Pre-Engineering Program

The Pre-Engineering program at Bowness High School is designed to provide students with an understanding of engineering as a career path, while also providing them with skills and knowledge that will help them succeed should they pursue an education in engineering.

The program focuses on developing critical thinking, teamwork and collaboration skills in students through the direct application of math and physics skills to rigorous design-based projects.

Program Structure

Grade 10 Pre-Engineering consists of a single period option class in which students learn basic skills that will be used throughout the program, including:

  • Electronics fabrication and circuit design
  • Computer-aided design and 3D printing fabrication
  • Micro-controllers
  • Robotics
  • Design process

Grade 11 Pre-Engineering consists of a single project-based option class in which students continue to develop their skills in the topics introduced in the Grade 10 course.  A specific focus on independent research and design process skills is emphasized during project planning and development.  In this course the project scope starts to shift from teacher led to student led planning.

Grade 12 Pre-Engineering consists of a single project-based option class in which students see the culmination of the skills they have developed over the course of the program result in an advanced project.  Students build skills in project lead planning, independent research and self-directed learning as they complete an advanced project of their choosing.
