Engineering Camps

  

Do you like math and science, interested in how things work, enjoy problem solving and like working with a team of people?

If so, you might be a future engineer. From defense and infrastructure to telecommunications and consumer electronics, engineers make the world a better place. An engineering degree can also open doors to careers in business, law and medicine. The options are limited by only your imagination!

The Samuel Ginn College of Engineering wants to expose high school students to the world of engineering through our summer camps.  The camps will be conducted by faculty, staff and students from the college who will ensure students receive a broad overview of the engineering profession by participating in a number of hands-on activities. 

We will be offering the following camps this summer:

  • Auburn Engineering Summer Expo (rising 9th-12th graders)
  • Computing and Robotics for All (rising 7-8th graders)
  • Minority Introduction to Engineering Program (rising 8th- 12th graders)
  • Senior Tigers Engineering Camp (rising 12th graders)
  • The Future of Paper, Pulp and Paper Camp (rising 12th graders)

Registration information for each camp can be found below:


Auburn Engineering Summer Expo 1: June 23, 2023
Auburn Enigneering Summer Expo 2: June 26,2023
8:00 AM - 5:00PM
For rising 9th - 12th graders
Registration will open in Spring 2023

This is a one-day program. During the day, students will explore the different engineering majors while participating in hands-on activities to tackle challenges for a particular theme. Sessions will be led by engineering organizations, faculty members, and current Auburn Engineering students.  If you have any questions, please email the Office of Recruitment, K-12 Outreach, and Scholarship at futureengineer@eng.auburn.edu. We hope to see you at camp!

Senior Tigers Engineering Camp: July 16 - 21, 2023
For rising 12th graders 
This is a residential camp. Throughout the week, students will explore the different engineering majors while participating in hands-on activities. Sessions will be led by engineering faculty members, Auburn Engineering students and engineering organizations. If you have any questions, please email Auburn Youth Programs at auyouth@auburn.edu. We hope to see you at camp!


Minority Introduction to Engineering Program (MITE)
For rising 8th- 12th graders

The Minority Introduction to Engineering program (MITE) is a week-long residential summer program that allows underrepresented students the opportunity to be exposed to engineering design processes that are used to solve some of the world’s most pressing challenges. Participants will explore and be exposed to engineering through hands-on activities led by faculty and administrators. MITE participants will learn more about careers in engineering and the overall impact that one can have in this field.


The Future of Paper (Pulp and Paper Camp)
For rising 12th graders

The Pulp & Paper Camp, conducted by faculty, staff, and students from Auburn’s Alabama Center of Paper & Bioresource Engineering, is open to science-loving rising 12th graders who are interested in learning more about the power of paper for everyday life and the growing pulp and paper industry. Students interested in pursuing a degree in engineering (specifically chemical engineering, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, or biosystems engineering) are encouraged to participate in the pulp and paper summer camp to learn more about the Pulp, Paper, & Bioresource specialization at Auburn University and the Auburn Pulp & Paper Scholarship opportunities.

Campers will learn about paper and papermaking firsthand, as well as participate in hands-on papermaking and texting experiments, tour a local paper mill, and learn about engineering at Auburn University.

If you have any questions, please email Auburn Youth Programs at auyouth@auburn.edu.
