The Institute of Engineering
Let's dream it and do it! Engineering students are supported in their quest to see the potential solutions to real-world challenges.
An interactive, project-based curriculum develops hands-on skills to solve complex problems that can affect true change in the lives of others. Students master software and prototyping tools used in the industry. Courses cover the primary topics of university engineering programs but also include a philosophy of engineering and an introduction to the industry design review process.
To solve world problems through innovative thought and hearts of service.
Our world-class, state-of-the-art engineering curriculum, taught by industry professionals and expert faculty, is designed to give students real-world opportunities and projects in the disciplines of aerospace, biomedical, electronic, environmental, mechatronics, and architecture. Each pathway ends with an independent senior capstone project.
Ross Family IDEA Lab
Our 14,000-square-foot Ross Family IDEA Lab (Innovation, Design, Engineering, Aeronautical) is home to the Institute of Engineering and a vortex of creativity, invention, amazement, and discovery. The facility is like no other high school science lab in the state of California, giving OCS students a jump in STEM career paths (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math).
