Engineering Summer Camp for high school students

College of Engineering’s Center for Excellence in Engineering Education

Engineering Summer Camp for High School Students (sorry the camps are closed)

Summer 2018

Overnight Camp: June 17th to June 22nd

Day Camp: June 18th to June 22nd

This exciting and interactive camp is designed for high school students and will allow for engineering design and problem solving approaches using out of the box thinking. The camp will have interactive workshops, hands-on challenges, tours, panels, and friendly competitions.

Each day the camp covers a major branch of engineering, i.e. electrical/computer engineering, civil engineering, mechanical engineering, chemical engineering and biomedical engineering. The main goal of the Engineering Summer Camp is to develop, grow, and maintain the engineering bridge program targeting Texas high school students entering biomedical, chemical, civil, computer, electrical, and mechanical engineering.

Day Camp is $280 and Overnight Camp is $525. A $100 deposit is required to fully register. Any money owed must be paid before the camp starts.

 To register, please send your application and deposit by check payable to UTSA to: Mehdi Shadaram, Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Texas at San Antonio, One UTSA Circle, San Antonio, TX 78249 before May 10, 2018.

Recently, we received limited scholarship funds to subsidize the registration fee for students from low income families. To qualify, please get a letter from your school, indicating that your child is on free lunch and submit it along with your application and deposit. The scholarship will be awarded based on first come first served. The scholarship does not cover the $100 deposit.
