In the second year of EAD, we will study topics such as Sustainable Architecture & Building Green, Alternative Energy, Engineering Design Process, Reverse Engineering, Advanced CADD & Print Reading. All students in the class will conduct an Independent Study project, this is a significant project for students to focus on something of their personal interest and related to their future goals. During this project students will explain, demonstrate, and create a portfolio illustrating how they have met all of the standards of this program. The second year of this program also allows for “Live Work” jobs, which is where we work with local businesses to assist them in completing CADD projects for them.
All projects in this class have a sketching, 2D & 3D CAD and a hands-on 3D model component to them. Examples of projects: Alternative Energy, Bridge & Airplane Design, Independent study project… etc
Students will either construct 3D models by hand, use the 3D printer or the Laser Engraver.
