Students will also utilize a variety of CAD commands, geometric construction, orthographic and isometric projection, conventional practices in drawing, dimensioning, sectioning, auxiliary view systems, pictorial systems, and architectural drawings using the Engineering Design Process. Students will also examine the impact of this area of study on related industries and society. Students will gain and apply relevant safety knowledge, complete and discuss academic and career plans, and apply appropriate academic content knowledge. Students will be eligible, upon successful completion of this course, to take an exit exam and gain college credit through an articulation agreement with Quinsigamond Community College. Students will be assessed using proficiency standards in preparation for the attainment of a Certificate of Proficiency. (COP) This course is a part of the Chapter 74 approved program and incorporates standards from the Engineering Technology Vocational Framework. EDF is a prerequisite for Engineering Design and Manufacturing. As an honors level course, the content will be covered at an accelerated pace.
