Manufacturing/Engineering Technology and Graphics

  • Academy Coordinator: Darryl Thompson

    The Manufacturing/Engineering Technology & Graphics Academy is designed to serve those students interested in careers in Manufacturing, Engineering and Audio-Video Technologies.

    All students in Manufacturing and Engineering Technology take a series of classes in a special laboratory setting. Emphasis is placed on learning basic design skills, engineering principles, programming logic, and quality concepts through hands-on activities. Communication, teamwork and problem solving are reinforced throughout all areas in this program. Students also take a Drafting/CAD class to further develop technical skills.

    Graphics offers students an overview of graphic design. Emphasis is placed on digital file preparation, principles of design, web graphics, and video editing. Students use Adobe Creative Suites CC and Apple software in a Macintosh lab environment. During the senior year, students use video production equipment and software to produce twenty-first century video segments and live broadcasts to promote school activities.
