Boot Camp

Rapidly engage in the core curriculum through a “refresher” boot camp.

We anticipate that many students enrolled in the program will be engineers who have been working in industry for a few years, or students who may be unfamiliar with certain core concepts that are typically covered only in 200-300 level courses. Therefore, the program will include an intensive boot camp experience during the week preceding the start of the Fall semester. Activities will include “bite size” lectures on key engineering technical concepts, as well as biology and statistics, while encouraging social interaction with classmates, faculty, and other graduate students.  Meals are provided, and there will be no homework assignments or grades.

Participation is required of all students in the program.
