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 Launch, Gateway, High School Engineering, High School Computer Science and High School Biomedical Sciences Pathways.
Wichita State University has determined that three PLTW courses on the High School Engineering Pathway are equivalent to introductory college courses: Introduction to Engineering Design (IED), Digital Electronics (DE), and Engineering Design & Development (EDD).
