Students in the Engineering Academy concentrate to put together mechanical projects.

In the Classroom

Another STEM industry being rocked by the constant demand for a skilled workforce is that of Engineering and Computer Science. HSI Academies Foundation has taken on this challenge to bridge the gap by equipping students with mechanical knowledge, as well as the beginning concepts behind computer science. Academy students become proficient in SOLIDWORKS, an industry standard, leading-edge software used for designing and manufacturing products enabling students to see their ideas and design concepts materialize before their own eyes. They are encouraged to explore their creative talents by designing and building their own projects, including functioning skateboards, 3D CAD Models, robotic devices, and innovative solutions to real-world problems.

Outside of the Classroom

Academy students get up close and personal with some of Orange County’s largest high technology manufacturing companies from aerospace, medical device development, biotechnology, and many more whose global headquarters sit right in our own backyard! What better way for Academy students to makeing strides in this industry than through powerful internships, site tours and mentorships.

Innovative opportunities in local and national STEM competitions are another way Engineering Academy students can participate in applying their problem-solving, communication and collaborative skills. In addition, competitions allow students to create on-the-spot real-world solutions for robotics and coding challenges.

Engineering and computer science students gather in the gymnasium to cheer on the Valley High School Falcons.
