Summer Engineering Advancement Program

Students visit NASA as part of SEA

Summer Engineering Advancement Program

The 2023 program dates will be from June 2 to June 23. The priority deadline for applications is Friday, April 17, 2023. Apply to attend.

We begin selection on April 21 and will continue to notify students until all slots are full.

Hosted and developed by the college, the focus of the Summer Engineering Advancement Program (SEA) is to provide students of historically underrepresented populations who are pre-calculus-ready and majoring in engineering an opportunity to advance to calculus beginning in the fall. SEA offers students an overview of courses required as part of their first-year engineering curriculum with a particular emphasis on mathematics. Participating students will receive preliminary exposure to the academic environment of higher education to develop academic success skills.

SEA participants will have the opportunity to prepare for the collegiate environment as they develop academic, study, and personal skills while also engaging in career exploration. The curriculum for this non-residential summer experience includes:

  • Introduction to pre-calculus
  • Introduction to engineering fundamentals
  • 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.

SEA Counselors

The college is seeking current UT students to serve as counselors for the 2023 Summer Engineering Advancement program. Counselors should be rising sophomore, juniors, and seniors who wish to work with future Engineering Vols.
