Friendswood High School engineering teacher attends College of the Mainland articulated credit works
Dan Ruley, an engineering teacher at Friendswood High School, recently participated in an articulated credit workshop at the College of the Mainland.
Articulated credits are programs that prepare individuals to study a technical career in college. Mainland is working with area educators to teach them about the expanding options at the college. Students are able to begin a technical college major while in high school and continue the same course of study when they get to Mainland.
Ruley is in his first year at FHS. His classes are likely to be chosen as an articulated credit. Students who take his classes and choose to continue at Mainland will be much closer to receiving an associate of applied science degree in a certain career field. The degrees can also help them work toward bachelor's in applied arts and technology or arts and sciences, according to a press release.
The following three classes at FHS will receive articulated credit: introduction to engineering design provides computer aided design credit, civil engineering and architecture provides architectural drafting credit and engineering design and development provides advanced computer aided drawing credit. To earn the credits at Mainland, students must earn grades of 80 or higher.
Friendswood High School is at 702 Greenbriar Ave.
