PLTW PRE-ENGINEERING ACADEMY
Seeing what doesn’t exist yet. That’s our strength!
The PLTW Pre-Engineering Academy is for students who want to learn more about engineering, math and science and who want a career in the engineering field.
Students learn to think critically, work collaboratively and explore how math and science work in his or her everyday life. They also 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 Pre-Engineering Academy, which is designed to prepare students for careers or post-secondary study of STEM fields.
Student may earn certification from WorkKeys.
