Computer Integrated Manufacturing (Project Lead the Way)

Computer Integrated Manufacturing illuminates the opportunities related to understanding manufacturing. The Project Lead the Way curriculum is applied to explore opportunities and information related to the field. Manufactured items are part of everyday life, yet most students have not been introduced to the high-tech, innovative nature of modern manufacturing. The course sequence teaches students about manufacturing processes, product design, robotics, and automation.

Course Sequence:

Level I- Introduction to Engineering Design (1.0)

  • Students will use computer-aided design software, perform research and analysis, as they work in teams on problems with global and human impact.
  • Students will learn problem-solving skills using a design development process.


Level II- Honors Principles of Engineering (1.0)

  • Students will utilize computer-aided design software, perform research and analysis.
  • Students will learn problem-solving skills using a design development process.

Level III- Honors Computer Integrated Manufacturing (1.0)

  • This course focuses on the long-term development of property sites.

Level IV- Honors Engineering Design and Development (1.0)

  • The knowledge and skills students acquire throughout PLTW Engineering come together in Engineering Design and Development as they identify an issue and then research, design, and test a solution, ultimately presenting their solution to a panel of engineers.
