For rising juniors and seniors in high school hoping to earn college credit over the summer, this course introduces students to various disciplines within engineering and applied sciences: biomedical engineering, electrical and computer engineering, civil and environmental engineering, computer science, mechanical and aerospace engineering and systems engineering.

The course will consist of two to three modules focused on specific disciplines. Students will be exposed to engineering problem-solving methodology enabled by data measurements, data collection, computational modeling, and analysis.

College Intensive programs offer rising juniors and seniors the opportunity to earn college credit by engaging in challenging undergraduate level courses. Grades earned establish an official academic record at GW and may be transferable, depending on the policies of the receiving institution.

Students select one curricular option in this three-week, full-day immersion program offered for high school students. Courses are taught in an intensive and highly experiential format, allowing students to focus on an in-depth examination of a topic and its applications. Students will have assignments beyond class meeting times. Students also participate in an additional 10 - 20 hours/week of co-curricular, college preparatory and cultural enrichment programs.

High school students in the Pre-College Program spend a summer in Washington, D.C., taking advantage of GW's expertise in global development, international relations, public policy and administration, politics, diplomacy, history, biomedical engineering, museum studies and the arts.

Top-tier faculty guide, inspire and empower students through immersive programs that connect academic experience with real-world practice.

Our summer programs are intensive and exciting, allowing students to experience the academic rigors of learning in a college environment. They are academically-challenging courses that integrate lectures and seminars with exploration of area organizations.

Pre-College also offers a transformative introduction to college life. Students develop confidence in their ability to become part of a new community, participating in recreational and social activities while making friends with peers from around the world.
