The course is team taught by technol­ogy faculty from several disciplines at the college with frequent guest speakers from local industry, government agencies, and other educational institutions. The course is composed of modules containing projects based on problems and challenges faced by local industry and case studies drawn from technology education resources such as NETEC, the South Carolina Advanced Technology Education Center for Excellence, and the Manufacturing Education Resource Center. Field trips and laboratory exercises give students opportunities to carry out measurements and apply technological principles. Measurement results will be used in the paired algebra course and in class and homework exercises.
