Career and technology education

CTE Logo

The mission of Technical Education is to ensure all students are technically literate. Technical literacy is the ability to use, manage, understand and assess technology.
Our Technical Education program includes the following instructional areas:  

  • Technical Education provides an opportunity for students to learn about the processes and knowledge that are needed to solve problems and extend human capabilities. Technical Education results in the application of mathematics and science concepts to technical systems in areas such as, but not limited to: construction, manufacturing, communications, transportation, biotechnology, and power and energy.  

  • Engineering is the application of science to the needs of humanity. This is accomplished through the application of knowledge, mathematics, and practical experience to the design of useful objects or processes.
