modeled after cutting-edge engineering schools, inspired by Project Lead the Way and endorsed by business partners and post-secondary institutions.

The CAPS Engineering course is for students who are interested in a combination of rigorous science and engineering fundamentals, entrepreneurship, and innovation. Students use technical knowledge to create solutions to world problems. The class begins with a broad introduction to industry-based engineering. Students will learn the essential components of Engineering including the Design Process. The remainder of the student’s experience is individually tailored to the student’s engineering interest, e.g. chemical, electrical, mechanical, aeronautics & astronautics, nuclear, civil & environmental, software/computer, architectural, advanced manufacturing and robotics. All students will have hands-on, active learning opportunities with a full immersion in real-world projects sponsored by business partners.The students do work for local, national and international organizations in the for profit and not-for-profit sectors.
