Our six summer offerings give you a taste of what working engineers experience in real life. Each program lasts just a few days, so you can attend more than one offering if you like.

Each engineering program is held at our Illinois Tech satellite campus at 201 East Loop Road in Wheaton, Illinois.


Introduction to Biomedical Engineering

Biomedical engineers improve our health and lives through advances such as artificial organs, sophisticated robotoperated surgical equipment, advanced medical imaging, and deep brain stimulation. read more


Introduction to Computer-Aided Design (CAD)

Computer-aided design (CAD) deals with a variety of topics, including creating simple drawings to 3-D visualization of engineering design. This course is specifically focused on engineering design as it relates to building and construction. read more


Introduction to the World of Engineering and Fabrication Studio

In the first week, you will learn through speakers and hands-on activities what biomedical, chemical, electrical, mechanical, civil, and environmental engineers do in their jobs. You’ll use Arduinos and 3-D printers to explore areas of engineering in greater depth and to see how math and science provide a basis for technology innovation. read more


Introduction to Robotics

Whether it be in manufacturing, medicine, or your very own home, robots are everywhere! New strides in robotics are being made every day thanks to innovative engineers. This is the course where you will discover this ever-expanding field of engineering. read more


Introduction to Microcontrollers and Automation

What do drones, thermostats, and Wii systems have in common? They all need to take measurements from their environments and to apply programmed logic in order to fly in the correct direction, to keep the temperature of a room comfortable, and to accurately capture your movements to win a game. read more


Pre-College Transportation Engineering Program

Pre-College Transportation Engineering is a program to help you learn all about engineering and how you, too, can become an engineer. Students participate in a two-week learning opportunity with professors and advanced engineering students from Illinois Tech. read more
