Introduction to Engineering Methods and Computer Programming
Solution strategies will emphasize problem solving in technical fields as well as creativity and expression through programming. The course is all inclusive. Thus, technical fundamentals required for problem solving will be covered as part of the course. No prior programming experience is expected.
Students will need a home computer running Windows XP or higher
as well as a home Internet connection or another way to access internet based course content outside of the daily class time.
Additional requirement for dual enrollment option:
Students may be required to have a passing score on a portion of the Virginia Placement Test (VPT), OR
one SAT score of 500 or greater OR one ACT score of 21 or greater.
Semesters Offered & Schedule Format
Academic Year: Introduction to Engineering Methods and Computer Programming
Block Schedule: Introduction to Engineering Methods and Computer Programming
Please Note: In the Academic Year Class the dual enrollment college classes are not divided into semesters. Both dual enrollment college counterparts span the full academic year. Thus, dual enrollment credit for either college class cannot be obtained by only completing one semester of the Governor's School class. At the end of the academic year, six hours college credit will be issued for both VCCS courses. That is, a student completing only the fall semester is not eligible for any college (dual enrollment) credit.
