    Manufacturing Maintenance

    Course Description: The Mechatronics pathway is a pathway within the Manufacturing Career Cluster. The pathway has been developed to provide students with a strong foundation in the skills needed by advanced manufacturing industries. The pathway includes a core curriculum of three high school courses, followed by a work-based learning experience in the lab and/or additional training specific to the needs of the career. Mechatronics skill sets provide students with the opportunities to pursue rewarding and high-demand careers within the workplace. Mechatronics is a diverse field. It encompasses many inter-related disciplines including: electrical control systems, electrical sytems and electronics, fluid power, Hydraulics and neumatics, mechanical systems, programmable logic controller (PLC), pumps and piping systems, computers, and robotics. Some careers require a formal education, including an undergraduate or graduate degree. This pathway culminates with an opportunity for the student to take the NOCTI Assessment for Manufacturing Technology and Mechatronics as well as the SkillsUSA Automated Manufacturing Technology (AMT) and the Robotics and Automated Technology (RAT) end of pathway assessments.

    Suppy Chain Management and Logistics

    Course Description: The Distribution & Logistics pathway is a pathway within the Transportation, Distribution & Logistics Career Clusters. This pathway has been developed to provide students with a strong foundation in the skills needed by Distribution & Logistics industries. The pathway includes a core curriculum of three high school courses, followed by a work-based learning experience and/or additional training specific to the needs of the career. Distribution & Logistics skill sets provide students with the opportunities to pursue rewarding and high-demand careers within the workplace. The logistics process includes the management of freight, warehousing of materials, inventory management and the packaging of products for storage and shipment. Individuals can choose different employment options in transportation, distribution or logistics. Career choices range from working at airports and air lines, ocean ports, and rail yards, transporting materials between warehouses, or calculating material costs as a cargo services supervisor. Some transportation, distribution or logistics careers provide on‐the‐job training, while other careers require a formal education, including an undergraduate degree. Employment competition will be strong at the management levels, while those with less education and training will find employment growing faster than normal. This pathway culminates with an opportunity for the student to take the NOCTI Assessment for Certified Logistics Technician end of pathway assessments (EOPA).
