Thank you for your interest! The 2019 sessions are filled. We look forward to seeing you at next year’s camp!
Calling all future engineers!
Are you interested in being a part of exciting and interactive activities to learn what engineers really do? This camp is for YOU!
Since 1991, Purdue University Northwest has been a regional leader in preparing students for collegiate study in engineering. Through interactive engagement with faculty, industrial partners, and current engineering students, future engineers can learn what engineers do, and learn more about many fields of study within engineering.
Learn it. See it. Do it!
Our summer engineering camp uses hands-on interactive activities for learning and experimentation. Students will be exposed to lab and classroom experiences in civil, mechanical, electrical, and computer engineering. All of these areas are degree programs offered at Purdue University Northwest. Interaction with current students and faculty will allow students to ask questions, get answers, and be prepared for college.
You will learn not only the basic principles of engineering, but also the important skills of team building, computer-aided engineering, decision making, and much more!
Application deadline is May 17, 2019.
Purdue University Northwest and Enbridge came together to form a partnership to support current and future PNW students interested in pursuing careers in the engineering discipline. Through this partnership, Enbridge is the named sponsor of the Purdue Northwest Enbridge Summer Engineering Camp, which supports engineering education among middle and high school students in Northwest Indiana.
