Pre-Engineering

 

Whether a student is curious to understand more about engineering, has decided to pursue it as a career, or simply wants to learn to think critically, work collaboratively, and explore how math and science work in his or her everyday life, the PLTW Engineering program provides a track for success. Students engage in open-ended problem solving, learn and apply the engineering design process, and develop vital skills such as teamwork, communication, and critical thinking. While investigating topics such as aerodynamics and astronautics, environmental sustainability, and digital electronics and circuit design, students use the same industry-leading technology and software as the world’s top companies. In the capstone course, students have the opportunity to identify a problem they are passionate about solving and develop a solution using the engineering design process. The exciting and challenging fields of engineering come alive in the PLTW Engineering program, which is designed to prepare students for careers or post-secondary study of STEM fields.
