Course Overview

Engineering is an expertise for applying science along with real practical data for solving a problem, given some limitations/specs. In this program you will learn about fundamental principles behind various engineering fields (mechanical, electrical, computer/programing, aero-astro, civil, … ) from MIT seasoned Instructors/Practitioners. This program will also help you to explore your potential college fields of interests while improving your odds of getting admitted to top Engineering schools.

Dorm Accommodations: Students in this program will reside at the Simmons University dorms and will be provided transportation to and from their class at MIT each day.

Excursions in Boston:

Students will have an opportunity to take their newfound skills outside of the classroom and visit MIT Engineering Labs. Students will also have an off campus excursion to an engineering firm.

Topics you'll explore

Hands-On Learning


Every day, we start with a "Warm-up Problem" to develop/improve your engineering thought process, by posing a simple science or engineering problem, and then teaching/guiding the students on how to approach and solve/answer those problems.
We continue with a lecture on the "Fundamentals of Science/Engineering" to cover an overview of the needed topic and knowledge for doing the "Hands-on Project" of the day. These projects are in various engineering/science fields such as: Aero Astro, Electronics, Robotics, Mechanical, Civil, Computer Science, Pneumatics …
During this program, our students will also visit various research and development centers at MIT to see and feel how MIT is really conducting such tasks.

Career Exploration


Through this course and program, you will get on-site experience and learn from experts in the field. We will gain an understanding of applied problem solving skills that are involved in Engineering.

Meet with successful professionals and experts in the fields of engineering and technology to learn more about careers and jobs in this field, and have the opportunity to ask questions and learn firsthand what it’s like to work as an engineer. This insight helps students reflect on which areas within the field of engineering is right for them.
