Course of Study
Graduation Requirements: All students must take four years of Engineering Technology in order to complete the Academy. The courses consist of Engineering Physics I, Chemistry I, Chemistry II and Engineering Physics II. Note: A $150.00 fee will be assessed to students enrolled in these classes.
401 – Engineering Physics I (H)
This course is designed to provide an understanding and introduction to the basic laws of physics and concepts of engineering through classroom and project based learning. Topics covered include: motion, mechanics, momentum, work, power, heat, and the structure of matter. Topics are treated as preparatory track for engineering in college. Projects are assigned and expected to be carried out in the prescribed amount of time.
402 – Engineering Physics II (H)
This course is designed to continue the education track of Engineering Physics I (H). This class will focus on the study of heat and thermodynamics, waves, sound, light and the electro-magnetic spectrum. Students will learn how to assemble circuits and basic computer programming. Labs and projects will center around students being able design and build something from raw materials, completing the project before the end of the year.
403 – Engineering Physics III (H)
This is a course designed to enable students to acquire a background in the subject for future college courses, to obtain jobs in science and science related fields, and to be informed, scientifically literate citizens. Topics include scientific method, properties of matter, formulas and equations, atomic structure, the period table, solutions, equilibrium, acids, bases, salts, and oxidation – reduction. Lab activities will focus on chemical engineering preparing students to enter engineering in college.
404 – Engineering Physics IV (H)
Engineering Physics IV(H) will continue the education track of Engineering Physics 1, 2, and 3. The students will focus on Magnetism, Induced Voltages Inductance, Self-Inductance, Light-reflection and refraction of Light. Labs and projects will reinforce the previous three years of study.
