NEW Engineering Summer Program for High School Students at the University of San Diego

We would like to introduce you to an engineering summer program for high school students at the University of San Diego!

The Johns Hopkins Engineering Innovation Summer (EI) Program is looking for motivated high school students interested in learning more about a career in engineering.  EI is the summer version of a freshman course offered to undecided engineering majors at JHU.  We have condensed the semester-long course into four weeks.  During the program, students complete lab activities in computer, chemical, electrical, computer, civil, mechanical engineering, materials science and robotics.  They also prepare a presentation in response to a Request for Proposal, learn about engineering economics, write a research paper, build a spaghetti bridge, and have the opportunity to earn college credit.

Please take time to view a short video to hear from our past students.  This video is found on our website:

This course is rigorous, and students must have As and Bs in their high school math and science classes. They also must have taken the following subjects to be eligible to apply:

  • Algebra II
  • Lab Science (physics, chemistry, or biology)
  •  Trigonometry, or have learned to use the trig functions

up through the application of the laws of sines and

cosines to resolve non-right angle triangles in another

math course

  • Most students are rising Juniors and Seniors in high school


Course Dates:




  • June 25  – July 20, 2018; Monday – Friday; 9:00 am – 3:00 pm
