All participants in GE Next

GE Next Engineers

Engineers build jet engines that ensure safe and sustainable travel, design portable medical equipment to reach more patients around the world, and create wind turbines that generate cleaner energy. And we need a more diverse engineering profession to bring new perspectives, experiences, insights, solutions, and greater innovation to today’s challenges. And tomorrow’s.

Engineering Discovery: Ages 13–14

Youth build awareness about what engineers do through a variety of short, exploratory sessions. Volunteers deliver creative, hands-on activities in the classroom or community to inspire youth and expand their understanding of what engineering is all about.

Engineering Academy: Ages 15–18

Over three years, future engineers learn to think and act like engineers and prepare to advance to post-secondary education through the Academy. With over 80 hours per year outside of school, the Academy includes a series of immersive design challenges, career coaching, and college-readiness workshops to equip diverse groups of youth with the skills they need to build an engineering identity and career. Students completing the Engineering Academy and who are accepted to a post-secondary education engineering degree program will be awarded a $20,000 scholarship.
