Participants conduct research under the guidance of UM faculty and graduate students. SHARP also gives participants a head start on the college application process and a glimpse into life as a Michigan Engineering student. Students are paired with participating labs based on interest and availability. Lab placement will take place after admission into the program. A list of participating labs and research topics for Summer 2021 coming soon.
At Engineering OnRamp, we recognize that success in the College of Engineering depends on students having a wide array of skills that go beyond math and science knowledge. EO101 is a curriculum developed by our staff to discuss both hard and soft skills that are necessary for academic, social and personal success and persistence in a competitive institution of higher education, like the University of Michigan. Topics include persistence, self-advocacy, finance, college admissions, emotional wellbeing, and much more! Specific topics are chosen based on program content, grade level and are included in all of our programs.
Alumni, Faculty, & Student Engagement
Throughout the program students will get a taste of their potential future with Michigan Engineering. Panel discussions with current undergraduate students, lectures from Faculty about their research, and presentations by Michigan Engineering Alumni about their careers in their field are built into the programming.
Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, our team has made the public health informed decision to provide our summer programs virtually for the Summer 2021 Season. Student safety is at the forefront of our priorities.
