These camps are designed to provide students with a broad exposure to the variety of engineering disciplines -- aerospace, civil & environmental, computer science, electrical, materials science and mechanical. Field trips to area businesses and team projects supplement the classroom activities.
Entry to Engineering
A team of engineering professors and graduate and undergraduate students from all of UTA’s engineering departments present material from all of UTA’s engineering disciplines – aerospace, biomedical, civil, computer science, electrical, environmental, industrial, materials science, and mechanical.
There are also special presentations by professors in related fields such as physics and mathematics and instruction on technical writing and presentations.
This one-week day camp will introduce middle school young women to the field of engineering by showing how engineering is connected to personal issues, social concerns, and community interests.
By conveying engineering concepts in a more personal, social and community-oriented context and introducing them to middle school girls, we will show how engineers connect, communicate, and improve the world. Campers will experience faculty presentations and lectures, lab tours, field trips, hands-on activities.
