Kick-start your future today.

 
Engineering Technology is structured to provide insight and exposure to the basics of each major technology discipline and the processes of research and development. Each student will: program, make three-dimensional models, explore computer numerical controls, learn kinematics, design robots, and breakdown the division of labor that encompasses an operational STEM team. Students are given projects to construct, and will master the process of taking an idea and making it a tangible object. Engineering Technology is in accordance with the curriculum of Illinois State University, and based on the combined efforts of the National Science Foundation and NASA. This course provides students the experience and foresight to generate knowledge for their future careers in the STEM fields.

ENGINEERING TECHNOLOGY II GRADES: 12
1 YEAR
Prerequisite: Engineering Technology I
The second year of this STEM class will foster student's abilities to dive deep into the discipline they chose to pursue. We creating real world projects based around their area of study to prepare for college/ entering right into the workforce after graduation. Having an understanding of what employers are looking for, and advancing student's experiences, provides students to have a step up on the competition. Putting students in leadership opportunities to oversee projects to gain the knowledge it takes to get a jump start on their career, allows them to see what a day in the life of a professional looks like. Engineering Technology 1 has made students well rounded in all areas of STEM, and guided students to research their options and find what their perfect fit is. Now, in their second year, they will hyper-focus on the decision they have made, and specialize in their area of study. Employers and colleges are looking for students making the most of what they have, as well as experience and leadership. We gear ourselves to operate accordingly with those guidelines. We dedicate time towards college admission/ career application processes, so students will know what their next steps will be prior to graduating. Everyday students will be doing college level work, as well as taking on tasks and projects as though they are showing up to work. Preparation for a career out of high school is our goal, so we strive to arm our students will all the experience and knowledge they need to be successful.
