PLTW2003 Civil Engineering & Architecture (CEA)

Grade 10-12. Year-long. Prerequisite is IED, POE, or Drafting and Design. Weighted grade.

The major focus of this course is completing long-term civil engineering and architecture projects that involve the development of property sites that involve applying what they learn to the design and development of a property. The course provides teachers and students freedom to develop the property to simulate the experiences of civil engineers and architects. Students work in teams, exploring hands-on activities and projects to learn the characteristics of civil engineering and architecture. In addition, students use 3D design software to design solutions to major course projects. Students learn to document their project, solving problems and communicating their solutions to their peers and members of the professional community of civil engineering and architecture. A lab fee will be charged.
