The purpose of Technology Education is to develop technological literacy as part of all students' fundamental education through an activity-based study of past, present, and future technological systems and their resources, processes, and impact on society. Technology Education utilizes computer and educational technology in the delivery of content related to systems of communication, energy/power-transportation, production, and bio-related technologies.
In addition to classroom/ laboratory experiences, students participate in the Technology Student Association (TSA). Activities of the TSA are an integral part of the instructional program because they promote leadership skills, high standards of craft quality, scholarship, and safety. Opportunities are provided for involvement with the community's industrial and technological resources, in parliamentary procedures and democratic decision making, and for recognition for exemplary performance.
First year: Foundations of Engineering and Technology Second year: Engineering Concepts Third year: Engineering Applications
Engineering and technology students will combine hands-on projects and rigorous curriculum to be prepared for challenging post secondary engineering and technology problems: and builds solid technical writing, comprehension, calculation, problem-solving, and technical skills. Students are encouraged to take relevant math and science course, such as advanced algebra, chemistry, calculus, geometry, trigonometry, physics, design, and engineering concepts.
Students are also eligible to apply for the National Technical Honor Society (NTHS). NTHS is the premier honor society for Career and Technical Education students, drawing on their experiences in the CTAE classroom.
