High School Introduction to Engineering Systems for Twelfth Graders (HITES12)­­

Rising twelfth grade students live in a residence hall on campus, engage in hands-on engineering fundamentals activities, attend college life sessions, compete in engineering challenges, and tour all seven of the TCE engineering departments. Throughout the program, students team up to apply what was learned and work on an engineering design project. All applicants must have a minimum ACT math score of 25 (SAT math score of 590).­

Our mission is to provide students who show an interest in engineering studies an early exposure to, and preparation for, scientific study and research. Hands-on activities will spark an interest in the world of engineering and allow students to explore career opportunities. Throughout the program, participants will be challenged to apply what they have learned in engineering competitions.
