Electronics and computers are a part of nearly everything that touches everyone’s life, from airplane control towers and medical imaging machines to the grocery store checkout, to cell phones and game consoles. There is a need for trained professionals to design, maintain and repair those computer systems and electronic devices. Students will enter a high-tech, hands-on world where they will learn about electronic components, circuits, computer-aided design, computer and network systems and robotics.

This is a two year, program for high school juniors and seniors. Students will have the opportunity to earn up to four credits per year in CTE or a combination of CTE and integrated academic credit for career and financial management, math and science.
