The National Academy Foundation (NAF) Academy of Engineering answers an acute need for engineers in the United States by educating high school students in the principles of engineering and preparing them to pursue opportunities in this growing field.

College and Career Readiness

In addition to learning from career-focused curricula and working on collaborative projects, AOE students gain critical career knowledge through a series of work-based learning experiences both inside and outside of the classroom. These include job shadowing events, mock interviews, résumé writing workshops, and the culminating experience—a compensated internship. Local business partners work with educators to provide these opportunities to round out students’ education. By serving on advisory boards and as mentors, business partners provide real world connections that help students understand the pathways to career success.

Career Possibilities

Architectural, aeronautical, civil, chemical, computer, electrical, industrial, mechanical, structural, and manufacturing engineering.
