Engineering Courses

Technical education (TE) can benefit students directly by providing earning advantages before and after graduation. It can benefit them indirectly by increasing engagement, retention, and persistence and by directing them to postsecondary education and pursuit of lifelong learning. TE programs motivate students to get involved in their learning by engaging them in problem-solving activities that construct knowledge and by providing hands-on activities that enable them to apply knowledge; bring students and adults together in a setting of collaborative learning. Research shows students considered "at risk" or "disadvantaged" and students with disabilities have greater success when they are enrolled in technology education, tech prep, school-to-career, and other TE programs.
