The Engineering Academy is open to students from all three high schools through an application process. Students who participate will travel to the Emerald Campus. 11th graders who complete year one of the Academy may be eligible to take Engineering 1181 and 1182 at Ohio State during their 12th grade year. The course is focused on substantial projects that require group effort to complete. The focus is to develop the problem solving, mathematical, analytical and communication skills needed to succeed in engineering.
      
 
 
ENGINEERING ACADEMY COURSES 
FUNDAMENTALS OF ENGINEERING – 301
Prerequisite: Algebra II or concurrently taking Pre-calculus
Graded: Weighted Grade: 11-12
Time Frame: Year Credit: 1.00
This survey course of engineering exposes students to major concepts in they’ll encounter in a
postsecondary engineering course of study.  Students employ engineering and scientific concepts in the
solution of engineering design problems.  The students will develop strong problem solving skills, from
design through prototyping and testing. An emphasis will be placed on documenting and communicating
solutions.

COMPUTERS, ELECTRONICS AND CONTROL SYSTEMS – 302
Prerequisite: Application                  
Graded: Weighted Grade: 11-12
Time Frame: Year Credit: 1.00
This course focuses on the fundamentals of electrical engineering and electronics. From circuit design to
integrated circuits to programming microcontrollers, this course focuses on developing students’ skill in
working with modern digital electronic systems. Students employ their skills in a series of projects, with a
pair of larger projects tying concepts together. Students also develop their computer programming skills.

CAPSTONE COURSE: ENGINEERING RESEARCH; INTERSHIP II – 303
Prerequisite: Application                  
Graded: Conventionally Grade: 11-12
Time Frame: Year Credit: 1.00
This course will include a large, year-long project that will tie together the concepts learned in the
Engineering Academy. Students will develop a personal portfolio documenting their work. The course will
also include work with a professional on researching or developing a solution for a real-world engineering
problem. The course will develop students engineering, computer programming and presentation skills.
