Academy of Engineering

The Academy of Engineering answers an acute need for engineers in the US by educating high school students in the principles of engineering and providing exciting learning in the fields of electronics, biotechnology, aerospace, civil engineering, and architecture. The Academy of Engineering, offered at six DCPS high schools: Cardozo EC, Columbia Heights EC, Dunbar HS, McKinley Technology HS, Phelps ACE HS, and Woodson HS, uses Project Lead the Way curricula to provide opportunities to apply science, technology, engineering, and math through project-based, hands-on courses. Students in these programs have completed internships with Pepco, the Department of Homeland Security, and Department of Transportation.
