START your career while in school

Career pathways span secondary and postsecondary education, align to employer needs and careers, and provide high-quality education, training, and support services for youth and adults.

In Delaware, career pathways begin in the public education system (K-12) through Career and Technical Education (CTE) pathways offered in charter, comprehensive, and technical school districts. These pathways continue through adult education, occupational training programs, and postsecondary programs that are administered by partnering state agencies, institutions of higher education, and other service providers.

Architectural Engineering Technology

The Architectural Engineering Technology (AET) pathway engages students in the world of construction and architecture through coursework focusing on site selection, drafting, architectural, and engineering planning, budgeting, cost estimating, production, permits, contracting, work timetables, and project management. Students utilize strategies to solve open-ended problems while they learn how to apply technical skills, knowledge, documentation techniques, and processes using modern, industry-leading technology and software.

Work-based learning experiences and industry-mentored projects will introduce students to a wide array of careers such as architects, civil engineers, construction management, cost estimators, and drafters. The AET program of study will lead to students earning AutoCAD and Revit certification, dual enrollment for up to 10 credits from Delaware Technical and Community College (Delaware Technical Community College), and advanced skills in product data management (PDM) and building information modeling (BIM).

“Now I know what I want to do with my life, thanks to the focus on careers at William Penn. At first, I picked culinary arts because I didn’t know what else to do. But I fell in love with it!”
