OverviewPosted by Nell Achtmeyer on 5/5/2014
OverviewThe High School Transition Program (HST) at Oregon Institute of Technology gives qualified high school students the opportunity to come to the Wilsonville campus and take a college course for Oregon Tech credit for a fraction of the cost. Students participating in HST must meet with the HST coordinator every term to ensure proper advisement and registration.

Emphasis Areas and CoursesPosted by Nell Achtmeyer on 5/5/2014Each emphasis area provides a list of classes that orients a student toward healthcare careers or a specific engineering field. Most classes have a prerequisite or co-requisites. Interested students should begin working with Oregon Tech to identify classes that they should pursue. Most of the courses in the HST program are transferable to other institutions. Students are encouraged to work with their college of choice to get confirmation on how the course will transfer to the college they plan on attending. We also encourage high school students to look into these opportunities early in their quest to gain college-level credit in high school. Starting one of the "bundles" in your junior year will assist a student in moving through the entire sequence of classes.Health Science & TechnologyThis emphasis area includes the university level sequence in Anatomy & Physiology (with laboratory) which is a core requirement to all health science programs. Additionally, students get an overview of different health science programs by taking the respective introductory courses: MT103-- Introduction to Medical Imaging, CLS100-- Introduction to Clinical Laboratory Sciences, and EMS 115 & EMS 151/152. Students completing the EMS 151/152 courses can sit for the National Registry examination to receive the Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) certification.
Introduction to EngineeringThe introduction to engineering program is comprised of 6 courses designed to provide a solid background in engineering at the university level and an overview of the different engineering disciplines (software & embedded engineering, electrical & electronics engineering, renewable energy engineering, and mechanical engineering). In this program, students learn 1) how to program in three programming languages (C++, LabVIEW and MATLAB), 2) how to analyze and design digital circuits and systems, 3) how to analyze electrical circuits, 4) how to use renewable energy sources, and 5) how to apply fundamental principles of mechanics of rigid bodies.
- BIO 231, 232, 233 -- Anatomy & Physiology I, II, II (No prerequisite for BIO 23I, but the student needs to move through the sequence)

- CLS 100 -- Introduction to Clinical Laboratory Science
- EMS 115 -- Introduction to Emergency Medical Services (EMS)
- EMS 151 & 152 -- Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) I, II
- ENGR 267-- Engineering Programming
