February is CTE month and we are excited to highlight the broad spectrum of fields that CTE offers our students. The sixth of the thirteen clusters we are highlighting is the Engineering and Technology Cluster. Within this career cluster, these are the pathways within our district that our students can take:

Pathway: Engineering

Workforce trends:

Employment of engineers will be limited by computer-aided design and other technologies that increase productivity. Job opportunities will be best for those individuals who have an associate degree or extensive job training.

Courses Offered:

Electronics 1 and 2 Robotics 1 and 2 CAD Architectural Design 1 CAD Mechanical Design 1 Welding Tech Entry Level Woods 1 Engineering Principles 1 and 2 Engineering Capstone Internship

Possible Occupations:

Machine Operator Production Technician Electrical Engineer Engineer Robotics Engineer

Collegiate Programs:

Brigham Young University University of Utah Utah State University Weber State University Utah Valley University

TSA – Student Organization:

TSA is the CTSO for students in the Engineering Career Pathway. TSA fosters personal growth, leadership, and opportunities in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). Provo High School and Timpview High School, both have chapters of TSA.

Pathway: Mechanical Design (CAD)

Industrial growth and increasingly complex designs will spur growth in drafting services. As technology advances, opportunities will be best for drafters with at least two years of postsecondary training, and computer-aided design systems experience.

According to the Utah Department of Workforce Services, 620 mechanical drafters are employed by more than 3,000 businesses throughout the state. The annual median salary for an experienced mechanical drafter is $51,690.

Courses Offered:

CAD Mechanical Design 1, 2 and 3 Welding Technician Entry Level Woods 1 CAPS Internship

Possible Occupations:

Engineering Technician Mechanical Drafter Aerospace Engineer Civil Engineer Mechanical Engineer Industrial Designer

Collegiate Programs:

Brigham Young University University of Utah Utah State University Weber State University Utah Valley University

TSA – Student Organization:

TSA is the CTSO for students in the Mechanical Design (CAD) Career Pathway. TSA fosters personal growth, leadership, and opportunities in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). Provo High School and Timpview High School, both have chapters of TSA.
