#CTEMonth Westmont High School Industrial and Technology Education

As part of CTE month, we are highlighting CUHSD’s Career Technical Education (CTE) programs in newsletters and on social media using the hashtag #CTEMonth.

This week we are highlighting the Industrial and Technology Education Department at Westmont High School, which just added a new and improved manufacturing facility this school year. The manufacturing technology class gives students the opportunity to gain hands-on experience working in the industrial and technology fields to further prepare for future college and careers through the use of welding equipment, engine lathes and the full-functional wood shop.


"This is a life skill, college skill, job skill; all those things you're going to be learning here," said industrial tech teacher Brett Peterson.

The class is not only meant to prepare students for the future but to develop a different way of learning for the students.  Mr. Peterson reiterated this class helps students learn math skills through this applied, hands-on curriculum.
