Engineering-Project Lead The Way
The nationally recognized program, Project Lead The Way, has developed a sequence of courses which, when combined with college preparatory mathematics and science courses in high school, introduces students to the scope, rigor and discipline of engineering and engineering technology prior to entering college. This is a program that will help students understand the field of engineering/engineering technology. Students use 3-D computer modeling software and explore various technology systems and manufacturing processes to learn how engineers and technicians use math, science and technology in an engineering problem solving process to benefit people. The program also includes concerns about social and political consequences of technological change. This program is highly recommended for those students planning to major in engineering. Students receive computer science credit for these classes. Students may receive college credit each year by passing a national exam and AP credit for some courses.
Courses Include:Freshman Classes: Introduction to Engineering, Computer Science Essentials
Sophomore Classes: Principles of Engineering, Digital ElectronicsJunior/Senior Classes: Aerospace Engineering, Environmental Sustainability, Computer Integrated Manufacturing, Computer Science Principles, Civil Engineering and Architecture, Computer Science Applications, Cyber-Security, and Computer Controlled Machinery (AMT102)Senior Class: Engineering Design & Development
