Engineering & Leadership Exploration for High School Students

Course Detail

Engineering & Leadership Exploration for High School Students image

High school students have an opportunity to see first-hand the numerous career opportunities that a degree in Engineering can offer! This is the perfect venue for high school students who want to become an engineer, but are not sure what exact field they would like to enter. This year, we have added a leadership building component to the camp! Students will learn about the fields of engineering from local engineers and engineering students, participate in engineering design projects, and visit local businesses to observe engineers at work. For one week, visit a different local company each day, tour their facility, and speak with their engineers to learn what their day entails and how they landed their job position. Explore civil, electrical, industrial/manufacturing, mechanical, material, and architectural engineering. Students may enroll for one EGR elective college credit or they may enroll for non-credit. 

Enrollment with one EGR elective credit $499

Without credit $299. 

Space is limited.
