Engineering & Robotics

Lab Tour and Program Overview
CAD Engineering 1

Course Number: 80331

In CAD Engineering I, students study the process of converting ideas and designs into technical drawings and communicates these ideas through drafting techniques. Students utilize AutoCAD, 3D printers,  CNC machines, and hand tools to produce prototypes of their designs.

CAD Engineering 2

Course Number: 80332

In CAD Engineering II, students utilize computers to learn advanced drafting techniques while applying drafting theories and standards to solve design problems. Students focus on the use of Creo Parametric, industrial grade 3D printers and a CNC machine to develop working prototypes.

CAD Engineering 3

Course Number: 80346

Designed as a capstone course. Students pursue an advanced directed study in an area of Engineering. Students work in groups to create semester long design proposals to develop working products.

CAD Engineering 4

Course Number: 80348

Designed as a capstone course. Students pursue an advanced directed study in an area of Engineering. Students work in groups to create semester long design proposals to develop working products.

Intro to Robotics 1

Course Number: 696131

An Engineering laboratory course designed to teach the student programming, functions of electronic devices, and robotic and material fabrication methods. Students design and build automated systems, and gain an enriched understanding of the contemporary mechanical world.

Robotics Competition Team

VEX Robotics is a world-wide organization that offers students a platform for learning and understanding science, technology, engineering, and math.

Our teams compete year-round at local events with the season culminating in February at the VEX Robotics State Championship, located at New Mexico State University. If our team were to win at State, we would be eligible for the VEX World Championship.

This tournament brings the best teams from all over the world together and allows them to compete for scholarship opportunities and gain engineering knowledge.
