The focus of Engineering is to expose students to engineering standards through the design process, research, and data analysis. Students are given the opportunity to develop these skills and understand engineering concepts through Project Lead Their Way (PLTW). The exploration of various technology systems and manufacturing processes shows students how engineers use math, science and technology to solve problems to benefit people. This program prepares learners for post-secondary learning in all engineering fields or entry-level related careers in engineering technology. These students are also eligible for the Manufacturing Program through DTCC, starting their Junior year.
