This Project Lead the Way (PLTW) course trains students on an engineering problem-solving model that provides solutions to practical problems in our high-tech world. Methods include using sophisticated three-dimensional modeling software, mathematical analysis, and reverse engineering in order to advance product innovation and create new inventions. Emphasis is placed on analyzing potential solutions and communicating ideas to others. Students learn the steps in the design process and elements of design. Additional topics include sketching and visualization, geometric relationships, statistical analysis, accuracy & precision in measuring, mathematical modeling, 3D modeling, material property analysis, presentation and prototype production. Students draft initial designs, create and assemble 3D models using the latest software, produce technical drawings and deliver product presentations. This course meets the "G" requirement for UC A-G.



5642 PRINCIPLES OF ENGINEERING-R
11th - 12th
10.0 credits
Career GuidanceCounselor's recommendation.
UC - "G" Approved

This Project Lead the Way (PLTW) course trains students in major engineering concepts encountered in real-world technology systems such as bridge design, materials testing and selection, robotics, programming and manufacturing processes . In addition, students will have the opportunity to explore career paths and conduct research on job descriptions, education and demand in the different fields of engineering. Students learn firsthand how engineers and technologists use math, science, and technology in an engineering problem-solving process to benefit people using activities, projects, and problems in mechanisms, electronics and electrical systems, statics, thermodynamics, truss analysis, energy sources including alternative sources, machine controls, and fluid power. The course also addresses concerns about social and political consequences of technological change. This course meets the "G" requirement for UC A-G.



5672 COMP INTEGRATED MANUFACTUR -R
11th - 12th
10.0 credits
Prerequisite: Successful completion of the Principles of Engineering (PLTW) course.
UC - "G" Approved

Manufactured items are part of everyday life, yet most students have not been introduced to the high-tech, innovative nature of modern manufacturing. This course illuminates the career opportunities related to understanding manufacturing. At the same time, it teaches students about manufacturing processes, product design, robotics, and automation. Students can earn a virtual manufacturing badge recognized by the National Manufacturing Badge system. This is a Project Lead the Way (PLTW)capstone course.



5678 CIVIL ENGINEERING/ARCHITECT -R
11th - 12th
10.0 credits
Successful completion of Intro to Engineering Design and Principles of Engineering.
UC - "G" Approved

This ROP Civil Engineering and Architecture course provides an overview of the fields of Civil Engineering and Architecture, while emphasizing the interrelationship and dependence of both fields on each other. Students use state of the art software to solve real world problems and communicate solutions to hands-on projects and activities. This course covers topics such as project planning, site planning, building design, and project documentation and presentation. Refer to O*NET Online (https://www.onetonline.org/) for a summary report of the detailed job description for this career. This course integrates the California Career Technical Education Model Curriculum Standards, which are aligned to the Common Core State Standards. Instruction reinforces core skills in reading, writing, speaking, listening, and mathematics. Course instruction emphasizes career ready behaviors in communication, ethics, interpersonal/team skills, critical thinking and problem solving, safety, technology, and employability skills.



5679 ENGINEER DESIGN/DEVELOPMENT P
11th - 12th
10.0 credits
Successful completion of Introduction to Engineering Design and Principles of Engineering.
UC - "G" Approved

This (ROP)Engineering Design and Development course is the capstone course in the Project Lead the Way high school engineering program. It is an open-ended engineering research course in which students work in teams to design and develop an original solution to a well-defined and justified open-ended problem by applying an engineering design process. Students will perform research to select, define, and justify a problem. After carefully defining the design requirements and creating multiple solution approaches, teams of students select an approach, create, and test their solution prototype. Student teams will present and defend their original solution to an outside panel. While progressing through the engineering design process, students will work closely with experts and will continually hone their organizational, communication, and interpersonal skills, their creative and problem-solving abilities, and their understanding of the design process. Refer to O*NET Online (https://www.onetonline.org/) for a summary report of the detailed job description for this career. This course integrates the California Career Technical Education Model Curriculum Standards, which are aligned to the Common Core State Standards. Instruction reinforces core skills in reading, writing, speaking, listening, and mathematics. Course instruction emphasizes career ready behaviors in communication, ethics, interpersonal/team skills, critical thinking and problem solving, safety, technology, and employability skills.



5690 INTRO TO ENGINEERING PLTW
9th - 12th
10.0 credits
None
UC - "G" Approved

This course uses the curriculum developed by Project Lead The Way (PLTW) – Introduction to Engineering Design. Students are introduced to the engineering profession and a common approach to the solution of engineering problems, an engineering design process. Utilizing the activity-project-problem-based (APB) teaching and learning pedagogy, students will progress from completing structured activities to solving open-ended projects and problems that require them to develop planning, documentation, communication, and other professional skills. Through both individual and collaborative team activities, projects, and problems, students will solve problems as they practice common engineering design and development protocols such as project management and peer review. Students will develop skill in technical representation and documentation of design solutions according to accepted technical standards, and they will use current 3D design and modeling software to represent and communicate solutions. In addition the development of computational methods that are commonly used in engineering problem solving, including statistical analysis and mathematical modeling, are emphasized. Ethical issues related to professional practice and product development are also presented. This course will prepare students to continue their exploration of engineering in future courses which will provide further depth to engineering concepts and/or focus on specific disciplines of engineering: electrical, mechanical, civil and chemical as well as interdisciplinary areas.
