High School Engineering Design Pathway

This pathway is designed to provide a foundation in Engineering Design. The program offers classroom, laboratory, and hands-on learning. Students are engaged in an instructional program that integrates academic and technical preparation as well as career exploration that emphasizes real world, relevant experiences in engineering technology and design. Depending on school site; with emphasis in aeronautical engineering, computer integrated manufacturing, and computer engineering. Students will be prepared for continued training, advanced educational opportunities, and direct entry to a career.
