View Events/Assignments for 

Introduction to Engineering Design (IED) is a high school level course that is appropriate for 9th grade students who are interested in design and engineering. The major focus of the IED course is to expose students to: the engineering design process, research and analysis, teamwork, communication methods, engineering standards, and technical documentation.

The course assumes no previous knowledge, but students should be concurrently enrolled in college preparatory mathematics and science. Students will employ engineering and scientific concepts in the solution of engineering design problems. In addition, students will use 3D solid modeling software to help them design solutions to solve proposed problems.  Students will develop problem-solving skills and apply their knowledge of research and design to create solutions to various challenges that increase in difficulty throughout the course. Students will also learn how to document their work as well as communicate solutions to their peers and members of the professional community.

Introduction to Engineering Design is one of the foundation courses in the Project Lead The Way (PLTW) high school pre-engineering program. The course applies and concurrently develops secondary level knowledge and skills in mathematics, science, and technology.
