    The purpose of this program is to provide students with a foundation of knowledge and technically oriented experiences in the study of the applications of engineering and its effect on our lives and the choosing of an occupation. The content and activities include the study of entrepreneurship, safety, and leadership skills. This program focuses on transferable skills and stresses understanding and demonstration of the technological tools, machines, instruments, materials, processes, and systems in business and industry.


    Clean Energy

    As the need for clean and sustainable energy systems increases, it is imperative that our nation’s secondary educational facilities prepare students to enter the emerging “Green Collar Economy.” This curriculum will guide students from understanding the energy challenges and trade-offs between energy, environment, society, to understanding electricity and magnetism. Students will develop an understanding of the differences between nonrenewable and renewable energy sources and how these energy sources affect their world. Alternative energy sources will be researched to include the regional implications and economic, environmental, and sustainability issues. Students will evaluate the positive and negative impacts of nuclear power and its relevancy to various situations in today’s society. Students will explore future trends of energy, power, and transportation. Students will develop, through research, an alternative energy system that will demonstrate their understanding of a unique, as well as appropriate, approach to energy generation


    Computer Science

    This program offers a sequence of courses that provides coherent and rigorous content aligned with challenging academic standards and relevant technical knowledge and skills needed to prepare for further education and careers such as computer programmers, programmer analysts, and information systems programmers in the Information Technology career cluster.


    Computer Game Design

    Students completing this pathway will gain an understanding of the fundamental principles used at every stage of the game creation process. First, game genres and modes of play are explored in terms of the psychology of incentives, motivation to play, and social networking. Next, virtual characters and non-player characters are reviewed from concept drawing to 2D and 3D art, rigging, and animation. Next, level design, storytelling, and animation are added to develop a virtual world around the characters. These same techniques are at work in training simulator systems, virtual shopping experiences, augmented reality, and a number of other important career options. Schools offering this program can provide a foundation of traditional drawing, illustration, and art courses to make way for the 2D and 3D animation, storytelling, character development, audio, and game technology.



    Cybersecurity is designed to provide students the advanced concepts and terminology of cybersecurity. The course explores the field of cybersecurity with updated content including new innovations in technology and methodologies. It builds on existing concepts introduced in Introduction to Cybersecurity and expands into malware threats, cryptography, organizational security, and wireless technologies.
