or Construction Management fields, and they should be enrolled in, or have taken an algebra course.

SCC is currently offering the EGR 115 H01 and EGR 115A H01 courses in a hybrid format. This course has 2 lecture hours a week that will be delivered traditionally, and 3 weekly lab hours delivered traditionally and through online assignments. This course receives both high school (2 QP = AP Course) and college credit. This course was offered in Fall 2011 and will be offered again in Fall 2012.

Civil Engineering Technology and the A.A.S. Surveying Technology degree programs in the North Carolina Community College System. The major focus of the POE survey course of engineering exposes students to major concepts they’ll encounter in a postsecondary engineering course of study. Students employ engineering and scientific concepts in the solution of engineering design problems. They develop problem-solving skills and apply their knowledge of research and design to create solutions to various challenges, documenting their work and communicating solutions to peers and members of the professional community. Criteria for student selection: To be successful in this class, a student should be a high school junior or senior with an interest in entering the Architectural, Civil Engineering, Surveying or Construction Management fields, and they should be enrolled in, or have taken an algebra course.

13 Civil Surveying/CAD (Computer Aided Design) CIV 125 Spring 2012 SCC CIV 125, Civil/Surveying CAD Project Lead The Way Principles of Engineering (POE) CIV 125 Transfer Information: This class IS NOT a college transfer course, however, the credit can be used toward the SCC A.A.S. degrees in Civil Engineering, Architecture and Surveying, and they are transferable for those that choose our 2+2 Engineering Technology transfer options (those interested in this path can contact Professor Ed Spitler at SCC). SCC is currently offering the CIV 125 course in a hybrid format. This course has 1 lecture hour a week that will be delivered traditionally and 6 weekly lab hours delivered traditionally and through online assignments. This course receives both high school (1 QP = Honors Course) and college credit. CIV 125 is offered in Spring 2012.

14 The Civil Engineering Technology Curriculum The Civil Engineering Technology Curriculum provides the application of relevant theory of engineering needed by technicians to carry out planning and supervisory tasks in the construction of transportation systems, residential and commercial buildings, bridges, dams, and water and wastewater treatment systems. Course work includes the communication and computational skills required to support the fields such as materials testing, structures, estimating, project management, hydraulics, environmental technology, and surveying. Additional course work will cover the operation of computers and application software including CAD (computer-aided drafting). Graduates should quality for technician-level jobs with both public and private engineering, construction, and surveying agencies. Because the use of computers is integral to this curriculum, some courses are delivered in an online format.

15 Introduction to Engineering EGR 150/IED SCC EGR 150 Introduction to Engineering / Project Lead the Way Introduction to Engineering Design (IED) 2 Credit Hours EGR 150 H02 - MWF 9:15-10:05 Course description: This course is an overview of the engineering profession. Topics include goal setting and career assessment, ethics, public safety, the engineering method and design process, written and oral communication, interpersonal skills and team building, and computer applications. Upon completion, students should be able to understand the engineering process, the engineering profession, and utilize college resources to meet their educational goals. This course has been approved for transfer under the Comprehensive Articulation Agreement as a premajor and/or elective course requirement. The major focus of the IED course is to expose students to the design process, research and analysis, teamwork, communication methods, global and human impacts, engineering standards and technical documentation. Students use 3D solid modeling design software to help them design solutions to solve proposed problems and learn how to document their work and communicate solutions to peers and members of the professional community.

16 Introduction to Engineering EGR 150/IED SCC EGR 150 Introduction to Engineering / Project Lead the Way Introduction to Engineering Design (IED) Criteria for Student Selection: EGR 150, Intro to Engineering, is a college-transfer class guaranteed to be accepted by any of the four UNC engineering schools as meeting their "Introduction to Engineering" requirement for freshmen and sophomores. To be successful in this class, a student should be a high school junior or senior and have excellent math skills at least at the pre-calculus algebra level. They should have a real interest in pursuing an engineering degree at the university level, which means that they will be expected to complete calculus I, II, and calculus-based physics by the end of their college sophomore year. They should have the capability of working alone and in small groups on engineering projects which will require independent thought and action as well as the ability to construct working engineering models, such as model bridges or vehicles.

17 Comparison Engineering Technology (EGR 115) & (CIV 125) vs. Engineering Design (EGR 150) For detailed information, visit the comparison discussion at An engineering technology (ET) graduate is an implementer.  Emphasis of curriculum is on applying current knowledge and practices to the solution of specific technical problems and standard design problems  New graduates would most likely enter industry in construction, product design, development, testing, technical operations, or technical services and sales.  Graduates often pursue graduate study in engineering management, construction management, business administration, or similar programs.  Graduates are eligible for professional registration in most states with wide variation in licensing requirements.  More likely to get a ‘hands-on’ laboratory, testing, construction, or in-the-field job.  Coursework includes algebra, trigonometry, applied calculus and college level sciences; level of math is not as in-depth as engineering programs while focusing on applications of the engineering disciplines in the freshmen and sophomore years of study.
