Which students would benefit from enrolling in a pre-engineering course?
A. Any student who is enrolled in a college preparatory math course is eligible for the PLTW pre-engineering program. Students who also have an interest in science and math should be encouraged to consider the program as a means of career exploration. Those who find the engineering program of interest can complete all 5 courses in the sequence to become fully prepared for a 2 or 4 year college program in engineering or engineering technology. Others will find out in high school that engineering is not for them and will have time to prepare for another career path.
What are the High School courses in the PLTW program?
A. There are 5 courses in the PLTW High School Pre-engineering Program, as follows:
A course that teaches problem-solving skills using a design development process for products. Models of product solutions are created, analyzed and communicated using solid modeling computer design software. In NYS, the course is called Design and Drawing for Production and follows the syllabus developed by the State Education Department.
A course in applied logic that encompasses the application of electronic circuits and devices. Computer simulation software is used to design and test digital circuitry prior to the actual construction of
