students who study engineering under Project Lead The Way can now earn college credit from universities across the country.
engineering chapter of Project Lead The Way—an organization that prepares students for careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics—has received full certification, meaning students who complete the program can earn college credit from affiliate Universities.
In Missouri, the Missouri University of Science and Technology gives students college credit for participating in Project Lead The Way, and the University of Missouri offers scholarships. Other schools across the country, such as the Rochester Institute of Technology, also offer special opportunities to these students.
