    Course Descriptions:

    Pre-Engineering: This course is designed to generate an interest in Engineering and related occupations as career goals and expose students to the associated technologies through hands-on instruction and problem-solving activities. Scientific principles, mathematical concepts, and communication skills are taught through an activity oriented approach. Robotics, electronics, manufacturing processes, pneumatics, mechanisms, and computer design technologies will be explored by students. Student teams will progress through an articulated modular instructional system.This course is UC “G” (college preparatory elective) approved. Credits: 10

     

    Drafting Technology (1/2):  This course is open to all students and is recommended for 9th and 10th graders. This program prepares individuals to plan, prepare, and interpret engineering and architectural drawings. Drafting prepares a student for occupations such as construction trades, architectural careers, engineer, interior design, and other technology based opportunities. Students will be given the opportunity to create engineering or architectural models through hands on activities. Articulated with Hartnell College CMA 81 course. This course is UC “G” (college preparatory elective) approved.   Coursework is foundational for programs at Hartnell Community College and may lead to completion of the following: Associate of Science Degree in Construction Management and Architecture, or a Certificate of Achievement in Construction Management and Architecture. Articulated with Hartnell College CMA 74 course. (Prerequisite: Pre-Engineering) Credits: 10
