The Pre-Engineering program offers students the option of taking either the Electrical or Mechanical class. They are independent one-year three-credit classes designed for students interested in pursuing a career in engineering or related technical fields. Career exploration assists students in developing individual career paths and exploring related educational opportunities.
Students receive instruction in Electrical and Electronics theory with associated laboratory experiments and develop electrical schematics using computer software applications. These skills are then applied to the study of Robotics, Sensor Technology, Electro-Pneumatics, and programmable logic control systems (PLC's).
Students use industry standard hardware, interactive software and computer simulation offering a variety of hands-on learning experiences. Discover how these skills are combined to form the foundation for many automated systems. Career exploration assists students in developing individual education and career paths.
This class offers instruction in metal working and machining, power transmission systems, fluid power systems, industrial materials, basic machines and mechanics, and blueprint/schematic reading and applications. Traditional text/workbook study is combined with hands-on laboratory activities. Students use industry standard equipment and are introduced to computer numerical control systems for machining (CNC) and computer aided manufacturing (CAM). Career exploration assists students in developing individual education and career paths.
