Students in the Hughes STEM Engineering Pathway acquire knowledge and skills in problem solving, teamwork and innovation.
Students explore STEM careers as they participate in a project-based learning process, designed to challenge and engage the natural curiosity and imagination of high school students. Teams design and test their ideas using modeling, automation, robotics, mechanical and computer control systems, while exploring energy and the environment.
Engineering Pathway courses will introduce students to fundamental engineering concepts and scientific principles associated with engineering design applications. Topics may include mechanisms, energy, statics, materials, and kinematics. Additionally students will learn material properties and electrical, control and fluid power systems.
Students will learn to apply problem solving, research and design skills to create solutions to engineering challenges.
