Project Lead the Way

Pathway To Engineering™

The High School Program is a four year sequence of courses which, when combined with traditional mathematics and science courses in high school, introduces students to the scope, rigor and discipline of engineering prior to entering college. However, those not intending to pursue further formal education will benefit greatly from the knowledge and logical thought processes that result from taking some or all of the courses provided in the curriculum.

College Credit for Students

The National Affiliate/PLTW Exemplary Student Recognition program will provide an opportunity for students in a National Affiliate/PLTW certified school who have excelled in selected PLTW courses to receive transcripted, college credit for Principles of Engineering, Introduction to Engineering Design, Digital Electronics.

Courses offered at Carmel High School

Introduction to Engineering Design

A course that teaches problem-solving skills using a design development process. Models of product solutions are created, analyzed and communicated using solid modeling computer design software.

Principles of Engineering

A course that helps students understand the field of engineering/engineering technology. Exploring various technology systems and manufacturing processes help students learn how engineers and technicians use math, science and technology in an engineering problem solving process to benefit people. The course also includes concerns about social and political consequences of technological change.

Digital Electronics

A course in applied logic that encompasses the application of electronic circuits and devices. Computer simulation software is used to design and test digital circuitry prior to the actual construction of circuits and devices.
