The College of Engineering is actively engaged in nurturing science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) studies in our community and to the region's youth.

See below for our WE2 high school program in engineering for young women, high school robotics program and our Center for Inclusive Competitiveness run Pennsylvania MESA programs. The College also offers a summer enrichment program for a select group of incoming freshmen by invitation.

K-12 Programs

Engineering Leaders Enrichment and Academic Program (e_LEAP)

By invitation, a small group of high-potential incoming freshman students are invited to start their college experience in a 3-week optional summer program. The course is an extension of the Introduction to Engineering course taken by students in their first semester. It will cover topics in engineering fundamentals with the addition of college transition and academic and career success strategies. Team building and social activities are also incorporated.
