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).
