Engineering Summer Program (ESP)|College of Engineering and Applied Science

Engineering Summer Program


The College of Engineering and Applied Science along with the Wyoming Engineering Society, J. Kenneth & Pat Kennedy Endowment, Mr. Paul N.Scherbel, Halliburton and UW Academic Affairs offers high school juniors an opportunity to participate in a summer program of hands-on experiences in various engineering fields. You might have a chance to build a digital circuit, study solutions to an environmental issue, program a robotic device, or design timber trusses. Laboratory sessions provide basic instruction: you put your knowledge to the test.

As an ESP participant, you'll work one-on-one with faculty members and advanced students. Your curiosity and enthusiasm - not tests and grades - will inspire discovery. This one week program will expand your horizons, develop your creative thinking and problem solving skills, and challenge your imagination.

ESP is held on the University of Wyoming campus, with some of the best laboratories and equipment in the Rocky Mountain region. Approximately thirty students will be selected to participate in the program.

Students who are interested in any career area are encouraged to apply. The field of engineering can often be excellent preparation for advanced degrees and careers in medicine, law, business, as well as the various fields in engineering. Engineering is built on the principle of solving problems in the world around us and improving the quality of life for the human race. ESP is committed to exploring the field of engineering, the development of leadership skills, and improving human service characteristics in each participant.

Those who are accepted into the program will be required to pay the total cost of $200 for an activity fee. All other program costs are provided by the College of Engineering and Applied Science and the Wyoming Engineering Society.
