Course Outcomes - Level 2

  1. Students will understand and be able to differentiate between the concepts of force, work, energy and power in mechanical, fluid, electrical and thermal systems.
  2. Students will be able to perform calculations to determine the amount of work, energy or power of various mechanical, fluid, electrical or thermal systems.
  3. Students will know and be able to use the engineering design cycle to design a prototype of a solution to a power, energy and/or transportation problem.
  4. Students will be able to identify, describe, and perform basic calculations for simple machines (e.g. levers, gears, pulleys, hydraulic systems).
  5. Students will be able to use equipment and materials to perform basic power and energy experiments.
  6. Students will understand basic terminology related to construction technologies and be able to identify and describe the basic components of a structure.
  7. Students will know how to use tools and equipment to process various materials in order to design, build and test a structure as a solution to a technological problem.
  8. Students will be able to use simulation software to design, build and test a structure as a solution to a technological problem.
