Engineers design! How do you make a roller coaster more exciting? Better engineering! That's just one of the many fields where engineering design makes a difference -- from aerospace to industrial, from environmental to electrical, engineers are needed in many fields. Get your start in Engineering -- or just see if it's something you might like -- by taking high school courses in Engineering at Sterling Academy! We offer the course Concepts of Engineering and Technology, a one-semester course (0.5 credit).
Full-time students at Sterling Academy can take this course for their electives. If you are a full-time student at another school but your school does not offer this course, you can enroll at Sterling Academy part-time and take the class; the course is 100% online, and since we are an accredited school, you can easily transfer the credit from these back to your high school.
Note: The engineering course requires software that only works on the Windows operating system.
