Welcome to Architectural and Engineering Design!
The Engineering Technology Department is dedicated to provide students with a genuine hands-on curriculum that reflects STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) education as it pertains to the fast paced technological advances in our society. These courses are designed for independent and group work opportunities that encourage critical problem solving skills, leadership, and design. An emphasis will be placed on reflections, exploration, demonstration, and evaluation as they progress through the Engineering Technology courses. Students enrolled in these courses will be given opportunities such as, but not limited to: competition involvements, scholarships, portfolios, work-based learning, and field trips.
In additon to our Engineering courses, we offer a full year of competitive robotics, as we compete in the OCCRA
competitions and FIRST
. Together with our growing team, dedicated staff, and amazing engineering mentors, students design, build, and execute a fully functional 120lb robot 2 times a year!
The OCCRA competition kicks off in the fall, wheras FIRST begins in January. This team has allowed for students to compete on the international level, as well as given students opportunites for full ride scholarships to univeristites such as University of Michigan and Kettering Univeristy. (please note, that not all students will receive a full ride to the above colleges).
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Rosa Everitt or Bernie Simms for more information about the Engineering Courses or the Robotics Team.
