The Romeo Engineering and Technology Center was designed to give students in the Romeo Schools the most advanced career and technical education programs in the state.
This state of the art building was designed by Romeo High School staff and community members to support our engaging and relevant programs in electronics, computer repair, emergency medical services, machining, drafting and design, business, accounting, desktop publishing, and marketing. In addition, the design team looked at three other high demand occupations in Macomb county and added construction trades, culinary arts, and child care programs to the building.
These programs give students additional opportunities for training, whether they are directly entering the workforce or pursuing a post secondary program after they graduate from high school. The building also houses an advanced science, mathematics, and engineering program designed to serve exceptional 9th through 12th grade students in high school.

They have opportunities to study all of these subjects and see the relationships that exist between them. The building houses chemistry, physics, mathematics and fabrication labs for students to gain hands-on experience during their studies. At the conclusion of the program, students have the opportunity to take advanced placement exams in each area of study to attain college credits.
