PROJECT LEAD THE WAY – ENGINEERING


INDIAN HILLS COMMUNITY COLLEGE

The following Indian Hills Community College courses are offered for concurrent credit. Successful completion of these courses will result in OHS credit toward graduation AND college credit at IHCC. OHS discipline and attendance policies apply. 

EGT405 PLTW INTRODUCTION TO ENGINEERING DESIGN: 
Grade 9-12, Year=2 CR, Prerequisite= Algebra 1 (or taking concurrently)

Pre-engineering technology is designed to help student prepare for college engineering courses as well as help students entering into any field of technology. Students will learn how to use parametric engineering programs, how to solve technical problems in a wide range how fields, how to use the design process to evaluate, troubleshoot and solve various problems. Students will be required to keep an engineering notebook to learn how to sketch, document, and record any relevant data necessary for future reference; this process will mimic how engineers record and maintain data on the field.  College credit may be available #EGT405

EGT413 PLTW PRINCIPLES OF ENGINEERING: 
Grade 10-12, Year=2 CR, Prerequisite= Algebra 1 (or taking concurrently) & PLTW-IED

This course is designed to help students understand the field of engineering/engineering technology. Exploring various technology systems and manufacturing processes helps students learn how engineers and technicians use math, science and technology in an engineering problem solving process to benefit people. The course covers topics in Kinematics, Statics, Tensile Strength Testing, Theromodynamics, Simple Robotics, and Programming.

This course will prepare students with the basic skills necessary to be successful in college, as well as any profession requiring problem solving skills. College credit may be available. #EGR413

EGT425 PLTW DIGITAL ELECTRONICS: 
Grade 10-12, Year=2 CR, Prerequisite= Algebra 1 (or taking concurrently) & PLTW-IED

From smartphones to appliances, digital circuits are all around us. This course provides a foundation for students who are interested in electrical engineering, electronics, or circuit design. Students study topics such as combinational and sequential logic and are exposed to circuit design tools used in industry, including logic gates, integrated circuits, and programmable logic devices. College credit may be available. #EGR425
