The Grand Haven Technology Education Department focuses on activity-project-problem-based (APPB) learning. Autodesk Inventor 3D Solid Modeling Design Software is used in engineering to generate design solutions and Autodesk Revit Building Information Modeling (BIM) software is used in architecture for planning and design. Prototypes of design solutions are created using Stratasys Dimension SST 768 3D Printer.
Moving to Semesters for 2014/15 School Year. New courses and new focus: Introduction to Engineering Design, Engineering Design and Development, Architectural Design, and iCreate360.
