JHU Engineering Innovation: Summer program for high school students

Engineering Innovation is the summer version of a course offered to first-year engineering majors at Johns Hopkins University. The course, which during regular terms lasts a semester, has been condensed into four weeks. During the program, students complete lab activities in computer, chemical, electrical, computer, civil, mechanical engineering, and materials science. Students who earn an A or B in the class receive three college credits from JHU.

The course will be offered on the Homewood campus from June 24 through July 19, Monday through Friday (except July Fourth), 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

This course is rigorous, and students must have As and Bs in their high school math and science classes. They also must have taken the following subjects to be eligible to apply:

  • Algebra II
  • Physics or Chemistry
  • Trigonometry, or have learned to use the trig functions — up through the application of the laws of sines and cosines—to resolve non-right angle triangles in another math course.

Most students are rising juniors and seniors in high school.

JHU tuition remission can be used for this program.
