Engineering & Technology


Engineering and Technology Education is a program of classroom and laboratory experiences that prepare students to be technologically literate. Engineering and Technology Education classes allow students to experiment, design, construct and evaluate. Students use tools, machines, materials and processes, which, in addition to developing an understanding of technology, assist students in making informed and meaningful career choices. Students can also prepare for entry into associate degree and baccalaureate programs in technology. Engineering and Technology Education courses are available to any interested student regardless of curriculum path.

Engineering & Technology Courses


The Engineering and Technology Department offers courses in the areas of Information and Communications, Construction, Energy, Power and Transportation, and Design and Engineering. State-mandated graduation requirements necessitate that students take at least one credit in the arts or career/technical education in order to graduate. The Engineering and Technology Education Department offers courses in any of the areas mentioned above as a way to fulfill that requirement.

DESIGN & ENGINEERING: Project Lead the Way

The Engineering and Technology Department is working with University of New Haven to implement a pre-engineering program that prepares students for a rigorous college curriculum in Engineering and Engineering Technology. Project Lead the Way seeks to connect high school math instruction with preliminary experiences in engineering design, electronic circuit logic, engineering principles, and modern manufacturing methods. Students who successfully complete this program and an additional examination are eligible to receive college credit from partner colleges including University of New Haven and Rochester Institute of Technology. Additional information about this program can be obtained at


Students have the opportunity to earn college credit toward an A.S. degree in Technology Studies at Tunxis Community College and the Connecticut College of Technology - Please see your technology teacher or guidance counselor for more information.
