Green Technology & Design

Grades 11-12
Students will study Computer Aided Drafting (CAD) programs as well as begin to understand alternative energy during this two year course. Students will gain a working knowledge of drafting fundamentals in mechanical, architectural, and civil drafting. Students will then pair this knowledge with solar and wind energy fundamentals.


College Credit
CTE Credit by Exam
Upon graduation from high school, students can have college credit for their high school course work. The ‘blue’ CTE Credit by Exam application may be obtained from your counselor. Your high school administrator or counselor will verify the student maintained a “B” or better in their Career and Technical Education (CTE) course work, 90% attendance, and a passing score on their Technical Skill Assessment (TSA). Students will turn this form into admissions when they apply to Crowder College. Once the coursework has been approved by Crowder College and the student has complete 12 credits of instruction at Crowder College, the CTE Credit by Exam coursework will be added to the student’s Crowder College transcript. There is a $50 fee for each course.

Dual Credit
The Dual Credit Program, offered through Crowder College, allows high school students, while still attending the high school program at Crowder College Technical Education Center, the opportunity to enroll in and receive both high school and college credit during normal class hours. Participation in the dual credit program enables high school students to get a “head start” on their college career as well as prepare them for the challenges of college courses.

Requirements include:

  • Student has completed their sophomore year of high school and be 16 years of age
  • Has at least a 3.0 grade point average on a 4.0 scale
  • Be recommended for admission by a high school counselor
  • See other Student Requirements and Student Expectations on the Crowder College Web Site

This opportunity will cost the student $60 per credit hour to be paid while the student is enrolled in the high school course. The course work will appear on the student’s Crowder College Transcript once the high school course is finished.
