Upcoming Events

Summer Camps

This hands-on 2-day workshop for women 15 years of age and up, is designed for students interested in exploring careers in technology, including Electrical Engineering Technology and Engineering Design and Drafting Technology. Electrical engineering technologists are specialists in the generation, transmission, distribution and utilization of energy. They study topics including basic electricity, industrial control systems, electrical power generation, electrical machines, industrial electronics, and electrical system design. Engineering Design and Drafting Technologists participate in multi-discipline engineering projects. As technologists in this dynamic role, they use industry-standard software to collaborate, design, model, draft, coordinate and document projects in many disciplines, such as construction, mining and manufacturing. No personal protective equipment is required for this course. Safety eye glasses will be provided. However, persons with prescription glasses are encouraged to bring their own safety glasses to fit around prescription eye glasses.
