These are all hands-on, real-world challenges students face in their PLTW Engineering courses. Throughout the program, students step into the varied roles engineers play in our society, discover new career paths and possibilities, and develop engineering knowledge and skills. In addition, as students work in teams to design and test solutions, they’re empowered develop in-demand, transportable skills like collaboration, critical thinking, and communication.
