STEM  /  Career & Technology / Engineering
The School of Engineering offers learners a chance to complete their high school education in an environment that is enjoyable to them. Learners in the School of Engineering come from many backgrounds. They do not have to be great at science and math know that they want to be an engineer. What they need to have is a curiosity about the world around them. Our learners like to make a difference in the world around them, they like to take things apart and figure out how they work, they like to build things, they like to create. 
Engineering allows learners to practice classroom lessons on real-world projects. Solar cars, underwater robots, and high powered rockets are just some of the projects our students have worked on. Learners take the knowledge they learn in class and apply it to these projects with the assistance of the instructors. 

Mike has been with CISD since 2003 and started the CHS School of Engineering in 2006.  The School of Engineering is a 4-year pre-college engineering program focusing on design in which learners work on projects that prepare them for college STEM disciplines.  Activities expose learners to design, applications of math and science, electronics, kinematics, and coding.  Learners have begun Swift Playgrounds and Swift as a core component of their coding instruction. In addition to teaching, Mike is the department Instructional Coach. 

Mike was honored as an Apple Distinguished Educator in the spring of 2017.  In 2015, the Metroplex Technology Business Council named Mike the Tech Titan of the Future for High Schools.  Prior to that, Mike was presented with the Excellence in Engineering Education award from National Instruments and was named a runner up for the DiscoverE Educator Award.

Mike is the advisor for several organizations related to the Engineering program: Society of Women Engineers, Society of Minority Engineers, and the Coppell Solar Racing Team.
