College Credit for Engineering at Copley High School
The Ohio Board of Regents has partnered with Copley High School and Engineering Instructor Mr. Harder to offer free college credit to students who complete a one year engineering program at the High School. This program is the first of its kind, a pilot, for a non-career technical public high school program.
After students complete a successful year in the Engineering and Design Class, offered by Mr. Harder, they will need to complete a knowledge and skills test and then fill out the appropriate paperwork. Once students complete the test and paperwork, they will receive credit which in turn can be used as course credit at a large number of colleges and technical schools. The students will also complete 1 fine art or 1 technology credit, which will fulfill their high school graduation requirements. One may find a list of schools where the credit will be accepted at https://student-transfer.ohiohighered.org: Select High School > Career-Technical Credit, then fill in steps 1 and 2, and then select Search. However, the list will not be available until the start of the 2013-14 school year.
In the Engineering and Design Class, students become adept at reading and understanding engineering concepts, drawings, and how to complete the design process. In the past, students who have completed this course at Copley High School have reported back to the instructor, Mr. Harder: “I had a leg up on my competition,” “The stuff we did in high school was harder than in college; I was always ahead.” This new program will offer students the opportunity to discover if they would like to enter the field of engineering, architecture, or technology while simultaneously earning college credit. Having this solid background in engineering along with receiving college credit will give students an advantage as they begin college.
