Engineering and Technology


The EMHS Engineering and Technology Department offers courses that appeal to a variety of interests.  We offer technology courses that sample topics such as digital music, the PC, and graphic communications.  We also offer courses specifically in construction, manufacturing, computer aided drafting (CAD), and computer programming.  Our Project Lead the Way courses are a four-year engineering track that culminates in a capstone project where students spend the year researching and designing a solution to an engineering problem they have identified.
