Introduction to Engineering and Technology ConceptsAdvance Path CourseIntroduction and InstructionsFor Students
IntroductionWelcome to Introduction to Engineering and Technology Concepts (IETC) Advance Path Course!IETC for Advance Path will teach you about technology, engineering, manufacturing, and even building within the Technology Departments laboratory.
How It WorksEach Unit contains a number of Chapters that are related to one another in some way.Each Chapter contains the lesson in the form of a PowerPoint Presentation, with notes to be taken in your notebook and assignments to be completed in your workbook. Make sure you have these two items before beginning. The idea is that you will read along and fill in the blanks in the notebook. Eventually, you will reach a slide that asks you to complete assignments in the workbook. There may be more than one of these slides per Chapter.Once each Chapter in a Unit is completed, you must take a quiz to continue to the next Unit.
About the LabAfter Unit Seven, you will be designing a project to be built in the lab. You should always be reading the instructions at the beginning of the chapters and throughout, but this especially true during all of Unit Eight.There are some things that must be installed on your computer and things that you need to tell you instructor, and the Chapters will tell you when and what to say.When you begin working on Unit Eight, it is preferred if you do this with another student. If another student is not available, it is something that you can accomplish alone.
