INDUSTRIAL TECHNOLOGY

Philosophy Of The Department

All students, regardless of gender, can benefit from experiences in industrial technology. Students may enroll in one semester exploratory courses without making long-range commitments. Traditional and modern technology courses are available for career and vocational goals. Exploratory and sequential programs are aligned with career pathways in automotive technology, construction technology, architectural, and engineering. Successful completion of any sequential program should provide the student with sufficient knowledge and skill to qualify for entry level employment, vocational courses at the Career Technical Center, or educational/technical training programs after high school.
