Summer College Engineering Exposure Program (SCEEP)

Description

Current 11th graders

The SCEEP is an 11-day program that familiarizes students with the engineering disciplines offered at U-M and acquaints them with the university campus, support services, and other resources.  Students live in a dorm while attending the program.

Classes are designed to help students develop an understanding of engineering, its disciplines, as well as the role interdisciplinary learning plays in growing strong engineers.   As a team, students work on an engineering design challenge and develop a professional portfolio.  Their experience is enhanced by tours of engineering departments and facilities, along with presentations given by university staff on the admissions and financial aid process.  Informal discussions with College of Engineering alumni, faculty, staff, and students enhance students’ experiences.  Some of the participants are given the opportunity to take part in an SAT Prep course to ensure their application to the College of Engineering is as strong as possible.

The program is conducted in two sessions in July.   Applicants can choose to participate in Session 1 or 2 or indicate “no preference.” Thirty students are accepted for each session and participants attend four core classes – Technical Communications, Engineering Concepts, Engineering Math, and Professional Development – throughout the eleven days of the program.
