Mid-Del Technology Center’s Pre-Engineering Academy is an academically challenging college preparatory program for high school juniors and seniors. The Project Lead the Way curriculum is nationally recognized and introduces students to the concepts and principles of engineering, with a heavy emphasis on problem-solving skills. Students will learn how engineers use math, science, and technology to solve problems that will prepare them for a university engineering program. Students in the program can earn a math or science core credit along with two elective credits in engineering for each year successfully completed. Students may also choose to earn six college credits through a partnership with Wichita State University.
Students enrolling into the Pre-Engineering program must have successfully completed Geometry. Students must also have completed or be enrolled in Algebra II at the high school in the first year of the program. Students with a 3.0 combined weighted average in high school math and science courses will be eligible for program consideration
Students with a 2.5 – 3.0 combined weighted average in high school math and science courses may apply for special consideration and the application will be reviewed by an admission committee. Students with less than a 2.5 combined weighted average in high school math and science courses will be ineligible to enter the Pre-Engineering program, but are welcome to apply to other MDTC programs.
