    This program provides the college-bound student with pre-professional experiences in the field of engineering and related technologies.  Curriculum is enhanced through the use of state-of-the art technology and Amatrol Hands-On Learning Systems. The Engineering Related Technology program is a rigorous sequence of courses that allows students to develop skills in engineering and engineering technology. Exposure to principles of engineering and introduction to engineering design will help students prepare to enter a two or four-year college or technical school.  The Amatrol Systems help the student understand the practical side of engineering related technology by utilizing hands-on skills. This project-based curriculum challenges students to use mathematical, scientific, and technological principles to solve real world problems. The broader Engineering Related Technology program curriculum consists of a series of courses that expose students to the various disciplines of engineering including: civil engineering, electrical and electronic engineering, design engineering, industrial, manufacturing, and mechanical engineering, chemical engineering, aerospace engineering, and computer and network engineering.  Students will study electro-mechanical systems, robotics, electrical and electronic theory, thermal heat, and fluid and pneumatic power.  They will learn to use a variety of engineering tools including: software applications for design, statistical and data analysis, project management, presentation, and reporting. In addition, students will use laboratory equipment for testing and measurement.  Lastly, students will learn the problem-solving process, develop critical thinking skills, and work in teams.
