  • Applying the engineering design process
  • Applying science and math in engineering
  • Employing creativity and careful thinking to solve problems
  • Envisioning one's own abilities as an engineer
  • Troubleshooting and learning from failure
  • Understanding the central role of the variety of materials and their properties in engineering solutions
