Welcome


 
Welcome to the Brahma Tech Academy Page!
 
Brahma Tech is a four year curriculum-driven academic diploma program with an emphasis on the relevance and application of STEM - science, technology, engineering, and mathematics in today's workplace.
 
Federal and state officials frequently highlight the importance of STEM education to the nation's economic well-being.
 
According to the U. S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, "For the foreseeable future of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics jobs in the US, nearly 3 out of 4 new job openings and 3 out of 5 total job openings are going to be in computing!" 
 
"Most of these jobs will require advanced computing skills that you will only gain by studying computer science, information systems, and/or software engineering."
 
 
"Employment of information security analysts is projected to grow 32 percent from 2018 to 2028, much faster than the average for all occupations. Demand for information security analysts is expected to be very high, as these analysts will be needed to create innovative solutions to prevent hackers from stealing critical information or causing problems for computer networks."
 
 
Our goal is to address the need for a stronger and more specific STEM education by equipping our students with a competent set of skills in preparation to pursue degrees in these critical fields.
 
The Brahma Tech curriculum, spanning four years of high school, consists of an entry-level course called Computer Systems, followed by designated courses in one of four strands of the student's choice and concluding with a 150-hour internship in an appropriate field. Students who successfully complete the program will receive a STEM diploma and have the honor of wearing the academy stole at graduation.
