The Utica Community Schools Center for Science and Industry provides a rigorous academic program for students pursuing a career in technology. Advanced technical training is offered in the areas of engineering technology, mechatronics, and multi-media. Students have access to work-based learning opportunities including job shadowing, mentoring, and internships. The Center For Science and Industry is one of Michigan’s first high schools offering Mechatronics (“Mechatronics merges the principles/processes of four engineering disiplines – electrical, mechanical, computer, and industrial – to produce complex “smart” devices. ”). Upon graduating high school, I will take a semester at Macomb Community College to acquire 12 college credits accredited to me for taking the mechatronics classes.
I am a senior preparing for college. I have been looking into several schools and I will be narrowing my choices down in the coming months. As you may have guessed I am very interested in engineering and plan to major as an electrical/electronic engineer. My school of choice at this time is Carnegie Melon with a host of other schools rounding out my top picks such as U of M, RIT – Rochester Institute of Technology, Lawrence Tech, Indiana State, and a few more I am still investigating.
I can’t wait to venture off into the exciting world! I have experience doing creative projects in CSI (Center for Science and Industry), in SolidWorks and other programs which I have posted under my Projects Page. This has helped with co-op internships and proof that I am a very dedicated student.
