Perspectives Students Attend Notre Dame Engineering Summer Camp

Thanks to the generous support of the Illinois Section of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ISASCE), several students from Perspectives Rodney D. Joslin Campus attended the 2015 summer edition of the University of Notre Dame's Introduction to Engineering Program (IEP).

Applications were accepted from minority students interested in participating in a two-week summer Introduction to Engineering Program at the University of Notre Dame.

The program is designed to provide high school students with a broad exposure to the profession of engineering and to motivate those who possess an interest in pursuing a career in this challenging field.

According to the IEP website:

The College of Engineering at the University of Notre Dame would like to introduce you to the world of opportunities available in engineering. Give us just two weeks of the summer between your junior and senior years in high school, and we'll give you an introduction to engineering that includes:
    • A taste of college life
    • A chance to visit our campus and meet the faculty of the College of Engineering
    • An update on career opportunities in engineering
    • A look at the many facets of engineering
    • An overview of the elements of engineering design and computer programming
    • A tour of our state-of-the-art computer facilities
    • A chance to meet professional engineers
