ENGINEERING

 

 APPLIED ENGINEERING TECHNOLOGY I  

This course helps students understand the field of engineering/engineering technology and prepares them for postsecondary engineering programs by developing a more in-depth mastery of the associated mathematics, science, and technology knowledge and skills. The course also includes essential concepts of technology and design, as well as concerns about the social and political implications of technological change.

 APPLIED ENGINEERING TECHNOLOGY II  

This course provides students with opportunities to further their mastery of engineering-related math and science principles to design solutions to real world problems. The course also includes a more in-depth look into the relationship between technology and design.

 APPLIED ENGINEERING TECHNOLOGY III  

This course provides opportunities for students to apply their acquired knowledge and skills in engineering scenarios. The course features multiple options for providing context-based projects oriented to specific fields of engineering. This feature enables instruction in complex projects involving multi-faceted project teams by providing instruction oriented to four key engineering disciplines: mechanical, electrical, civil, and environmental

DIGITAL MEDIA TECHNOLOGY

 

This course will introduce students to the technical and creative demands of video editing. Students will learn basic camera operation and filming techniques to capture video and use Adobe Premiere Pro to edit video; learning pre-production, production and post-production. Using professional edit samples from film and television as study pieces, students will be able to identify and analyze pace, mood, style and effect. Students will demonstrate acquired knowledge and skill to create a series of productions. These productions/projects will include (but not limited to) movie trailers, PSAs, commercials/ads, tutorials and think pieces. Using a hands-on approach to learning, students will be prepared to earn Industry Certification(s).
