IMAGINE BEING AT THE CENTER OF INNOVATION, MAKING THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE.
Engineers provide solutions to problems and devise ideas for innovations touching almost every aspect of life. You may want to design computer chips, create software programs or improve communications systems. Or maybe you see yourself in the field of robotics. These opportunities await you through the world of engineering.
The Engineering Career Institute at Highlands High School offers an advanced and rigorous curriculum in all core subjects with a focus on career opportunities in one of three different strands or “majors” to choose from: Engineering, Networking and Computer Science (Project Lead the Way), all under the STEM endorsement. An endorsement is a targeted area of interest, and there are five different areas set by the state.
All majors offer students a number of Advanced Placement and dual-credit courses. Career courses closely align to the related programs at St. Philip’s College. Advanced Placement courses are available to prepare students for rigorous college coursework offered through the dual-credit courses.
All Institute students are required to participate in UIL, student leadership and service projects while in high school.
*College credits include both dual credit and AP credit-by-exam
