As a student in engineering sciences, you'll have the opportunity to learn about the engineering design process and then apply it to solve problems in the world around you - locally and at the state and national levels. The curriculum explores aspects of mechanical, electrical, computer, robotic, and civil engineering throughout the 3-year sequence. VEX and FIRST Robotics will be included in the course, as well as Arduino and essential skills like wood- and metal-working and soldering.
Not sure engineering is for you? You will have the option to attain 1 of 3 industry-recognized certifications: Certified Solidworks Associate (CSWA), Certified Solidworks Professional (CSWP), or REC foundation Pre-Engineering Certification and the opportunity to participate in the Engineering Career and Technical Student Organization, SkillsUSA. These opportunities will prepare you to join the workforce as a skilled employee when you complete the program or boost your college applications to the top of the pile.
Engineering is prestigious and in such high demand throughout the nation that, should you choose to study engineering, the chances of getting a full-ride scholarship are excellent. Most employers offer some reimbursement or subsidy for advanced degrees as well. The average starting salary for an engineer is over $50,000. Median wages in 2018 were $87,370 annually.
Are you analytical, detail-oriented, creative, dependable, and a team-player? If you enjoy solving puzzles, helping people, and creating a better world, engineering is for you!
About the teacher:
I work hard to make sure that my students are engaged in genuinely interesting work that addresses the standards.
I've completed four research projects at national laboratories: one in 2012 at the National Optical Astronomy Observatory studying light pollution and another in 2014 at SLAC National Accelerator Center studying the polarization of the synchrotron beam. The final two were in 2018 & 2019 at Fermilab National Laboratory working on the CMS HGCal Upgrades & the ICARUS neutrino experiment.
I taught IB Physics for four years at Betty Fairfax and three years at North High School. 2019 is my first year teaching engineering as a Bobcat. I'm excited to be here!
I believe in a growth mindset. No one starts as an expert in anything. We all need to be willing to learn and improve. If at first, you don't succeed, learn from failure, and try again. Failure is celebrated as a learning opportunity.
