Undergraduates - First Year

Description:
Engineering Ahead is a family of six summer programs at Penn State for underrepresented students in engineering, sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF). These programs, which are located at the Penn State Abington, Altoona, Berks and University Park campuses, build on years of experience to deliver a comprehensive experience to students focusing on math and science courses that are critical to engineering degrees. These programs go further by getting students working on hands-on projects and experiences to develop an engineering mentality. Students also begin building their professional networks with upperclassmen and faculty members.

The Engineering Ahead program is a free four-week summer academic enhancement program. This program is designed to help incoming Engineering students succeed in their math and science courses in their fall semester.
