Today’s economy demands a better educated workforce that ever before, and jobs in this new economy require more complex knowledge and skills than the jobs of the past. Career and technical education (CTE) is an educational strategy for providing young people with the academic, technical, and employable skills and knowledge to pursue postsecondary training or higher education and enter a career field prepared for ongoing learning. This course will provide an additional career based pathway for students that are not on the four year engineering course sequence track and expose them to career and workforce readiness based skills.
