The goal of the Academy of Engineering (AOE) is to prepare students for college and careers, while letting students explore their career interests. There is a vital need for future engineers and computer scientists and the Academy of Engineering creates a pathway to promote this STEM field.
The Academy of Engineering staff has created opportunities for students to explore various Engineering disciplines through academy curriculum, projects, work site tours, guest speakers, job shadow opportunities, opportunities with our business partners, and internships. These work-based learning events on campus help students gain critical career knowledge. Students can explore the following engineering careers: mechanical, chemical, electrical, computer scientist, or computer programming. Students have the ability to design projects according to their career interests.
In addition to the student’s high school course work, students take engineering electives and complete work-based learning events. Students must complete course work and work-based learning events to complete the Academy of Engineering Graduation Requirements.
