See the Pre-Engineering program in action, as seen on Global Television.

Pre-engineering is a dynamic, state-of-the-art program that provides students with a practical hands-on experience in an interactive technical lab environment complimented with virtual, online simulations. Last semester, pre-engineering students designed, constructed and tested a hovercraft. Students work with robotic, pneumatic, electrical, wind, solar, autmated and other technologies to apply their knowledge and skills to solve authentic engineering problems in many field sof engineering, such as electrical, mechanical, structural, computer, and environmental. The pre-engineering lab has a full complement of amatrol and Festo equipment.

Students also have access to VEX Robotoic equipment, 3-dimensional printing/milling and electrolab hardware/software applications.
