Summer Camps

Jumpstart your College Career: The University of Cincinnati (UC) College of Engineering and Applied Science (CEAS) offers unique summer camp experiences, perfect for high school students who are interested in pursuing careers in STEM.

Women in Engineering and Applied Science Summer Camp

For rising 9th through 12th grade females

This one-week day camp will allow you to develop your creativity as well as provide you with the opportunity to meet and speak with working engineers. For part of the camp, you will work on campus with different engineering departments, learning and completing hands-on projects to better understand the breadth and variety of different engineering fields. For the remainder of the camp, you will visit various corporate engineering plants such as General Electric, Procter & Gamble, and Northrop Grumman Xetron to meet professional engineers and see their work in action. Throughout the week, you will also take part in teamwork activities, group projects and sessions to learn about college preparation, approaches to teamwork, professional development, and meet UC Engineering and Applied Science students! On campus housing options available if you are traveling long distance. Camps run Monday through Friday, 9 AM-4 PM, concluding Friday with a goodbye banquet with parents.

Computer Science Annual Summer Camp

The Summer Camp in Computer Science provides high school students with a fun yet thorough introduction to the exciting field of Computer Science.

This two week day camp runs from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm Monday through Friday and provides campers with the opportunity to develop their computer skills and work with and meet working computer scientists.

Campers will participate in various activities, ranging from lectures, hands-on projects, and presentations of industrial applications as well as research projects. Current graduate and/or undergraduate students will participate in these activities, making presentations of their own projects.

Most activities will take place in a College of Engineering and Applied Science computer laboratory and consist of the following:

  • All campers will choose a project to complete during the camp.
  • To test their understanding, campers will be required to write programs implementing the solutions to some simple problems. They will be introduced to the two most important concepts in programming: correctness and efficiency of an algorithm.
  • All resources necessary to complete this project, computers, software, and extensive help, will be provided by the camp organizers.
