These programs are geared to students looking to explore the full range of engineering fields offered at the University of Arizona. Use SolidWorks 3D CAD software to create engineering designs, do hands-on lab activities, interact with UA professors, students and professionals, and see how engineers make people’s lives better.

Admission is competitive, and sessions fill up quickly. So make your plans early and register online beginning in January.
Deadline to register is the first week in May.
In addition to registering online, you will need to submit the following:
Our goal is for students to enjoy engineering summer camp and get as much out of it as possible.
Interacting with the program counselors, students will learn about campus life, good study habits, college survival skills, safety, scholarships, campus resources, student clubs and many other useful topics.
Summer Engineering Academy rules of conduct are simple and strictly enforced.
We are proud to state that in the six years since the program began, we have not had to send home a single student.
We expect all participants to be:
The following are prohibited in the residences: halogen lamps; overloaded electrical, damaged or non-UL approved cords; unsafe placement of cords or improper use of electrical items; obstruction of sprinklers; obstruction of room door or windows; ceiling hangings or other decorations that are flammable or otherwise could contribute to fire spread; paper or other combustibles (including hats and scarves) hung on or near incandescent fixtures; use of any open flame device (candles, etc.) or open coil appliance, burning of incense, possession/use of fireworks, or other explosives, possession/storage of gasoline or other fuels/flammable chemicals; damaging or tampering with fire safety equipment (smoke detectors, extinguishers, fire horns, etc.); dismantling or otherwise interfering with exit signs; blocking open or otherwise interfering with the intended smoke-barrier purpose of fire doors; blocking hallways or building exits; failure to evacuate according to designated procedures during a building alarm and/or failure to follow instructions of University or fire safety personnel; false report of fire or other dangerous conditions (bomb threats, etc.); activating false alarms. Being responsible for a malicious or intentional false fire alarm will result in expulsion.
Health and Safety
Behavior that may result in personal injury or damage to property is prohibited. This includes, but is not limited to hall sports, water fights, practical jokes or "roughhousing," dropping items out of windows, improper behavior on balconies, tampering with or other misuse of elevators, and failure to observe fire safety rules and procedures.
Quiet Hours and Excessive Noise
Noise that is disruptive to others is prohibited. "Courtesy Hours" are always in effect, and residents are to respect requests of others for quiet. Nighttime hours are "Quiet Hours," when residents are to be especially aware of the volume and impact of their noise. At no time should amplified sound or yelling be directed out or at residents' windows, and residents need to maintain reasonable quiet in courtyard areas at all times.
Smoking is not allowed in any of the residences. Designated smoking areas are available outside all residence halls. [Not any more, right?]
Keys and Security
Exterior entrances at all residences are locked 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Building entrance keys or access cards and room keys are issued at check-in. After two lockout services, students will be charged $10 for each subsequent lockout. Residents are responsible for the security of their rooms and are encouraged to keep doors locked at all times when not present and when sleeping. Propping of building doors, allowing nonresidents to follow you into the building, duplicating, loaning, or other misuse of University/Residence keys is strictly prohibited. The replacement charge for a lost front door key is $25, and the cost is $30 for replacing a room key and changing the lock (charges subject to change.)
Residents will comply with all University and Residence Life standards and guidelines governing the use of computers and networks at the University of Arizona.
Residents will be held financially responsible for any damages to or loss of property attributable to their individual behavior or participation in any group activities. Residents of an entire floor or residence may be held responsible for activities, inattention or neglect that results in loss or damage to University property. Damage charges are added to the resident's University account. Residents must maintain their assigned rooms in a safe condition. Room furnishings shall not be removed or stored, and beds must not be lofted. Public area or lounge furnishings shall not be moved into a student’s room.
Residence Hall Facilities
Our residence halls are more than just a place to sleep, and we equip them accordingly. Beyond sleeping rooms and a front desk, many of our halls also provide kitchen and barbecue facilities, lounges and small meeting rooms, which can be reserved for guest use.
Each room is to be kept clean and orderly by the residents for maintenance of health and safety. Residents are responsible for cleaning up after themselves in bathrooms, kitchens and other common areas and are required to remove their room trash to the designated trash area outside the building (not doing so results in a $25 charge per bag/item). Residents may be billed individually or collectively for any excessive cleaning necessary as a result of student behavior.
Residence assistants are experienced students, selected and trained by Residence Life, who live on each floor or wing in a hall or apartment. Their job is to help create a caring and supportive environment. They listen, nurture and mentor fellow residents. They plan and implement programs, enforce policies and focus on building positive relationships among residents. Camp counselors for the Summer Engineering Academy help students settle in, make new friends, learn their way around, and get the most from the weeklong stay.
