MIJTED Students learning engineering, one of MIJTED's many cte education programs.

Engineering is about solutions

Do you enjoy taking things apart and figuring out how they work? Does the idea of creating new ways of doing things intrigue you? Engineering may be your field. This CTE education program trains and certifies students in Computer Numerical Controls (CNC) and robotic programming and repair. Students operate CNC six-axis lathes and program FANUC industrial robots in laboratory sessions. Students will also be introduced to microprocessors, microcontrollers, and the theory and design of logic circuits.

“I’m reminded that the basics are really essential in learning so I can move on to the harder stuff.”

-Christopher B., Prescott High School
