This fall, Bryan ISD to open career and tech education center to students

BRYAN, Tex. (KBTX) - Bryan ISD is working to expand education opportunities for its students.

Come fall 2019, the new career and technical education (CTE) center will offer four programs to students: welding, automotive, construction and industrial engineering and robotics. It’s all happening at a 119-acre facility purchased by Bryan ISD last year for $5 million.

“CTE isn’t just your dad’s wood shop anymore,” said Kevin Ross, assistant director of CTE for the district. “Some students are using this CTE training to go straight into the field and start earning good money, and others are using it by taking those skills on to college.”
