Project Lead The Way
College of Technology leaders administer Indiana’s Project Lead The Way program in conjunction with the Indiana Department of Education.
Project Lead the Way is a pre-engineering/engineering technology program for high school students. It offers a four-year sequence of technology education courses that, when combined with college preparatory mathematics and science courses in high school, introduce students to the discipline of engineering and engineering technology prior to entering college.
Project Lead The Way also provides a hands-on, middle-level technology education program. This exploratory curriculum focuses on design, electronics, automation, and engineering mechanics.
Project Lead The Way is offered in more than 3,000 schools in 50 states and the District of Columbia. With 300 Indiana schools participating, Indiana boasts the highest number of schools enrolled. The Department of Industrial Technology at Purdue accepts Project Lead The Way class credits.
