Cleveland, OH is the leading online training provider focused on the unique needs of manufacturers. Our roots are in manufacturing, and our business started by recognizing the industry's specific needs. While some may report that "manufacturing is dead," or that "all the jobs are overseas," we recognize instead that manufacturing faces a challenge. Today's manufacturers are ready to compete, but to do so successfully, they need the right people, and they need the right knowledge.

It's not all equations and seriousness in the PLTW classes at North and West. In North's Principles of Engineering class, students recently made root beer to determine heat loss calculations. In the Introduction to Engineering Design class, students created puzzle cubes and challenged one another in a heated "Puzzle Off." While the curriculum is challenging, it's valuable for any student interested in pursuing a high-tech career.
It teaches 21st century skills. It incorporates very well how math and science and technology are integrated together, as one. It takes theory and it applies hands-on applications to every aspect that we study. While technology departments primarily focused on vocational skills in the past, the inclusion of engineering classes has helped the department to evolve.
