The Pre-Engineering Program is a four-year sequence of courses which, when combined with traditional mathematics and science courses, introduces students to the scope, rigor, and discipline of engineering prior to entering college. The curriculum is designed to prepare secondary school students for admission, in some instances with advanced standing, to high-quality engineering schools and, once there, to succeed. Pre-Engineering students take four years of math culminating
in calculus, as well as four years of science and three of a foreign language. Pre-Engineering classes begin in grade
nine and are co-taught by a Pre-Engineering instructor and
a physics teacher. School-to-Careers and Tech Prep activities, such as visits to colleges and exchanges with local engineering firms, are integral to the program. Graduates possess the necessary science and math skills, as well as practical experiences, for entry into most college engineering
programs. The technology-infused curriculum is driven by a series of technical practica designed to mesh the hands-on application of engineering theory with rigorous core academics. Pre-Engineering students find themselves functioning in research, design, and development teams built around various real-world engineering problems that form the basis of a variety of engineering projects. In addition to challenging core academics, the engineering sequence includes Principles of Engineering, Engineering Design & Development, Digital Electronics, CAD, and Computer Integrated Manufacturing Systems (CIMS).
