UW Engineering Summer Program Seeks Applicants
January 12, 2011 — Applications are now being accepted for the University of Wyoming's Engineering Summer Program (ESP), which runs from June 12-18, at UW. Applications are due by March 31.
Sponsored by the UW College of Engineering and Applied Science, the week-long summer residency program is for students entering their senior year of high school this fall. It provides students with an opportunity to explore various areas of engineering.
"Students attending ESP will participate in hands-on laboratory activities in a variety of engineering disciplines and work directly with civil, chemical, computer science, electrical and mechanical engineering faculty members," says the program's director, Jeff Anderson, a faculty member in the UW Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering.
"Students will also have the opportunity to go on a field trip where various aspects of engineering are explored," he says. "Classes will give students educational laboratory experience in composite materials, robotics, computer science, computer electronics, engineering structures and chemical/rockets."
The program is funded by the Wyoming Engineering Society, UW College of Engineering and Applied Science, UW Academic Affairs, the J. Kenneth and Pat Kennedy Endowment, Hewlett Engineering School Initiative, and Paul N. Scherbel.
