The Middlesex County Academy for Science, Mathematics and Engineering Technologies is a highly focused four year full time program. Studies are multi-disciplinary with technology integrated throughout each program. One of the things that makes this school so attractive is that students are afforded the opportunity to earn college credits through the Middlesex County College High School Scholars program. One hundred percent of Academy students pursue a college education.
Our four year 40 credit Engineering Program offers students the opportunity to explore the areas of Civil/Mechanical and Electronic/Computer Engineering Technologies from both the theoretical and applied perspectives. Also included are applications of computer aided design and automated data collection techniques that are driving the nature of professional practice. It culminates with the CARTS Project, Combining Academic Research and Technical Studies with the senior thesis.
Challenges, project based curriculum, technology and collaborative learning are all part of the mission of the Middlesex County Academy for Science, Mathematics and Engineering Technologies. It is essential for our students to understand scientific literacy in an ever-changing global world. Students demonstrate an understanding of scientific concepts and processes required for personal decision making, participation in civic and cultural affairs and economic productivity. Students work on hands-on activities and view virtual labs that integrate technology into their coursework. Critical thinking and problem solving skills are encouraged as students work collaboratively on constructing a hypothesis, collecting and analyzing data and presenting results.
