Welcome


 
Welcome to the Brahma Tech Academy Page!
 
 
Program Overview:
 
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. This comprehensive four year program will enhance the current education program by offering students advanced study in a specific field or exploratory options in a variety of STEM disciplines. Brahma Tech is designed for highly motivated and talented students who have a special interest and an aptitude in science, technology, engineering, and/or mathematics and value an opportunity to begin preparing for a rewarding career in the STEM fields.
 
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, "Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) occupations are projected to grow over two times faster than the total for all occupations in the next decade. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) 2019–29 employment projections show that occupations in the STEM field are expected to grow 8.0 percent by 2029, compared with 3.7 percent for all occupations."
 
"Even though many STEM occupations are expected to enjoy faster than average employment growth in the 2019–29 decade, high demand for computer occupations is largely behind the expected increase in STEM employment in the next decade." Visit the U. S. Bureau of Labor Statistics website for Projected employment by STEM occupational group.
 
 
The U. S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports, "Employment of information security analysts is projected to grow 31 percent from 2019 to 2029, 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.
