Engineering Design & Machine Technologies offers students the opportunity to work on conventional tool room (mills, lathes, surface grinders) equipment as well as the use of hand tools, precision measurement instruments (micrometers, indicators), and Computerized Machines (CNC). Blueprint reading, technical math and problem solving skills are emphasized throughout the program. Many entry level jobs are available through the engineering design & machine technologies class along with supervised work experiences.
Early College - The Engineering Design & Machine Technologies program offers students the unique opportunity to enroll in our Early College program. The program was developed in partnership with Grand Rapids Community College and Herman Miller. In addition to internship and certification opportunities, 11th graders who are enrolled in one of three Careerline Tech Center (CTC) classes may earn up to 30 free transferable college credits through GRCC while they earn a high school diploma. Students remain in the program for a 13th year to graduate.
