Description Technology Requirements
Engineering Instrumentation & Analysis is a two-semester course that introduces students to major fields of engineering through 5-9 week units that feature research and/or design projects focused on specific engineering disciplines. Through the projects, students become familiar with standard engineering instrumentation used to acquire data, various strategies and tools for analyzing data, and fundamental concepts from each of the engineering disciplines that is investigated. Technical communication (oral and written) is formally taught at the beginning of the course and emphasized throughout the remainder of the course.

Target Audience: 10th – 12th grades
