Maryland PLTW Courses For Teacher Training

ENME501 Principles of Engineering

This course provides an overview of engineering and engineering technology. Definitions and types of engineering, communication and documentation of engineering design, the design process, engineering systems, statics and strength of materials, materials and materials testing in engineering, engineering for reliability, and an introduction to dynamics/kinematics are discussed. Emphasis is placed on engineering education pedagogy, delivery methods and assessment. Does not apply to a graduate degree in Mechanical Engineering.

ENME502 Introduction to Engineering Design

Using computer modeling software, students solve design problems as they develop, create and analyze product models. Introduction to design, sketching and visualization, geometric relationships, modeling, assembly modeling, model analysis and verification, model documentation, presentation, production, and marketing are addressed. Autodesk Inventor is used as a design tool. Does not apply to a graduate degree in Mechanical Engineering.

ENME503 Digital Electronics

Develop logical thinking skills by solving problems and designing control systems. Use computer simulations to learn about the logic of electronics as to design, test and construct circuits and devices. Digital electronics fundamentals, number systems, gates, Boolean algebra, combination circuit design, adding, flip-flops, shift registers and counters, families and specifications, and microprocessors are studied. Emphasis is placed on engineering education pedagogy, delivery methods and assessment. Does not apply to a graduate degree in Mechanical Engineering
