Engineering is one of the top desired careers in many companies. These businesses are always in need of creative minds that can problem solve on their feet and help the company save money, solve issues, and expand their reach. If you are considering a career in Engineering, this course will help you explore what it takes to be an engineer. We will explore facets of mechanical, structural, civil, and electrical engineering in a hands-on, minds-on approach.
Excursions at UC Berkeley – Students in this program have visited Circuit Launch, an innovative shared electronic and prototype lab, woodshop and additive manufacturing facility, the Chabot Space Center/NASA Ames Visitor Center, and Intel headquarters.
Meet your instructor
Instructor - Courses are taught by accomplished and passionate faculty recruited from many area colleges, universities and professional forums. Each faculty member is selected for their subject area expertise and proven ability to both challenge and captivate students.
Topics you'll explore
Students will explore the design process and a standard problem solving approach used by engineers. They will also utilize a series of design challenges to test and gather data on the efficiency of our designs. Projects include building a scale model structure compliant with code, zoning, and budget requirements as well as creating an artificial limb.
Students will think on their feet as they work against time, budget, gravity, and limited resources to complete mini design projects covering different areas of engineering. The final project will be in the field of their choice so they can further explore a specific area.
Meet with successful professionals and experts in the fields of engineering and technology to learn more about careers and jobs in this field, and have the opportunity to ask questions and learn firsthand what it’s like to work as an engineer. This insight helps students reflect on which areas within the field of engineering is right for them. Students in this program have had the opportunity to tour Circuit Launch, an innovative shared electronic and prototype lab, woodshop and additive manufacturing facility, the Chabot Space Center/NASA Ames Visitor Center, and Intel headquarters.
