Course Overview

This one-semester course is intended to help you familiarize yourself with engineering systems
and technologies. This course has thirteen lessons organized into three units. Each unit has a
Unit Activity and each lesson contains one or more Lesson Activities.

This course will cover the evolution of engineering and technology, careers in engineering, and
engineering systems and technologies.

You will submit the Unit Activity documents to your teacher, and you will grade your work in the
Lesson Activities by comparing them with given sample responses. The Unit Activities
(submitted to the teacher), and the Lesson Activities (self-checked) are the major components
of this course. There are other assessment components, namely the mastery test questions that
feature along with the lesson; the pre- and post-test questions that come at the beginning and
end of the unit, respectively; and an end-of-semester test. All of these tests are a combination of
simple multiple-choice questions and technology enhanced (TE) questions.
