    APPLIED ENGINEERING TECHNOLOGY III  
    This course provides opportunities for students to apply their acquired knowledge and skills in engineering scenarios. The course features multiple options for providing context-based projects oriented to specific fields of engineering. This feature enables instruction in complex projects involving multi-faceted project teams by providing instruction oriented to four key engineering disciplines: mechanical, electrical, civil, and environmental

    Digital Media Technology

    This course will introduce students to the technical and creative demands of video editing. Students will learn basic camera operation and filming techniques to capture video and use Adobe Premiere Pro to edit video; learning pre-production, production, and post-production. Using professional edit samples from film and television as study pieces, students will be able to identify and analyze pace, mood, style, and effect. Students will demonstrate acquired knowledge and skill to create a series of productions. These productions/projects will include (but not limited to) movie trailers, PSAs, commercials/ads, tutorials and think pieces. Using a hands-on approach to learning, students will be prepared to earn Industry Certification(s).
