Course Overview

Principles of Engineering - PLTW®

Students will learn mechanisms, hydraulics, pneumatics, computer interfacing, robotics, computer-aided design, electronics, energy, statics, materials, and kinematics. This course exposes students to major concepts they’ll encounter in a post-secondary engineering course.

Aerospace Engineering - PLTW®

Students will explore the evolution of flight, navigation and control, flight fundamentals, aerospace materials, propulsion, space travel, and orbital mechanics. This course presents alternative applications for aerospace engineering concepts.

 

Computer Integrated Manufacturing - PLTW® 1 & 2

Students will design, create, and program robotic devices. Use CNC (Computer Numeric Control) machinery to produce designs and learn to program the robot to produce a product in quantity.

Engineering Design & Development - PLTW® 1 & 2

Capstone course. Students work in teams for an advanced application of the engineering design process. They will research, define, and validate a technical problem; design, build, and test solutions to the technical problem; and work closely with industry professionals who provide mentoring opportunities.
