Women in Engineering Summer Program

UIC is launching the Women in Engineering Summer Program for high school students this summer 2015. It is open to all high schools, public and private, but we are targeting a specific group of students. The program is designed for rising juniors and seniors with a cumulative GPA of 3.2 or higher with grades of As and Bs in math and science courses. The goal of the program is to give students an opportunity to learn more about the different fields of engineering through hands on projects and field trips; and that ultimately they will consider studying engineering at UIC. For further details, you check out the webpage here: wiesp.engr.uic.edu. You can also check out the attached flyer for more information.
