The college app workshops will be on Wednesday, February 21st and Friday, February 23rd at lunch in Ms. J's room. These will be separate, continuous workshops.

Sophomores and juniors, there will be college application workshops in Mrs.J's room on Wednesday, February 21st and Friday, February 23rd. These are not the same workshops, but the first two in a series. Topics covered will include standardized testing, high school research and internship opportunities, summer programs, resume-building, application steps and tips. Hope to see you there!

The School of Engineering at Santa Clara University is pleased to present three programs in 2018 available to current high school sophomores and juniors interested in learning more about the field of engineering. Each program brings students to Santa Clara University’s campus to participate in various workshops or courses facilitated by our faculty. The goal of these programs is to provide students with a chance to explore the possibilities of engineering as a career with the hope of fostering a deeper interest in future engineering study.

Our program offerings vary in format and eligibility criteria to suit students across all levels of engineering exposure and need. We invite interested students to explore and apply for the program that is the best fit for them. The Spring Engineering Education Days (SEEDs) and Summer Engineering Seminar (SES) programs are geared towards students who have not yet committed to future engineering study and who have had minimal exposure to engineering topics due to lack of access, whereas the Young Scholars Program is open to students with any level of interest in and exposure to engineering. Due to the high level of student interest and limited space, SEEDs and SES program acceptance has become highly competitive. Please see additional information about each program below.

Spring Engineering Education Days (SEEDs)
: The 2018 SEEDs program provides Bay Area high school students with a unique opportunity to explore introductory engineering topics. Selected participants come to Santa Clara University over the course of three April Saturdays (April 7, 21, 28) from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
 to participate in workshops spanning several engineering disciplines. Workshops are presented in a typical university format, with a mix of lecture and interactive experiences. There is no cost to participate in this program outside of transportation to and from the university, and lunch will be provided. Program applications and recommendations are due by February 2, 2018.

Summer Engineering Seminar (SES): In its 29th year, the SES program is an outstanding, five-day experience in July offering specially designed introductory workshops taught by our engineering faculty. Workshops are presented as a mix of lecture and interactive laboratory work, spanning several fields of engineering. The SES program also provides students with a taste of university life, as they stay in university residence halls for the duration of the program, eat meals on campus, and take part  in afternoon recreational activities and evening projects. There is no cost to participate in this program outside of transportation to and from the university. Program applications and recommendations are due by March 2, 2018.

Young Scholars Program: The Young Scholars Program provides local high school students the opportunity to enroll in college level courses during the university’s first summer session (June 20-July 27) at a 75% tuition discount and receive college credits upon completion. Engineering offerings include: Intro to Engineering and Intro to Logic Design. The College of Arts & Sciences is also offering Intro to Computer Science. Applications are due by April 13, 2018. Students are encouraged to apply early as space is limited.

Full program details and applications can be found at: www.scu.edu/engineering/outreach. We have also enclosed copies of our Pre-College Engineering Programs postcard to share with interested students.
