ADVANCED ENGINEERING SUMMER ACADEMY AT UGA

In collaboration with the Georgia Center for Continuing Education, the University of Georgia offers annual interactive summer camps for high school students interested in engineering and STEM fields. Students in the Advanced Engineering camps will get to experience a week in the life of an engineer – thinking, planning, designing, fabricating, and proving designs using an expansive engineering toolkit of software, tools, and equipment. The project-based program lets students Experience Engineering in a fun, informative, and creative environment with just a hint of friendly competition. You will select one project for the week with emphasis on electrical, mechanical, civil, computer systems, biological/agricultural, biomedical, chemical, or environmental engineering. Activities will include learning from engineering experts and working in teams to complete projects. Upon departing for the week, we hope that students leave excited about engineering, minds racing with ideas to change the world, and with a greater understanding of what engineers do to make ideas come to life.

Ages: 15-17

2019 Advanced Engineering Summer Academy Dates:

June 3 -7
June 10 - 14
