Program Introduction

    Engineering Technology allows for skill development and career exploration in engineering-related technical fields. Some students will later pursue four-year college degrees, while others will pursue two-year or technical school degrees. Engineering principles taught hold value to both groups. The instructional program includes: OSHA safety, CAD, electricity, electronics, mechanics, microcontrollers and robotics. Course work also emphasizes the development of communication skills, neatness, collaboration, and attention to detail. Students will acquire academic and technical skills necessary to lead and work effectively with others, and enter the workforce, technical school, or college. Finally,supervised work experience provides an increase in on-the-job knowledge and abilities.
