The School of Engineering invites area high school freshmen, sophomores and juniors to participate in the Summer Residential Program. The program will introduce various engineering disciplines, computer science and construction management to bright young students through a set of activities that are fun, challenging and thought-provoking. Students will have the opportunity to learn about the impact of engineering on our daily lives through participation in hands-on laboratory experiments, design contests, and field trips. Students will also experience their first taste of residential college life while staying in a campus residence hall and using a meal program. Two sessions are offered to accommodate difficult summer scheduling.
