    OVERVIEW
    Engineering isn’t just a college major; it’s a job and a profession— and one in demand and well paid! Engineers have the problem-solving skills to fix a problem, but more than that, they are responsible for creating solutions to problems that we aren’t even aware of yet. There’s a wide variety of engineering concentrations to choose from: aeronautical, chemical, computer, environmental, mechanical, electrical, petroleum and more. Engineers are used in almost every industry. Engineers are people who want to make things better, faster, stronger, simpler, smarter, quicker, quieter, greener and more efficient.
     
    Right now is the perfect time to start preparing for your future in engineering. What can you do while you are in high school? Take relevant classes, participate in pre-college summer programs, and speak with actual engineers!

    WEGA - ENGINEERING AND GEOSCIENCES ACADEMY  

    Within the Engineering Academy, there is an elite program requiring acceptance through an application process.  The Westside Engineering and Geosciences Academy, better known as WEGA, offers a unique chance for students to gain perspective and insight into the engineering field.  Students in this academy are engaged in rigorous academics and hands on projects.  Teamwork and leadership skills are emphasized throughout the program, and organization is stressed from the beginning as essential for success.  Problem-based learning and critical thinking skills are fostered, as they are essential to the engineering profession.  In addition, through a partnership with the Independent Petroleum Association of America, we are able to offer students many opportunities to explore engineering in the community.
