The mathematics courses serve as an opportunity for students to strengthen their skills where necessary before being submerged into the University curriculum during their Fall semester. If students perform well in the summer math classes, they will have the opportunity to advance in sequence to the next level mathematics course when they begin the Fall semester.
The Chemistry workshop helps to prepare students for the very rigorous "Chemistry for Engineers" course that students will take their freshman year. Additionally, the Student Success Workshop Series will expose students to numerous campus resources and help students build the study skills needed to ensure their success at the Clark School of Engineering. Workshops topics include time-management, study and test-taking strategies, dealing with stress, career development, diversity, health and fitness awareness, etc. The series will also include academic success workshops that will be facilitated by staff at the University of Maryland.
Professional and career development are also hallmarks of the Summer Bridge Program. In the past, Summer Bridge students visited the following facilities during the Bridge Program:
W. L. Gore and Associates
The Boeing Company
Booz, Allen, Hamilton
National Institute of Standards and Technology
NASA Goddard Space Flight Center
University of Maryland Glenn L. Martin Wind Tunnel
