Career Development Course:
Students spend the afternoons learning from engineers in industry about their jobs and how they developed professional skillsets. Summer TRACK completers report having a stronger understanding of the career they want to pursue. The Career Development Course has three tracks based on discipline-specific career interests.
Computer and Hardware Systems: Careers with a strong integration of electrical, computer, and software systems are emphasized through visits to IBM, Garmin, and other companies that focus on emerging technologies.
Infrastructure and Spatial Engineering: Construction, utility management, and mining operations are the focus of the Infrastructure and Spatial Engineering track through visits to Sundt, the San Xavier Mine, and the WEST Center. The Infrastructure and Spatial Engineering track is part of the Building Pathways program.
Manufacturing and Fabrication: The growing manufacturing industry in Arizona is centered in the Manufacturing and Fabrication track, featuring a pre-session visit to the Phoenix metro area to visit companies like Boeing and the Salt River Project, as well as local visits during the summer session with World View.
Planning for Summer 2024 is still in the works, so this schedule may slightly change, and new tracks might be added. We will contact applicants with details as they develop.
Students who are eligible to receive a Pell Grant may have the remainder of their tuition and fees covered by the College of Engineering. Students who are ineligible for Pell can apply for scholarships after admittance to the program.
