Robotics & Pre-Engineering

Robotics & Pre-Engineering

Take a sneak peek at what we offer in Robotics and Pre-Engineering above!

What does a certificate of completion of the Robotics and Pre-Engineering pathway show? It represents several things: Proficiency in building, programming, designing, and creating, expertise in working with a team and independently, as well as the ability – and drive – to invent. Our students are masterminds with coding. They sharpen their entrepreneurship skills, while learning what makes a distinguished professional.

By working with industry partners in hands-on projects, receiving meaningful certifications, learning by doing, and earning college credits through New England Institute of Technology, our students are on their way to become the next wave of experts sculpting the engineering world as we know it.
