Exploring Your Options (EYO) is a week-long, residential program that introduces rising juniors and seniors to the varied disciplines of engineering.  EYO takes place at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, providing campers with the opportunity to interact with engineering students and faculty during the lessons and hands-on activities developed by the departments in The Grainger College of Engineering.

“The best thing about WYSE camp is the people that I was able to meet here and get close with. It also gave me plenty of opportunity to really dive deep into all the different disciplines in the engineering field.” ~2019 EYO camper
