The Summer Engineering Academy is a series of weeklong residential camps held on the University of Arizona campus for students passionate about engineering and science. This is a great opportunity to explore engineering careers, get to know the University of Arizona, and meet lifelong friends.

You are welcome to attend multiple interdisciplinary and major-specific programs during the same summer.

• Work on design challenges and projects with UA professors and students in engineering labs.
• Use facilities such as wind tunnels, circuit fabrication labs, materials processing labs, and mining simulators.
• Develop engineering skills in 3-D CAD software, aerodynamics, electrical design, structural analysis, and more.
• Relax and enjoy evening activities at the Student Rec Center, Flandrau Science Center, and the Steward Observatory Mirror Lab.
• Live in a residence hall and dine at the Student Union with UA Engineering students.
• Build friendships and relationships with current and future UA Wildcats!
