College Now Summer Program: ENGR1000

The ENGR1000: Introduction to Engineering Computer Technologies course introduces high school students to basic concepts and career options in Mechanical Engineering and Industrial Design Technology; Computer Systems Technology; Electrical Engineering Technology; and Electromechanical and Computer Engineering Technology. Over the course of five weeks, students participate in a rigorous program that includes class lectures, college-readiness workshops and weekly exposure trips relating to the class topics. Hands-on skills in these areas are developed and students use these skills to create an innovative product design that is unveiled in a marketing-style presentation at the end of the summer. The program covers the cost of tuition, books, supplies, metro cards and lunch.
