Introduction to Drafting - 2850 

1 quarter, 0.5 credit 
Grade level: 9,10,11,12 
Prerequisite: none 
Course fee: $10.00

This course will teach drafting fundamentals. Students will learn to use drafting instruments necessary to produce different types of drawings. Topics covered will be sketching, lettering, pictorial, sectional, and multi-view drawings. Students will draw solutions to a variety of technical problems.

Introduction to Engineering & Manufacturing - 2860

1 quarter, 0.5 credit 
Grade level: 9,10,11,12 
Prerequisite: Priority registration to 9th & 10th; with open seats going to 11th & 12th  
Course fee: $25.00 

Introduction to Engineering and Manufacturing Technologies is an entry-level course that will provide the student with a solid foundation of basic drafting practices conforming to current industry standards. Line conventions, lettering practice, dimensioning, blueprint reading, 2D and 3D modeling in CAD and projection theory form the basis for experience both on computers and on drawing boards. Students in the program have the opportunity to join Skills USA, Career Technical Student Organization.

Construction Technology - 2870 

1 quarter, 0.5 credit 
Grade level: 9,10,11,12 
Prerequisite: none 
Course fee: $15.00 plus cost of materials

In this course students will learn the fundamentals of structural design and construction. Hand tools and power tools will be used to build projects and to learn to make home repairs. Students also will learn the basics of framing, electrical wiring and plumbing.

Manufacturing and Electronics Technology - 2880

1 quarter, 0.5 credit 
Grade level: 10, 11, and 12 
Prerequisite: Integrated Algebra
Course fee: $15.00 

This course provides students with a basic understanding of manufacturing technologies. Students will use equipment and instruments found in modern industrial settings. Manufacturing technologies included will be computer numeric control, robotics, and pneumatics. Students will learn the principles that are applied in electronic and mechanical devices by designing, building, and testing functioning models. Students will collaborate with classmates on a group design project.

Engineering Technology I - 2885 

2 semesters, 2 credits 
(Tech Prep) Grade level: 11 
Prerequisite: Algebra I with C or higher and 2.5 GPA
Course fee: $25.00 

The Engineering Technology I College Tech Prep program is the first year of a two year engineering program, which offers pre-training in SolidWorks computer-aided design 2D and 3D modeling. Students will be introduced to mechanical and manufacturing theory and design. They will then use these skills to prepare computerized blueprints in order to build and test real-world products. In this course, students will be introduced to reading precision instruments, precision machining; welding, how to fabricate and bend metal. Gain knowledge in the technical manufacturing process, by taking a sample product and design a complete production line, from raw material to a finished product, using routers, flow charts, floor layouts and time charts. Students who meet certain academic criteria may earn college credit through Butler Tech’s collaboration with local technical colleges and universities. All students are expected to join and participate in Skills USA, a career technical student organization. This course is open to juniors only.

Engineering Technology II - 2890 

2 semesters, 2 credits 
(Tech Prep) Grade level: 12 
Prerequisite: Engineering Design I
Course fee: $25.00 

The Engineering Technology II College Tech Prep program is the second year of a two year program, which offers advance training in SolidWorks computer-aided design 2D and 3D modeling and manufacturing. Students will be proficient in mechanical and manufacturing theory and design. They will then use these skills to prepare computerized blueprints in order to build and test real-world products. In this course, students will be proficient in blueprint reading, reading precision instruments and indicators, precision machining; programming CNC controls, shielded metal arc welding (SMAW) and gas metal arc welding (GMAW), how to fabricate and bend metal and gain advanced knowledge in manufacturing and technical concepts. Seniors will decide on their senior project and do a complete manufacturing process from beginning to end, recording all data processes involved. Some of our projects in the past were 6.5 horsepower mini-choppers and 6.5 horsepower barstool racers, full size sand rail with a 1600 VW motor, 90 mph. Jr. dragster, and 12 foot Hovercraft with a 25 hp motor. Students who meet certain academic criteria may earn college credit through Butler Tech’s articulation agreements with technical colleges and universities. All students are expected and participate in Skills USA, a career technical student organization.
