4 How do you know if you want a career in & Technology? What are Engineers? Engineers are people who make things work, the work and ideas of engineers make achievements possible. They put power and materials to work. Engineers have moved America into skyscrapers, high speed cars, jets and space vehicles. They make life interesting, comfortable, and fun. Computers, television, and satellites-products of the communication industry depend on engineers. Engineers will design safe and comfortable space stations for the 21st century. Math and Science are the basis for an engineering and technology career. Decisions you make in school can affect your career possibilities. Some of the recommended high school courses are: Algebra Biology Calculus Chemistry Computer Mathematics Geometry Math Analysis Physics Trigonometry If you think you would be interested in a career in engineering and technology, check your potential for success by answering these questions: Do you enjoy math and science? Do you have an inquisitive and searching mind? Are you interested in knowing what makes things work? Do you enjoy taking things apart and putting them back together? Do you like to solve problems and puzzles? Do you like to create things? Do you enjoy sewing or putting things together? Do you enjoy learning? Do you enjoy working with computers? Do you enjoy playing video games and would like to make your own? Do you achieve good grades? If you answered yes to most of the questions, you may want to consider a career in engineering and technology. BENEFITS OF engineering & technology MAGNET PROGRAM!

8 Course Descriptions Advanced The applications and design process of engineering. Students form engineering teams and select a group design problem. Projects may be models, systems, or products that creatively solve an engineering problem. Architectural Drawing Students will learn the principles of architecture and increase understanding of working drawing and construction techniques learned in the prerequisite course. Students use computer-aided drawing and design (CAD) equipment and established standards or codes to prepare models for presentation. Basic Technical Drawing In this foundation course students learn the basic language of technical design, design sketch, and make technical drawings, models, or prototypes of real design problems. Computer Systems Technology I Students learn to construct, troubleshoot, service, and repair computer systems, related components, software, and install and maintain local area networks. Computer Systems Technology II Students learn to diagnose and demonstrate networking concepts; demonstrate steps to correct problems identified. Computer Systems Technology III-Students obtain a strong understanding in troubleshooting procedures, a practical knowledge in implementing various advanced networking technology solutions, and the ability to implement and manage network security measures. Electronics I This course engages students in electricity and electronic experiments that focus on the application of scientific theories and mathematics principles. Students solve problems using simple electrical devices and circuits and build electric projects using dc and ac devices and circuits. Electronics II Students work electronic devices, instruments, and circuits, building projects to apply theories and laws with electronic components such as resistors, capacitors, and transistors. They also study integrated circuits used in computers, amplifiers, computer systems trouble shooting and repair. Drawing Students use a graphic language for product design, technical illustration, assembly, patent, and aeronautical drawings. Students use computers, calculators, and descriptive geometry and adhere to established standards to solve design problems. Completion of this course may contribute to a student s preparation for the AutoCAD 2000 certification. 8

9 Course Descriptions Explorations-This course is an introduction to the fundamentals of technology and engineering.
