Technological Education

Our Technological Education programs are based on the premise that:

Students learn best by doing


These courses provide hands on, project based activities that allow students to acquire knowledge, develop technical skills and gain practical experience.


The following subjects are available through the Technological Education Department.



In construction technology courses, students will learn about designing, constructing, and maintaining a variety of buildings and structures, and will gain experience with the tools, equipment, and processes commonly used in the field. Students will also learn about health and safety standards in the construction industry, building codes and regulations, and employment opportunities and careers in the various sectors of the industry, including electricity, carpentry, masonry, heating and cooling, and plumbing.  The construction technology courses initially focus on residential and light construction systems related to residential buildings and structures, and progress to more advanced residential and light commercial construction. The woodworking courses allow students to concentrate on furniture building or cabinet making.


Hospitality and Tourism

Hospitality and tourism education provides both a hands-on and a theoretical approach to learning about the various sectors in the field. Students will have opportunities to develop essential food preparation and presentation skills. They will gain experience with equipment and procedures commonly used in their particular sectors of interest, and will comply with health and safety regulations and standards that govern the various sectors in the industry. They will acquire a foundation of skills and knowledge that will prepare them for both postsecondary education and careers in hospitality and tourism.


Technological Design

Technological design courses provide students with a variety of learning experiences that focus on the practical application of the principles of engineering, architecture, and design. These activity-based courses emphasize problem solving to meet design challenges in a wide range of areas, which may include apparel and textile design, architectural design, interior design, mechanical and industrial design. The technologies and processes used to create design solutions may include both traditional and computer-based drafting methods, scale models, working prototypes, animations and simulations, displays, portfolios, and presentations.



Transportation technology courses provide students with opportunities to understand transportation systems from the perspective of either the consumer or the service provider. The range of courses enables students to study both vehicle ownership and vehicle maintenance, and to develop skills and prepare for careers in the servicing and repair of vehicles, aircraft, and/or watercraft. In addition, students will develop the Essential Skills and work habits that are important for success in the transportation industry.
