Mount Union Engineering Camp Offers College Credit to High School Students
August 10, 2017
ALLIANCE, Ohio – The University of Mount Union is excited to offer a unique camp for high school students interested in the field of engineering beginning in summer of 2018.
The Experience Engineering Summer Program (EESP) offers attendees the chance to get hands-on experience in biomedical, civil, computer, electrical, environmental and mechanical engineering. The faculty will also teach students effective communication and presentation skills as well as general entrepreneurship principles in engineering.
Students that complete the camp’s curriculum also earn two college credits, replacing those earned through Mount Union’s EGE110: Intro to the Engineering Profession course.
EESP accepts high school sophomores, juniors, seniors and recent graduates preparing to enroll as college freshmen. Students in those groups that have successfully completed Algebra I are eligible to attend the camp.
The first EESP will be held June 17 – 23 on Mount Union’s campus, offering state-of-the-art facilities and mentorship from faculty and students with industry and classroom-related experience.
“This summer program is an exciting opportunity for students wanting to learn about the many disciplines of engineering in a fun and hands-on way from engineering faculty at Mount Union,” said Dr. Osama Jaddan, Chair of the Department of Engineering at Mount Union. “The unique thing about this summer program is that it also integrates business and effective communication within the six engineering modules the students will work on. The students will also have the opportunity to meet with coaches and faculty members in extracurricular area of interest.”
Students attending EESP have the option to stay on campus throughout the program, or commute each day to campus. The cost for residential students is $795, which includes program fee, housing and meals, and commuter student pricing is $570. Both options include all instructional materials, social and team-building activities and an EESP T-shirt. Those wishing to earn college credit will have an optional tuition charge of $100.
Registration has begun and forms can be found at mountunion.edu/eesp-registration. Students will be admitted on a first-come, first-served basis and EESP is limited to 25 students.
