Interdisciplinary Academic Pathways
Chemistry can be used more in the engine and transmission are in automotive engineering.
Chemistrywill be used in making sure the engine received the proper amount of fuel and air. Also the type of fuel and oil used is very important.
Physics will be helpful when, in designing the car, determining how much displacement is need, offsets, counterweights, etc. Also it can be used in airbags fro measuring how much pressure is need to delploy the airbags safely.
FDU Moral and ethics
Broadcasting / Film
taught us how to properly document different activities/events and putting those clips together to make it a useful or informational video
Broadcasting/Film is useful in the automotive industry as it can be implemented in making videos for a new car launch/reveal or for documenting things that will be needed throughout the project or even a company documentary it can be used for several things that not everyone realizes film can be used in every aspect of the automotive industry
we learned about social and political conflict in the middle east and we also learned about the economy in the middle east with all the oil they handle and sell with all the things they import and how it is affecting their countries
this will be useful in the automotive industry as almost all of the car companies sell their cars world wide which would help on pricing the cars and it also gives an incite on how most vehicles should be designed based on the life in those countries
English is used in everyday life. In the Automotive industry, English can be used to make deals, explains sketches/prototypes, etc. And it is also our ways of communication with each other we need to have proper grammar too for when making important emails or documents for a company
Learning shapes and distances that will help with design in the future
Learning about shapes and being able to determine distance can be used to design an automobile with full detail and dimensions while it being safe to drive if made.
Learning about angles and slowly going into trigonometry which is needed in Automotive Design and Engineering
I can use trigonometry to determine the correct angle for a tire or the dimension for an airbag that will deploy and and save your life.

Becoming CPR certified
being CPR certified is crucial in any job as you never know what is to happen someone can get hurt and being CPR/first aid certified can possibly save someone's life if they have any injury while being on the job
Engineering & Technology
mecatronics goes in hand with the electronics lab as it teaches and shows us how the programming behind everything is done while also teaching us how to program other things
this is one of the best classes for people interested in the engineering field as it provides us with a valuable hands on experience which gives us a better understanding of the career
this is a crucial class in the engineering field as this is a huge part in making these everyday things we use work and it is also safety as anything that has to do with electricity can catch on fire if not done correctly which can seriously hurt someone or put their lives at risk.
this calls is great as it helps us engineers better understand the design process that goes into everything and it gives us a better understanding into seeing how they function
