Week Four – Sector Focused in the NYCIDY

Engineering and Technology

If you are here it is because you were drawn to Engineering and Technology either by interest or because your Career Zone assessment revealed that you have natural skills, abilities, and talents which would make you good at careers which are related to this sector.

Remember to Connect

As you move through the material and return to the site each time and as you move through your group sessions, remember to always begin with your check-in.

First, return to your Career Zone Landing page and reorient yourself to the Engineering and Technology System Sector.

People in this field use technical knowledge and skill to assemble, inspect, design, maintain, and repair. They provide scientific and diagnostic skills to maintain and repair computer equipment, aircraft, automobiles, buildings, roads, bridges and manufacturing machinery.

Using the buttons below go to each of these websites to complete all the steps in your Pro-Action Plan.
