Engineering & Applied Mathematics

Pathway Information

  • Project Lead the Way curriculum, developed by professional field and research engineers, is the foundation of the Engineering & Applied Mathematics pathway. Students experience hands-on problem solving and gain visualization and communication skills using 3-D solid modeling software. As students progress to senior-level coursework, they are teamed with other students to research an open-ended problem and design, and construct a solution to it. Options for advanced study include civil engineering and architecture, biotechnical engineering and aerospace engineering.
