See what

you can


Do you know what you want to study in college, or what career you want to pursue? Even with all the buzz about engineering, how much do you know about it? Perhaps it's all new to you. Or, maybe you like programming and you're comparing computer science and engineering.  Or, maybe you're interested in medicine and are wondering whether to go into biomedical engineering or medical school. There is a lot to explore as you consider your future!

Come learn what engineers do and what it would be like to study engineering in college at one of the nation's top engineering schools!

Try out real mechanical engineering practices to create your own products. You will learn how to:

  • Design your product using computer-aided design (CAD) software

  • Analyze your product using computer-aided engineering (CAE) software

  • Fabricate your product using 3D printers, laser cutters, resin casting, and hand-held tools

Learn about other engineering disciplines (electrical and computer, biomedical, chemical, robotics, etc.) through daily presentations and tours of CMU labs.

The workshop wants to introduce kids to engineering, so even if you’ve never thought about it before, come for a week to see what it’s all about!
