Academy of Engineering and Environmental Sciences

Students participate in a program that focuses on two strands: Engineering and Environmental Sciences.

The purpose of the Engineering program is to provide students with a foundation of knowledge and technically oriented experiences in the study of applied engineering and its effect upon our lives and the choosing of an occupation. The content and activities will also include the study of entrepreneurship, safety, and leadership skills. This program focuses on transferable skills and stresses understanding and demonstration of the technological tools, machines, instruments, materials, processes and systems in business and industry.

Students have the opportunity to earn Industry Certifications in computer aided design programs programs like AutoCAD User, Inventor, Revit, and Solidworks, as well as safety certifications like Manufacturing Skill Standards Council (MSSC) and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).

The Environmental program focuses on the knowledge of federal, state, and local environmental regulations; ecosystem awareness; water and air quality issues; managing hazardous materials; managing forests, wetlands, fisheries, and wildlife; planning and administering land use; protecting resources; conducting site assessments; sampling procedures; safety procedures; compliance monitoring and quality assurance procedures; and instruction in GIS/GPS technology.

Students have the opportunity to earn Industry Certifications through AEST, which is the Natural Resource Specialist Certification, Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Associate, and also Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
