SSM is seeking a Director to continue to develop and grow its Center of Excellence in Engineering into a nationally notable program.  In addition to their traditional core academic classes, students in the Engineering COE devote two full class periods each day to work in Engineering.  In the classroom and lab students are introduced to computer modeling, programming, and learning how to work with woods, metals, and composites. Advanced course offerings include digital circuits, mechanics of materials, machine design, thermodynamics, introduction to architecture, and more.  Students apply their knowledge and explore possible careers paths through work on individual projects.  SSM’s Engineering COE offers students the opportunity for hands-on learning using 3-D printing, a laser cutter, light metal fabrication and woodworking, and virtual reality work stations.
