Project Lead the Way: Engineering


Project Lead the Way:


The Project Lead The Way (PLTW) Engineering program prepares students for further education and careers in engineering and engineering technology. Students complete foundation-level courses in Engineering, including Principles of Engineering, Introduction to Engineering Design, and Digital Electronics. Students then select an area of specialization, including Computer Integrated Manufacturing, Civil Engineering and Architecture, Aerospace Engineering, or Biotechnical Engineering. In the final course, students also complete an industry-mentored capstone project in Engineering Design and Development.
