Engineering & Technology

Do you love figuring out how things work or designing them to be better?

What is Engineering & Technology?

Classes in engineering and technology focus on architecture, engineering, and information technology.

  • Architecture: designing and planning the built environment.
  • Engineering: planning, managing and providing professional and technical services including laboratory and testing services, and research and development services.
  • Information Technology: related to the design, development, support and management of hardware, software, multimedia and systems integration services.
  • Digital Media Technology & Communication: Designing, producing, exhibiting, performing, writing, and publishing multimedia content including visual and performing arts and design, journalism, and entertainment services.

Careers in Engineering & Technology:

The career possibilities are truly endless. If these careers inspire you please talk with your guidance counselor about CTE, or contact the technical college nearest you!
