ENGINEERING AND ENGINEERING TECHNOLOGY
The Engineering program is designed to prepare students for post-secondary engineering and engineering technology programs.


INTRODUCTION TO ENGINEERING DESIGN
IED-PLTW ETYE03

Length: 2 semesters Credit: 2 credits Open to Grades: 10-12
Grade Weight: Advanced Placement
Prerequisite: None
Students dig deep into the engineering design process, applying math, science, and engineering standards to hands-on projects. They work both individually and in teams to design solutions to a variety of problems using 3D modeling software, and use an engineering notebook to document their work.

PRINCIPLES OF ENGINEERING
POE-PLTW ETYE01 

Length: 2 semesters Credit: 2 credits Open to Grades: 9-12
Grade Weight: Honors
Prerequisite: None
Through problems that engage and challenge, students explore a broad range of engineering topics, including mechanisms, the strength of structures and materials, and automation. Students develop skills in problem solving, research, and design while learning strategies for design process documentation, collaboration, and presentation.

CIVIL ENGINEERING & ARCHITECTURE 
CEA-PLTWETYE09

Length: 2 semesters Credit: 2 credits Open to Grades: 10-12
Grade Weight: Advanced Placement
Prerequisite: None
Students learn important aspects of building and site design and development. They apply math, science, and standard engineering practices to design both residential and commercial projects and document their work using 3D architecture design software. Some students have seen these designs come to life through partnerships with local housing organizations.

DIGITAL ELECTRONICS 
DE PLTW ETYE05

Length: 2 semesters Credit:2 credits Open to Grades: 10-12
Grade Weight: Advanced Placement
Prerequisite: None
From smart phones to appliances, digital circuits are all around us. This course provides a foundation for students who are interested in electrical engineering, electronics, or circuit design. Students study topics such as combinational and sequential logic and are exposed to circuit design tools used in industry, including logic gates, integrated circuits, and programmable logic devices.

COMPUTER INTEGRATED MANUFACTURING 
CIM-PLTW ETYE07

Length: 2 semesters Credit:2 credits Open to Grades: 10-12
Grade Weight: Advanced Placement
Prerequisite: IED
Manufactured items are part of everyday life, yet most students have not been introduced to the high-tech, innovative nature of modern manufacturing. This course illuminates the opportunities related to understanding manufacturing. At the same time, it teaches students about manufacturing processes, product design, robotics, and automation. Students can earn a virtual manufacturing badge recognized by the National Manufacturing Badge system.

COMPUTER SCIENCE & SOFTWARE ENGINEERING
CSE-PLTW

Length: 2 semesters Credit:2 credits Grades: 10-12
Grade Weight: Advanced Placement
Prerequisite: None
Open doors in any career with computer science! In CSE, students create apps for mobile devices, automate tasks in a variety of languages, and find patterns in data. Students collaborate to create and present solutions that can improve people’s lives, and weigh the ethical and societal issues of how computing and connectivity are changing the world.

ENGINEERING DESIGN & DEVELOPMENT 
EDD-PLTW ETYE11

Length: 2 semesters Credit:2 credits Open to Grades: 11-12
Grade Weight: Advanced Placement
Prerequisite: Completion of 2 PLTW Courses
The knowledge and skills students acquire throughout PLTW Engineering come together in EDD as they identify an issue and then research, design, and test a solution, ultimately presenting their solution to a panel of engineers. Students apply the professional skills they have developed to document a design process to standards, completing EDD ready to take on any post-secondary program or career.

COMPUTER REPAIR & NETWORKING 
ETYC01 Summer Only

This course provides knowledge and skills in the area of computer hardware, software, design, and networking. This course is designed for the novice to advanced computer user seeking to upgrade his/her skills in order to gain entry into a career in computer repair and networking administration/support. Students will optimize the computer environment and troubleshoot various problems. The course prepares the students for the Comp TIA A+ exam.

AUTOMOTIVE FUNDAMENTALS
ETYA01

Length: 2 semester Credit: 2 credit Open to Grades: 9-12
Grade Weight: General 
Prerequisite: None
Automotive Fundamentals: This lab course introduces students to the basic skills needed to inspect, maintain, and repair automobiles and light trucks that run on gasoline, electricity, or alternative fuels. Instructional units include engine performance, automotive electrical system, integrated computer systems, lubrication, exhaust and emission control, steering and suspension, fuel systems, cooling system, braking, and power train.

AUTO SYSTEM, SERVICE, AND DIAGNOSTICS
