Industry Valued Credential: AutoDesk Certified User Certification

Strong design software skills are a great asset in both the academic and professional arenas. Teaching students to use state-of-the-art Autodesk® design software such as AutoCAD, Inventor, Revit, Maya, 3DS Max, and Fusion 360, along with providing Autodesk Certified User certification gives them a significant advantage in achieving college or career success.

SPARTAN SCHOOL OF TECHNOLOGY

Students interested in technology may apply to the academy as 8th grade students. Participating students get a rigorous project-based and hands-on introduction to the skills and knowledge needed for the technology career pathway, while building 21st century competencies valuable to any career.

In addition to the core high school curriculum, School of Technology students study a series of technology-focused topics through a project-based learning framework. Courses include Makerspace I, Makerspace II, Engineering Graphics and Intro to CAD, Applied Computer Aided Design, and AP Computer Science Principles. School of Technology students also build communication, collaboration and critical thinking skills through an extensive series of real-world learning experiences. Course credit is earned through the memorandum of understanding with New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) and will allow students to earn course credit through  NJIT’s Pre-College program. Students must apply and be accepted to the program and receive a “C” or higher for NJIT credit.

Students are required to participate in Structured Learning Experiences such as job shadowing, volunteer opportunities, school-based enterprises, and paid and unpaid internships with local businesses. Additionally students are required to be active members of Technology Student Association (TSA). The Technology Student Association enhances personal development, leadership, and career opportunities in STEM, whereby members apply and integrate these concepts through intracurricular activities, competitions, and related programs.
