Presentations and Demonstrations:

Campers get an overview of all subjects of Engineering through presentations and demonstrations by our very own faculty and current Engineering students. This allows campers to learn more about each field and decipher what they love about Engineering by covering a broad curriculum to explore your options.

In WYSE Discover Engineering/ Bioengineering camp (WYSE DE/ BioE) the curriculum is an in depth look of specifically Bioengineering.

In WYSE Exploring Your Options/ Mechanical Science and Engineering/ Nuclear, Plasma, Radiological Engineering (WYSE EYO/ MechSE/ NPRE) the curriculum is an in depth look of specifically Mechanical Science and Engineering and Nuclear, Plasma, Radiological Engineering.



Evening Activities:

Evenings will consist of both learning through dedicated time for projects and fun with on campus activities.
