Yerba Buena Engineering program

Design, Build, Inspire.

The Yerba Buena Engineering Program provides a platform to introduce students to Engineering. Our course assumes no previous knowledge, but students should be concurrently enrolled in college preparatory mathematics and science. Students will employ engineering and scientific concepts in the solution of engineering design problems. In addition, students use a state of the 3D solid modeling design software package to help them design solutions to solve proposed problems. Students will develop problem-solving skills and apply their knowledge of research and design to create solutions to various challenges that increase in difficulty throughout the four year course load.  Students will also learn how to document their work, and communicate their solutions to their peers and members of the professional community.

The Yerba Buena Engineering has partnered along with Project Lead the Way (PLTW) to bring rigorous, relevant and reality based courses to all students. The course work at Yerba Buena Engineering meets the college A to G requirements.
