PRE-ENGINEERING ACADEMY

Pre-Engineering

Pre-Engineering prepares high school students for success in colleges of engineering.

Math and science are combined with engineering-related classes to provide you with academic preparation and an understanding of engineering to determine your interest in pursuing engineering as a career. If you choose to attend as a junior and senior, you will take the PLTW Pre-Engineering pathway. If you attend for three years, and enroll as a sophomore, you will take the Advanced PLTW Pre-Engineering Academy which includes an extra year of curriculum.

Graduates from the Academy should be planning to obtain a college degree in an engineering discipline.

Pre-Engineering students dive into class with project-based learning and industry-leading 3D software to design your own projects. They use digital logic to build and program robotics. Honors level math and science classes help them to apply math and science to engineering concepts to create their own future.

How much thrust does a model rocket engine produce? Pre-Engineering aerospace students ignite an engine connected to a force sensor to graph the thrust output as the rocket travels through its ascent, coast, and descent phase. (HINT: This engine can produce nearly 200 pounds of thrust!)
