Concepts of Engineering and Technology


What if you could do the impossible? Engineers understand a lot of things, but the word impossible definitely isn’t one of them. Through Concepts of Engineering and Technology, you’ll learn how the momentum of science is continually propelling engineers in new directions towards a future full of insight and opportunity. This course explores the different branches of engineering and how problem-solving, sketching, collaboration, and experimentation can change the very fiber of our human lives. This ever-increasing knowledge can also lead to serious ethical dilemmas and the need to discuss where the boundaries of science lie (or even if there should be boundaries). By examining astounding engineering feats and complex ongoing issues, you too will begin to question whether the word "impossible" really exists.

Special Notes:

A stable Internet connection is needed for this class.


Are you interested in engineering and technological careers but you are not quite sure which route you want to pursue? Then Concepts of Engineering and Technology is the class for you. During your time in this class you will explore the background of engineering and how engineers think through problems in order to solve them. You will also be introduced to the wonders of civil, mechanical, chemical, biological, and other engineering field. So buckle up and prepare yourself for an exciting semester.

If there are books and materials for this course, they can be purchased from our Online Bookstore.

Student Feedback

It was a lot of fun, and I learned a lot. It has helped me learn a lot about the different fields of engineering and what I could or would like to do. It has helped me to narrow down the fields that I am interested in and which collages would be best for going into those careers. Thank you for class!
