The Technology and Engineering curriculum provides a comprehensive study in technology, engineering and manufacturing with emphasis on skill development and career exploration. Students enter the program through Introduction to Engineering and Manufacturing, which is designed to introduce students to the fundamentals of both engineering and manufacturing. Arrowhead offers six courses in the nationally accredited Project Lead the Way Program (pltw.org). This is in addition to a variety of courses offered in Technology Education that give students the opportunity to receive college credits or industry certifications.
Arrowhead Technology and Engineering Department also provides the juniors and seniors a chance to become involved with two nationally accredited programs in the automotive area. Arrowhead has become an accredited school through the National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation (NATEF) as well as the Automotive Youth Education Systems (AYES). Both associations provide graduates job opportunities, scholarships, free tools, and advanced placement at WCTC and MATC. Along with these opportunities, students may also choose from technology enhanced traditional course work in woodworking, metalworking, manufacturing, power and transportation systems and computer-aided drafting and manufacturing. In addition, seniors will have the opportunity to participate in an industry internship or Youth Apprenticeship. This program is for those students serious about their future plans and willing to be released from school to gain work experience in a professional environment.
