Engineering Academy

 
The Engineering Academy is designed for any student with an interest in engineering, architecture, or a technology based career. The Engineering Academy introduces students to the engineering design process and field of engineering through projects that utilize the latest computer technology. Students will take an engineering course each year that will provide project based hands-on activities that are relevant to today's advancements in technology.
 
Students in the academy will acquire problem solving and teamwork skills necessary to succeed in higher education and/or technology based careers. Students will also take core classes in English, math, science, and social science that have themes centered on their engineering courses. In addition, students will have the opportunity to visit local companies with an emphasis on technology and engineering, meet with people currently employed in fields involving new and innovative technology, participate in job shadows, attend career and college fairs, and compete with other schools in engineering competitions.

All engineering academy students will also have the opportunity to participate in summer internships between their junior and senior year. The Capstone Course for the Academy, Engineering Design and Development, allows students to design and create a solution to an open-ended engineering problem of their choice, and to present their findings to a panel of local community leaders.
