Hello Students and Parents! I am excited to launch into the field of Manufacturing Engineering. Manufacturing is what makes great nations thrive. Today, in the US, we have a skills gap in Manufacturing education. There is a great need for skilled workers as well as knowledgeable leaders and engineers who understand "how things work." Technology and innovation are the drivers of Manufacturing growth and keep our industry current. Manufacturing is changing the impact of our future. By engaging in this course, this is just the beginning of how YOU are helping shape the direction of our future!
- Manufacturing Engineering I & II
- Practicum in Manufacturing Engineering
- This is an advanced course that presents theoretical and practical training for entry-level manufacturing engineering. This course utilizes a hands-on simulation based approach that involves analysis, research, design and development of systems, processes, machines, tools, and equipment in manufacturing.
- Students have the opportunity to develop Computer Aided Designs (CAD) and Computer Numerical Controls (CNC) to convert the CAD designs into numbers as well as learn robotic technologies and processes as related to the field of manufacturing.
- Manufacturing Engineering I & II are advanced courses for the Manufacturing career cluster.
- The goal for this course is to prepare a student for an apprenticeship in a manufacturing environment and/or entry to a college of engineering.
- Manufacturing Engineering II is an FHSPE third math credit option. This course may be taken for elective credit only by students who have earned credit for another course identified as an FHSPE third math credit option.
I grew up in a small town in southeast Iowa, bordering the Mississippi river. I worked in residential construction in high school and college. I graduated from the University of Northern Iowa in 2002 with a degree in Technology Education. My wife and I moved to Katy to start our careers in education in the fall of 2003. I worked at MMJH until the spring of 2017, when I was hired to launch the Manufacturing Engineering program at Miller Career & Technology Center during the summer of 2017. My wife was also hired by KISD in 2003 teaching second grade, but is now the librarian at Winborn Elementary. We have two sons, and a dog. In my free time, I enjoy selling Real Estate, working on household projects, playing with my kids, or going to the dog park. I also really enjoy getting out and exploring local events or exploring new places in and around the Houston Metropolitan area, and I am a sports fan of all the Houston teams as well as the Iowa Hawkeyes!
