MACHINE TOOL TECHNOLOGY

Almost everything we touch in our daily lives, from automobiles to blenders, contains parts crafted by a machinist. A machinist is the key person in producing the needed equipment and utensils that result in the products we enjoy every day. In this pathway, students learn specialized skills such as metallurgy, blueprint reading, fabrication of metal, sanding and grinding, oxy/fuel cutting, hand-held plasma cutting and CNC plasma cutting. 

BUILDING CONSTRUCTION

Construction is an ever-changing career field and the use of personal creativity and attention to detail makes this pathway challenging, yet extremely significant. All stages of rough and finished carpentry, estimating jobs, reading blueprints, framing, safety and more are covered in this pathway. Future careers include remodeling, estimating, interior design, carpentry and project management.

ENVIRONMENTAL ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN

The Environmental Architectural Design Pathway integrates skills in visual arts, science and engineering design to immerse students in the practices, processes and materials of the expanding field of sustainably-built environments.  Skills acquired through the study of green building can be applied to many different fields where collaboration, problem-solving, systems thinking and the ethics of sustainability are valued.

AUTOMATION & ROBOTICS ENGINEERING

Robotics is a field of engineering that deals with the design and application of robots and the use of computers for their manipulation and processing. Robots are used in industries for speeding up the manufacturing process as well as in the field of nuclear science, sea-exploration, servicing of transmission electric signals, designing of bio-medical equipment and more. Students will study the application of computer integrated manufacturing, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, biological mechanics and software engineering in this pathway.

PROGRAMMING & WEB DEVELOPMENT

Software developers are the creative minds behind computer programs. Some develop the applications that allow people to do specific tasks on a computer or another device; others develop the underlying systems that run the devices or control networks. Programming and web development will prepare you for careers using technical and academic skills to design, develop, test, implement and maintain computer software. Future careers include web design, graphic design, advertising sales, and computer programmer.
