Pre-Engineering: Project Lead The Way

Offered at Easton High School and the first two courses are offered at St. Michaels Middle/High School

The PLTW Pathway to Engineering (PTE) program is a sequence of courses, which follows a proven, hands-on, real-world, problem-solving approach to learning. Throughout PTE, students learn and apply the design process, acquire strong teamwork and communication proficiency, and develop organizational, critical-thinking, and problem-solving skills. PTE courses complement traditional mathematics and science courses and can serve as the foundation for STEM-centered or specialized academies. The program is designed to prepare students to pursue a post-secondary education and careers in the engineering field.

Successful students may obtain college credits through University of Maryland-Baltimore County, Rochester Institute of Technology, and all other Project Lead The Way (PLTW) Affiliate colleges and universities.
