Career and Technical Education (CTE)

ENGINEERING AND METAL FABRICATION ACADEMY


Students are exposed to Advanced Manufacturing (Precision Machining) and Welding Technologies through 10-week rotations during the first year. Second year students begin the year with the rotation process, and then select an area of concentration in either Advanced Manufacturing or Welding Technologies. Each concentration has a certified teacher in their respective technologies.

Students will learn to fabricate industry-specific metal products. The process includes elements of design, machining and welding processes. Students will acquire basic tooling and machining skills utilizing computer-driven (CNC) layout techniques and manual techniques. Students gain knowledge and skills in a variety of metal joining and cutting processes.
