Engineering Camp June 20-22

Hello all!

Summer is right around the corner and with that means CAMPS are in full planning mode here at Burns & McDonnell!

As the invite states, all camps are free and will run from 9:00 – 3:00. Camps are limited to the first 50 applicants. Here are brief descriptions of the camps we are hosting:

Engineering U Academy: June 6 – 9 for any graduating senior in high school! This camp is going to be FULL of engineering opportunities and projects! We are even going on a field trip! We’ll look at various engineering disciplines, architecture, drafting, construction, project management, consulting engineering, etc. We will also meet with current summer interns and get great advice on how to make an easy transition from high school to college!

Engineering U (Co-ed): June 20 – 22: For incoming juniors/seniors. We’ll get students involved in some fun projects with our engineers and project managers and they’ll have the opportunity to meet with current summer interns and talk about how they got into engineering as a career! It’s a great opportunity to learn about consulting engineering, gain knowledge of different disciplines of engineering, architecture, construction and drafting!

Engineering U All Girls: August 1 – 3: For any incoming freshman – senior female interested in exploring engineering! The agenda will be basically the same as the co-ed Engineering U!

Please let me know if you have any questions!

Thank you!
