Engineering and Technology

Teacher: Francis Rutherford

After working in a violin shop the Bay Area and playing in professional orchestras, I moved to Mendocino in the mid-80’s and worked in tech support specializing in plumbing/electrical/water systems. I’ve been teaching the Electronics program at MHS for the past 20 years, and teaching the E-Lab engineering for the past 3 years. Both programs emphasize real world skills, learning by doing.
