UW Colleges Regional Continuing Education is offering local high school students an opportunity to see first-hand the many career options that a degree in Engineering has! This is the perfect venue for high school students that want to become an engineer, but are not sure what exact field they would like to pursue due to the many facets of engineering that are available. This is a challenging, fun, and hands-on introductory experience that exposes high school students to various engineering disciplines relevant to their interests. Students will learn about the exciting field 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 in the summer, we 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. During the week, we will explore civil, electrical, industrial/manufacturing, mechanical, material, and architectural engineering. Space is limited.
Student can enroll in this course with or without the college credit option.
With one UW credit: $499
Without UW credit: $299
