High school students have an opportunity to see first-hand the numerous career opportunities that a degree in Engineering can offer!

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.

Nail that exam!
UW-Sheboygan, UW-Waukesha, and UW-Washington are offering a self-paced ACT® online prep course to prepare students for, and address the changes to the new ACT®. We know that every student’s schedule is not the same. The online option offers 24/7 access and flexibility that students need in order to prepare for the exam. This course also comes with five months of access in order to correlate with ACT® testing dates! Your course begins with an online practice ACT® test so that you will be able to identify the areas you should focus on, work on modules, and receive immediate feedback from lessons and quizzes for each of the five test sections. When you have completed the lessons, you’ll take a follow-up online posttest that will assess how much you’ve improved. Students will receive a comprehensive review of all sections of the test, and be more confident and better prepared for the exam.
