Explore the Possibilities 2019; Engineering, Trades & Technology Showcase
Students from throughout the Wasatch Front North Region embarked on hands-on learning experience the past few weeks and learned how to pursue their Career and Technical Education (CTE) options.
The Wasatch Front North Region hosted two events – one at the Ogden-Weber Technical College on Nov. 21 and one at the Davis Technical College on Dec. 13.
Juniors and seniors from both Ogden and Weber School Districts attended the “Explore” event at the Ogden-Weber Technical College (OWTC). While students from both Morgan and Davis School District attended the Davis Technical College (DTC) for their exploratory experience.
Students were able to go to several classes where the faculty from Weber State University (WSU), Davis Technical College (DTC) and OWTC taught them about the career and education options in the field.
- Architecture, Civil & Engineering
- Automation & Robotics
- Automotive Technology
- Business Office Administration
- Composite Materials Technology
- Construction Management & Apprenticeship
- Digital Media Design
- Heavy Duty Diesel
- Information Technology
- Injection Molding/Biomedical Manufacturing
- Metal Fabrication
- Nondestructive Inspection (NDI)

Both events closed with lunch and guest speakers. Students were also entered to win door prizes from each of the three partnering institutions. Attendees at the OWTC event were treated to a lunch provided by the OWTC’s students in their culinary program. It was a great opportunity to a CTE program in action.
Students at both events left with tangible, first-hand knowledge from the courses they attended. The instructors were highly engaged and enthusiastic about their fields.
