Project Lead The Way®

Project Lead The Way is an initiative which allows high school students to explore careers in engineering or engineering technology by completing a designated sequence of courses as part of their high school curriculum. Courses include Introduction to Engineering Design, Digital Electronics, Principles of Engineering and Computer Integrated Manufacturing. Students who have successfully completed any of these courses may be eligible to apply some of the credits to meet requirements in NHTI’s Mechanical/Manufacturing Engineering Technology major.  For high schools interested in becoming a Project Lead the Way partner contact Engineering Technology Department Head Joe Cunningham at (603) 271-6484 x 4416 or

Running Start

Running Start offers high school students the opportunity to take challenging college courses while at high school at a reduced tuition rate. Students who successfully complete college courses through Running Start receive an official transcript from the community college with which their high school is associated. Some examples of courses offered include Psychology, Accounting, Human Biology, Networking, Programming with C++, Physics, Sports Marketing, Introduction to Criminal Justice and Calculus. (Introductory engineering courses are also available through Project Lead the Way.)

Running Start courses will be evaluated for transfer credit using the same guidelines as listed under Transferring to NHTI. Students applying to NHTI who have taken Running Start courses should have an official transcript sent to the NHTI Admissions Office from the Community College associated with the Running Start course(s) taken. They should also respond to the Running Start questions on the NHTI application for admission.

PLEASE NOTE: The NHTI application fee will be waived for Running Start students who submit a copy of their participation letter.
