C Career & technical education programs for job training = Career & technical education programs for job training, guided by Advisory Committees
This program prepares students to work as technicians in the field of mechanical-electrical engineering. Graduates will be able to specify maintenance processes, solve problems in fabrication, design mechanical devices for manufacturing, and troubleshoot mechanical processes. Students find jobs as Engineering assistants, planners, designers, and CAD operators. This program is an excellent stepping stone to further personal development as a technologist and to gaining employment as an engineer.
