Building Engineering Pathways through Engineering Statics Courses

Organization:
North Carolina State University
Amount:
$64,767.86
Program Area:
Golden LEAF Opportunities for Work in Advanced Manufacturing
County of Applicant:
Wake
Description:

NC State, along with participating community colleges, will use this GLOW-AM grant to construct an essential first step in expanding availability of engineering courses for the NC Community College System leading to a more effective AS to BS in engineering degree articulation pathway. A collaborative team comprised of UNC engineering staff and NCCCS faculty will design critical course content and materials which will allow community college partners to expand access to freshman and sophomore engineering courses for community college students. This effort will lead to the development of a Statics course which represents a core building block in the AS Engineering program and is also required in a wide range of aerospace related engineering disciplines (aerospace, materials science, mechanical, civil, etc.) across the four UNC engineering universities (ECU, NCSU, NCA&T, UNCC). This course along with courses developed by East Carolina University will provide a cost effective vehicle for students to complete important prerequisite courses prior to transferring from the NCCCS AS program to BS program in the UNC System.
