Tentative dates for the PREP Program are Monday, June 30, 2014 – Friday, August 8, 2014. The hours of operation are from 8:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. The PREP Program is designed to make students aware, at an early age, of the professional opportunities in engineering and to convince students to take more mathematics and science as a part of their high school course load. The six week summer program will consist of educational, motivational, and recreational activities designed specifically to stimulate interest in math/science that will insure success in an engineering curriculum. The goal of the PREP Program is to increase awareness of career opportunities in engineering in order to facilitate the selection of an engineering major in college. The PREP Program is beneficial to students because it provides critical insight into the engineering profession, the demand of an engineer curriculum and what is expected of them academically and socially in college.
Students entering grades 6,7,8, 9, 10, 11, or 12 in September 2014 are eligible to apply.
