  • Academy Coordinator: Darryl Thompson

    The Manufacturing/Engineering Technology & Graphics Academy is designed to serve those students interested in careers in various manufacturing, engineering, graphic design and audio/video careers. It consists of two pathways: Manufacturing/Engineering and Graphic Design.

    The Manufacturing/Engineering pathway offers a series of classes in a special laboratory setting. Students can expect to learn basic design skills, engineering principles, programming logic, manufacturing processes and quality-control concepts through hands-on activities. Communication, teamwork and problem-solving are reinforced throughout all the classes. Students also take a Drafting/CAD class to further develop technical skills. Apprenticeship opportunities are available for those qualifying students during their senior year through the industry-sponsored Apprenticeship 2000 program. 

    The Graphic Design pathway offers students an overview of Graphic Design and Digital Media. Emphasis is placed on principles of design, web communication, video editing, basic animation techniques and game art & design. Students have an opportunity to earn an industry standard credential in the following: Adobe InDesign, Dreamweaver, and Premiere Pro.
