Project Lead the Way

Students will experience hands-on projects in a challenging, high-tech environment, learning from instructors skilled in the field. Prepare for a 21st century career in engineering or engineering technology while earning math, science, and English credits.

Two Project Lead the Way classes are offered at Central Campus:

Digital Electronics – Offered within the Engineering Robotics and Electronics course. Digital electronics is the foundation of all modern electronic devices such as cellular phones, MP3 players, laptop computers, digital cameras and high-definition televisions. The major focus of the course is to expose students to the process of combinational and sequential logic design, teamwork, communication methods, engineering standards and technical documentation. Students will apply knowledge learned in Digital Electronics to project-driven course work, including the operation and programming of robots and robotic systems.

May earn DMACC credit as follows:
EGT 420 PLTW Digital Electronics 3 credits (S)

Civil and Architectural Engineering – Students apply what they learn about various aspects of civil engineering and archtecture to the design and development of a property. Working in teams, students explore hands-on activities and projects to learn the characteristics of civil engineering and architecture. In addition, students use 3D design software to help them design solutions to solve major course projects. Students learn about documenting their project, solving problems and communicating their solutions to their peers and members of the professional community of civil engineering and architecture.
