Update: February 24, 2021
The state of Maryland is currently operating under a state of emergency due to COVID-19; therefore, we have canceled the Discovering Engineering Summer Program for Summer 2021. We want to ensure that we do not host a program that could potentially subject our participants and campus community to increased risk of exposure. We look forward to resuming the program in-person in the future .
We are diligently working to develop a virtual program option that will meet the needs and interests of prospective students. Finalized information regarding this program will be listed under the Pre-College Summer Programs guide.
The Academic Program
During the week, you will have an opportunity to explore engineering at the Clark School by visiting all eight of our engineering departments! You will participate in a variety of activities including laboratory work and demonstrations, lectures, discussions, computer instruction and a team design project. You will visit each of the engineering departments to learn more about the specific departments and their special projects. Within the network of support provided by the instructors, program advisors, and peers, you will have the opportunity to build self-confidence in applying your math, science and engineering skills.
