Home to one of Coronado’s most popular extracurricular activities, Cougars Gone Wired, Coronado’s Pre-Engineering and Industrial Technology Departments offer among Coronado’s  most unusual and interesting course options, designed, according to robotics advisor and engineering instructor Bryce McLean, to apply information and concepts learned in core classes, and to make Coronado students employable in industrial and engineering fields.

 

Course progression in the Pre-Engineering and Industrial Technology Departments is dictated by one’s concentration: Pre-Engineering, Manufacturing, Woods, or Drones. Courses under each concentration offer a multitude of both high school and college credit options; every class in the Pre-Engineering and Industrial Technology Departments serves as an elective or practical arts credit, though some engineering courses also offer computer or college credit, delineated with (C) and (CC). Classes in each concentration include,

 

Pre-Engineering

Honors Principles of Engineering (C) (CC)

Honors Introduction to Engineering Design (C) (CC)

Honors Aerospace Engineering and Technology (C) (CC)

Honors Computer Integrated Manufacturing (C) (CC)

Small Engines Technology

 

Manufacturing

Manufacturing Fabrication 1

Manufacturing Fabrication 2

 

 

Drones

UAS: Drone Flight and Licensing

UAS: Engineering, Design, and Repair

 

Woods

Woodwork 1

Woodwork 2

 

The 2018-2019 school year is the first the Drone concentration courses will be offered in the Pre-Engineering and Industrial Technology Departments. Within UAS: Drone Flight and Licensing, students are given the impressive opportunity receive their FAA Part 107 UAS commercial license, allowing the beholder to legally fly Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) for non-recreational purposes. “I’m excited that we’re putting together a program that’s going to move on into the cutting edge technology of UAVs and [will] hopefully create a career path for some students,” said McLean.

 

Though some courses may require Cougars to take prerequisite classes within the same concentration, students are free and encouraged to take classes in all four concentrations.

 

Instructors in Coronado’s Pre-Engineering and Industrial Technology Departments include not only McLean, who focuses on Engineering, but Mr. Hilty, who focuses on Woods, and Mr. Steele, who concentrates on Manufacturing and Drones.
