We have a summer in Storrs for you!
UConn's Pre-College Summer Global Engineering course provides high school students the opportunity to explore the world of engineering and how it is developing on a global scale at a nationally ranked public university campus.
Where will your future take you?
Perhaps around the world? Offered during Session 2, our Global Engineering course is designed to give students an overview of the exceptional opportunities for careers in Global Engineering. The course will review different branches in engineering from nano-technology, robotics, material sciences, aeronautical, biomedical, and computer engineering as well as green technologies to map how these branches are being developed globally. Becoming a global engineer will allow students to take a front-row seat anywhere in the world, whether they want to participate in cutting-edge work in multi-national corporations or participate in development and environmental engineering projects through the aegis of NGOs like Engineering Without Borders.
Our Global Engineering course will provide students with an opportunity to meet those currently pursing dual degrees in Engineering and Language & Culture at UConn (UConn currently has dual-degree programs in German, Spanish, Chinese and French). These young engineers spend the entire fourth year of their studies abroad during which time they complete an engineering internship in their field of specialty in the language and culture of their host country.
Global Engineering students will:
- Visit an engineering company and laboratory directly involved with global engineering in Connecticut
- Participate in workshops that explore how to navigate cultural differences in the workplace
- Learn some tips about what they can do to enhance their language preparation with a view to living and working abroad in the future
