ALLIANCE, Ohio – Interested high school students are invited to attend the University of Mount Union’s School of Engineering this summer for the Experience Engineering Summer Program (EESP), where they can earn two college credits.
The program, which is in its third successful year on campus, is designed for high school sophomores, juniors, seniors, and recent graduates who have successfully completed Algebra I. This one-week program features hands-on learning through projects and experiences in five different engineering disciplines.
Students will have the opportunity to utilize Mount Union’s state-of-the-art facilities while experiencing engineering through faculty-led projects and mentoring from current engineering majors. Students are also given an opportunity to earn two college credits for the EGE 110: Intro to the Engineering Profession course with a small optional tuition fee.
With the help of The Mary Reinkart Wendling Foundation, students from underrepresented populations interested in experiencing what engineers do can apply and earn a scholarship that helps in offsetting the cost. EESP will begin on Sunday, July 5 and conclude at noon on Saturday, July 11.
