Careers in Engineering
Summer Engineering Course For High School Students
Open To Students Entering Grades 9 – 12
Do you enjoy science and math? Do you want to provide real solutions that help improve efficiency and lives in the world around you? A pre-college engineering course could be the right choice for you!
What Is Engineering?
Engineers provide solutions to numerous problems. They understand the world around them and offer theories to make things more efficient and effective. Using scientific and mathematic principles, engineers improve current processes while anticipating future complications in areas from architecture to healthcare to the environment and more.
Students with analytical minds who enjoy asking questions and understanding the “whys” behind how things work may find success in and enjoy a career in engineering. Engineering is the perfect mix of creative thinking and analytic processing. Though the historical majority of engineers have been males, the rate of female engineers, along with careers in engineering as a whole, are on the rise.

The Blueprint experience was great for preparing you for the college life and giving you a better perspective on what you are interested in.
Lauren Lamoley was great; she was so kind, fun, and helpful. She made an excellent camp director!
I was very nervous at first but it turned out to be a great experience! I met lots of new friends, got the college feel and felt a lot better about going away to college. I would encourage everyone to do it!
