The Michigan Technological University Summer Youth Programs will introduce you to careers and allow you to develop new skills through laboratory, classroom, and field experiences. The program includes more than sixty one-week explorations, scheduled over multiple weeks in June, July, and August.
The Engineering Scholars Program (ESP) is a chance for academically talented students (grades 9 - 11) to explore nine fields of engineering through hands-on projects and classroom investigations. Explore real engineering labs, meet and interact with leaders and role models, and take exciting trips throughout the beautiful Keweenaw Peninsula—all while investigating career opportunities and meeting other talented students with similar interests. This program is a week-long investigation of engineering careers in areas such as mechanical, computer, environmental, electrical, chemical, biomedical, civil, geological, materials, and related disciplines.
