Engineering, Construction, & Design


Engineering, Construction, & Design Academy


Rosemont High School’s Engineering, Construction, & Design Academy (ECD) students will thrive in a challenging, yet supportive and integrated academic program while exploring and solving real world problems through industry sponsored project-focused experiences.


RHS CREATE Students Visit the Ice Blocks Construction Project

Students from CREATE visited the Ice Blocks construction project on R Street with their mentors, Ike (Lionakis Architects), Mike (Nacht & Lewis Architects), and Ryan (Ascent Builders). After the tour of the mixed use project, the team headed over to take a tour of the offices of Nacht & Lewis – a repurposed paint store. The CREATE team’s challenge this year is to plan, design, and budget the repurposing of the paint shop at the railyards. Presentations are in March.

Outcomes Of The Academy

Students will acquire experience and knowledge of Computer Aided Drafting & Design (CADD). CADD is the use of computer technology for drawing and designs (2D and 3D) that is used by professionals in a variety of technological fields. In addition, students learn how to access the Control System, a device that regulates or directs other behaviors of other devices. Students also focus on Robotics, programming, and engineering design.



There are are a variety of opportunities and events that expose students to the real world of Engineering. Students will have an opportunity to visit the SMUD (Sacramento Municipal Utilities District) hedge training facility where  line workers and technicians are trained in their apprenticeship program. Additionally, students will be able to view a fully operational electric facility at Roseville Electric.
