The Technology & Engineering Education Department believes that education is a process of life-long learning for all students. Technology Education works best when the school community shares in the responsibility and participates in the Technology Education program. Technology Education is a rapidly changing school curriculum of hands-on learning activities. The Technology & Engineering Education Department’s courses and curriculum provide students with learning and activities focused on the five areas of technology: manufacturing, communication, transportation, energy and power, and construction.

All TEE courses require a material and/or workbook fee.
