Manufacturing Engineering and Technology

Programs in the Manufacturing, Engineering, and Technology Cluster prepare students for a variety of career areas, including opportunities to become engineers, engineering technologists or technicians. Students engage in real-world projects that strengthen their understanding of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). By completing challenging projects related to design, manufacturing process applications and quality improvements, students are being educated for the high-performance workplace using advanced technologies. To remain internationally competitive, employers need employees who can develop and use technologies that will continuously improve the quality of life for Marylanders. Pathway: Pre-Engineering: Project Lead The Way (PLTW)

Offered at Easton High School and the first two courses are offered at St. Michaels Middle/High School


The PLTW Pathway to Engineering (PTE) program is a sequence of courses, which follows a proven, hands-on, real-world, problem-solving approach to learning. Throughout PTE, students learn and apply the design process, acquire strong teamwork and communication proficiency, and develop organizational, critical-thinking, and problem-solving skills. PTE courses complement traditional mathematics and science courses and can serve as the foundation for STEM-centered or specialized academies. The program is designed to prepare students to pursue a post-secondary education and careers in the engineering field. 

Successful students may obtain college credits through University of Maryland-Baltimore County, Rochester Institute of Technology, and all other Project Lead The Way (PLTW) Affiliate colleges and universities.
