Is Advanced Engineering for You?

  • Do you enjoy open-ended, hands-on projects?
  • Are you fascinated with learning how to design?
  • Are you interested in earning college credit while in high school?
  • Do you want to transform your designs into 3D models?

About the Program

The PLTW engineering program allows students to apply engineering, science, math and technology to solve complex, open ended problems in a real-world context. Students focus on the process of defining and solving problems, not on getting the "right" answer. They learn how to apply STEM knowledge, skills, and habits of mind to make the world a better place through innovation.
