Catapult into Engineering Summer Academy
Incoming ECE freshmen get to experience Engineering Summer Academy, earn class credit for Introduction to Engineering and build a solid community before fall classes even begin. You will decode encrypted messages, program robotic vehicles and, yes, catapult scientifically entertaining objects through the air. $585 covers course credit, materials and fees, plus room & board with early access to your dorm room.
When you experience something great, you want to pass it on. The ECE community of alumni established the Joe Watson Fund to pass on scholarships and program enhancements for future students. Scholarships are awarded to incoming freshmen who choose to declare ECE as their major.
