To take basically any of the technology related classes in high school do you have to take DDE first?

A. College Drawing and Design for Engineering  (DDE) is the initial course in the college level Project Lead the Way progression and is therefore a prerequisite for  College Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CIM), College Principles of Engineering (POE), and Honors Automation and Robotics.

Drawing and Design for Production (DDP) is an alternate prerequisite to DDE for Engineering Design Architectural Design and Aerospace Engineering.

Introduction to Technology is the prerequisite for Manufacturing Systems, Transportation Systems (these two courses can be taken concurrently with Intro to Tech), Construction Technology Systems, and Automotive Technology Systems.

Digital Electronics and Java have no technology prerequisite.  These courses do require that students successfully complete algebra as a prerequisite.

More information regarding the Technology course progressions and course descriptions can be found  on the K-12 Program of Studies webpage.
