Building a future in engineering
Project Lead The Way (PLTW) is a pre-engineering program for K-12 schools that prepares
students to pursue careers in engineering, computer science, and related technical
fields. PLTW provides a fully developed, project-based curriculum. In PLTW classes,
students complete hands-on activities where they apply and reinforce concepts in math
and science while working as part of a team. Wichita State is a proud partner university
for the PLTW High School Engineering Pathway.
Wichita State University currently has two PLTW courses on the High School Engineering
Pathway that are equivalent to our introductory college courses: Introduction to Engineering
Design (IED) and Digital Electronics (DE).
