Honors Engineering Design and Development (EDD) is a fourth year elective course for students enrolled in the Cedar Creek Engineering or Environmental Science Magnet. In this capstone course, students work in teams to design and develop an original solution to a valid open-ended technical problem by applying the engineering design process. Students perform research to choose, validate, and justify a technical problem. After carefully defining the problem, teams design, build, and test their solutions while working closely with industry professionals who provide mentoring opportunities. Finally, student teams present and defend their original solution to an outside panel.
