NSHS Engineering

Courses in Engineering focus on the skills of engineering design, communications, manufacturing, and engineering applications. Depending on the path chosen, required courses may include traditional industrial technology courses and new courses that follow the Project Lead The Way Inc. Curriculum. Project Lead The Way Inc. (PLTW) is a national high school program for Pre-Engineering. For further questions see the head of the engineering program Donovan Kim in room 122 or contact him by email at KIM_DONOVAN@salkeiz.k12.or.us 

Introduction to Engineering Design  Fine/App Arts Credit=1.0 OUS: No NCAA: No Fine & Applied Arts : Yes Grade Level: 9-12  Introduction to Engineering Design– A course that teachers problem-solving skills using a design development process. Models of product solutions are created, analyzed and communicated using solid modeling computer design software.
