DENVILLE, NJ - Morristown High School students who are part of the MHS S.T.E.M Academy were informed this week of a new partnership between the Morris County Vocational School District and the County College of Morris.
The Share Time Engineering Design and Advanced Manufacturing (EDAM) Program will provide junior and seniors in high school the opportunity to participate in half-day sessions where students can receive daily career and technical training as part of their school program. Upon graduation from high school, the 2 year program will allow students to earn 32 college credits from CCM as well as Certificates of Achievement in Mechanical Computer Aided Drafting and Engineering Technology.
EDAM is designed for students with an interest in engineering, computer applications and manufacturing who will learn through college-level work and hand-on activities. Students will utilize cutting edge technologies in a newly renovated state of the art facility at CCM, and will be prepared for careers in a growing industry.
Coursework includes basic engineering graphics, computer-aided drafting, materials for engineering technology, technical computer applications, mechanical prototyping, and electricity and electronics. The program will also include work-based learning experiences through industry partnerships.
Any interested sophomore students and their families are invited to learn about this two-year half day program, on Wednesday January 13 at 6pm, County College of Morris in Sheffield Hall, first floor.
