Automotive Engineering

What is it?

Automotive Classes

Jason's interest is in automotive. His dream is to one day build a highly efficient, energy-conscious automobile that moves like lightning! But first, he must learn all the elements it takes to create such a vehicle. Jason is considering Automotive Engineering, along with several other classes in Career and Technical Education (CTE) at his local BOCES. Two of which are Automotive Skills and Auto Technology. He will also participate in his school's Automotive Club, which offers hands-on learning and opportunities for competitions.


In this step:

  • Watch the video and make note of relevant details.

  • What important concept did you learn? 

  • Read AE Article. What other classes will compliment learning automotive engineering?

Flight Simulation

Ritu was invited to be part of the upcoming GAMA Aviation Design Challenge competition team. It’s an exciting opportunity, giving her experience in flight simulation and intensive studies in understanding the science of flight and airplane design. To also give her aircraft flight training, Ritu decided to take the BOCES Aviation Operations course, which is credited toward a Private Pilot License.


In this step:

  • Review the details of the GAMA competition and make note of a few important points needed for Ritu and her team to be successful.

  • Watch the video and share your feedback.
