Environmental Engineering at Unity Reed High School


We are proud to announce the formation of a new specialty program at URHS - Environmental Engineering.This program builds on the success of our Project Lead the Way Engineering courses and our IB Environmental Systems class by bringing students together in a focused study on how engineers can devise solutions that protect human health and natural ecosystems, while also improving quality of life. 

Proposed Course of Study

In Environmental Engineering there is a pathway that combines with our International Baccalaureate Programme, but also a pathway for students who are not in IB courses in grades 9-11. In both cases, students will take the following Project Lead the Way Courses: Introduction to Engineering Design in grade 9, Civil Engineering and Architecture in grade 10, Environmental Sustainability in grade 11, and Engineering Design and Development (or an additional PLTW elective) in grade 12. Both pathways also designate a sequence of science courses that culminate in IB Environmental Systems and Societies in grade 12.
