S.E.E. how you can experience engineering before going to college!
Each June corporate partners within the engineering industry team together with Cor Jesu to give 20 rising juniors and seniors a week-long immersion into the field of engineering, discovering and exploring within a wide variety of industry disciplines—at no cost to students.
Each day, Mon-Thurs, has a different engineering focus at a variety of host sites, where students take part in hands-on activities and in-depth interactions with professionals to really experience all that being an engineer can mean. Students debrief with a accompanying CJ faculty member each day, prompted with questions from industry leaders at each site.
The week concludes back at Cor Jesu with a panel of participating professionals and STEM faculty who help facilitate student discussion/presentations about what they have learned and what conclusions—about the field of engineering and about themselves— can be drawn and applied to the Cor Jesu mission to transform the world.
Applications are accepted in February each year. Visit www.corjesu.org/cpi for more information.
