Medford Engineering Academy
Welcome to the Burlington County Institute of Technology Medford Campus Engineering Academy!
Courses in this Academy support the Rowan @ Burlington County Associate's Degree in Electrical Engineering Technology
The Medford Engineering Academy Courses are taught by Mrs. Liz Humphrey, who holds a B.S. in Electronics Engineering Technology from DeVry Institute of Technology and has worked in the space industry with Lockheed Martin for 17 years. Her project experience includes work on civil weather satellites like GOES-R to communication satellites serving other countries such as Japan and Canada. Currently, she is pursuing her Master's Degree in Career and Technical Education through Ball State University.
Mrs. Humphrey is passionate about showing students how their learning applies in the workplace, as well as in their personal lives. She personally developed the electronic workstation layout in the shop, and strives to integrate learning technology where appropriate. Students are expected to learn how to manage their time and workload in order to prepare themselves for life beyond high school. This is Mrs. Humphrey's 5th year of teaching at the BCIT Medford Engineering Academy.
"Engineering is a process for life, which teaches us the critical thinking skills and perseverance to tackle any problem."

3D Printer and Soluble Support Washtub
uPrint SE Plus
The Engineering Academy utilizes the Stratasys uPrint SE Plus 3D Printer to teach students how to produce prototypes from 3D modeling software. The 3D Printer builds models out of ABS Plus Plastic filament, and creates support for the model that is soluble using a solvent in water. The support material is washed away using the SCA1200-HT washtub.
