Engineering Technologies

Engineering Technologies is a college-prep program for students interested in pursuing a career in one of many high paying engineering fields. With a grant of over $100,000 from the Vermont Dept. of Education, Engineering Technologies and BFA’s Design Technology programs have developed a series of Engineering Pathways to help students pursue careers in technology, engineering, computer hardware, software and networking, architecture, robotics or other STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) related fields.  Engineering Technologies students also have many other STEM related opportunities while enrolled including regional engineering competitions like Norwich’s Bridge Competition and State/National Competitions like SkillsUSA, where recent Engineering Technologies students have earned eleven first place State and several top ten National awards in Computer Maintenance and Mathematics.  Engineering careers are among the fastest growing and some of the highest paying careers in the job market today.
