Gateway to Opportunity

The majority of the buildings at CEI are over 40 years old. They are inadequate for today’s technology-based careers. CEI is the only institution in Idaho without a Career and Technical Education (CTE) building.

Programs and Curriculum will include Cyber, ESTEC (Energy Systems), Nuclear Technician, Computer Network Technician, Software/Web, Radiation Safety, Agri-Tech, Engineering Technician, GIS Modeling/Virtual Reality, Machine Tool Technology/Advanced Manufacturing, Battery, and Solar.
