    PLTW Imagine What You Could do! 

    Design and Drawing for Production

    Engineers make a world of difference!
    Students are introduced to the engineering design process, applying math, science, and engineering
    standards to identify and design solutions to a variety of real problems. They work both individually and
    in collaborative teams to develop and document design solutions using engineering notebooks and 3D
    modeling software.
    Are you ready to design the future?

    Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CIM)

    Manufacturing transforms ideas into products. This course provides an opportunity for students to develop
    a better understanding of this innovative and exciting industry.
    Students learn about manufacturing processes, product design, robotics, and automation. Students develop
    their knowledge and skills of Computer Aided Design and Manufacturing to produce products using a
    Computer Numerical Controlled (CNC) mill. Students apply the knowledge and skills gained in this course
    as they collaborate to design, build, and program factory system models.
    Manufacturing provides products we use daily. How can a student become part of it?

    Digital Electronics

    Open doors to understanding electronics and foundations in circuit design.
    Digital electronics is the foundation of all modern electronic devices such as cellular phones, MP3 players,
    laptop computers, digital cameras, high definition televisions, etc. Students learn the digital circuit design
    process to create circuits and present solutions that can improve people’s lives.
    Learn how advancements in foundational electronic components and digital circuit design processes have
    transformed the world around you.

    Principles of Engineering

    Through problems that engage and challenge, students explore a broad range of engineering topics,
    including mechanisms, the strength of materials and structures, automation, and motion. Students develop
    skills in problem solving, research, and design while learning strategies for design process documentation,
    collaboration, and presentation.
    What type of engineer or engineering technologist would you like to be?

    Engineering Design and Development

    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, ready to take on any post-secondary program or career.
