In a word, engineering is about design! Students will learn about how to turn an idea into an actual product using the engineering design process. Along the way, they must learn to use tools and technology to ensure the product solves their problem effectively. Students will learn key concepts on several topics including structural design, catapults, electronics, and many more.
Engineering is an exciting career choice because there are many specializations to choose from. The starting salaries are also very high as is the demand, which provides great job security.

The Technology Student Association (TSA) is the only student organization devoted exclusively to the needs of students interested in technology. Members learn through exciting competitive events, leadership opportunities and much more. TSA chapters take the study of STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) beyond the classroom and give students the chance to pursue academic challenges among friends with similar goals and interests.
