Courses Taught

PLTW Introduction to Engineering Design Login

Introduction to Engineering Design is an introductory course that develops student problem solving skills with emphasis placed on the development of three-dimensional computer models.  Students will learn a problem solving design process and how it is used to design products.  A Computer Aided Design (CAD) software program will be used to create, analyze, and evaluate the designs.  The techniques learned and equipment used is state of the art and currently being used by engineers throughout the country.

Principles of Engineering is a broad-based survey course designed to provide exposure to a variety of engineering topics and systems. Students’ problem solving skills will be enhanced through application of the design process. Hands-on projects include design and construction of a compound simple machine, a virtual bridge, a computer controlled marble sorter, and a ping pong ball launcher. These projects provide “real world” applications of the engineering theory taught as part of the class. Topics include simple machines and gears, fluid systems, control systems, electrical systems, statics, strength of materials, thermodynamics, and kinematics. Successful completion of this course meets the computer science requirement for graduation.


Course Calendars are available on the Learning Management System (LMS). To access the LMS, you should obtain your student's login credential. There is no parent login for this website. https://pltw.instructure.com/feeds/calendars/user_NQs2pOFm6oRiFD6W9ajdWdh9RRU8IPCRuDCv8cDj.ics
