In the Engineering and Technology pathway, students study and apply principles of science and math to solve problems in engineering projects involving design, development or production in various technologies. YA students acquire basic skills pertinent to understanding and working with drafting and engineering technical documents in the first year along with the core employability and safety skills.

Students will acquire basic concepts needed to read, edit, and create basic engineering technical drawings.

The second year allows these students to develop further skills in a specific specialization depending on their worksite placement or area of interest.  Choices of specialization include Mechanical or Electrical Engineering or Civil Engineering.

  • Entering junior or senior status
  • Display a genuine interest in the Engineering and Technology Pathway
  • Submit a completed application along with references
  • Interview effectively and get hired
  • Maintain a high level of attendance
  • Secure transportation to the job
  • On track for high school graduation

Students participating in the Engineering Youth Apprenticeship program will take courses offered through their home high school.  These could include Project Lead the Way or STEM Academy courses.
