Description:

Engineering & Technology combines hands-on projects with a rigorous curriculum to prepare students for the most challenging postsecondary engineering and technology programs. You will build solid writing, comprehension, calculation, problem-solving, and technical skills. You will be encouraged to take relevant math and science courses, such as advanced algebra, chemistry, calculus, geometry, trigonometry, physics, design, and engineering concepts. In addition to classroom and laboratory experiences, Engineering & Technology students participate in the Technology Student Association (TSA). Activities in Technology Student Association promote leadership skills, high standards of craft quality, scholarship, and safety. Through Technology Student Association, you’ll have the opportunity to explore your community’s industrial and technological resources, practice parliamentary procedures and democratic decision-making, and earn recognition for exemplary performance.

Engineering & Technology graduates typically pursue postsecondary education at two-year or four-year colleges to prepare for engineering, engineering technology, and engineering technician-oriented positions. Possible college majors include architectural, biomedical, chemical, civil, computer, computer science, electrical, environmental, industrial, manufacturing, materials, mechanical, and nuclear engineering and engineering technology. Career opportunities in these fields generally involve planning, managing, and providing scientific research and professional and technical services. The demand for skilled engineers in the United States far outpaces the current supply, so the future looks bright for students who want to follow an engineering-related career.

Courses Offered:

  • Technology I
  • Technology II
  • Technology III
  • Technology IV

Technology Student Association (TSA):
