E2 participants are typically students who are interested in pursuing an education/career in engineering. Some of them know exactly what discipline they would like to pursue, and want to learn more about that area. Others have a general idea, and a number of students are unsure of which discipline is right for them. Our program provides them with the opportunity to explore the field of engineering and learn what each discipline entails in order for them to make an informed decision regarding their future.
In 2020, virtual camp enrollment is restricted to 200 students.
We are planning 102 hours of online programming to take place over the course of two weeks (July 20 – 31, 2020).
Deadline to Apply: Monday, June 30, 2020
*Depending on availability we may accept students after the deadline on a rolling basis*
There will be five modules that focus on interdisciplinary engineering fields for participants to explore throughout the camp. Each module spans two days.
During these modules, participants will engage with other participants, and our staff in the following ways:
In total, we are offering 17 hours of direct instruction

This two-week online engineering program will provide an opportunity to learn what engineers do in twelve different fields. Additionally, students will dive in to one major over the entire course of the camp during the Young Engineering Science Scholars Program (YESS) activities. In the application process, each student will rank their preferred major choice.
