The Orange County Department of Education provides students, educators and administrators from across the county, resources and training to support students success in Engineering and STEM.
The Engineering and Design pathway programs throughout Orange County school districts foster the integration of mathematics and engineering into real-world applications, while sparking students' creative drive to design new ideas. Students in our engineering and design pathways, learn strong problem- solving and analytical skills, the ability to work as part of a team, and a strong work ethic.
"If science is the study of the 'found,' engineering is the study of the 'made.' Artifacts of human design are essential components of everyday life. Every time we turn on a light, ride a car, view a television, use a computer, or do virtually anything else, we reap the benefits of engineering."
