Summer Engineering Advancement Program

The Tickle College of Engineering has created and will host the Summer Engineering Advancement (SEA) program.

The focus of SEA is to provide historically underrepresented populations, women in engineering, and first generation pre-calculus ready students majoring in engineering an opportunity to advance to calculus beginning in the fall. SEA offers students an overview of courses required in their first-year engineering curriculum with a particular emphasis on mathematics. This preliminary exposure to the academic environment of higher education develops academic success skills in the students.

SEA will provide participants with opportunities to prepare for the collegiate environment as they develop academic, study, and personal skills while also engaging in career exploration. This residential summer experience will offer introductory courses in pre-calculus, introduction to engineering fundamentals, as well as college life workshops/presentations. Students who are accepted to SEA will attend free of charge. Tickle College of Engineering students should complete the online application. Check back later for the application.
