College of Engineering PREP-ME Summer Workshop

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

In advancing UIC’s mission of access to excellence and success, the College of Engineering offers the PREP-ME (Preparation for Majoring in Engineering) Workshop. PREP-ME makes the mathematics in engineering come alive, and previews the panorama of mathematics problems and core engineering concepts that UIC engineers will encounter in their undergraduate careers. Our student-centered format and emphasis on personalized instruction creates a positive, motivating, welcoming classroom and program environment for students, plus a culturally focused and enriching interaction with corporate sponsors during the six-week session. To familiarize students with UIC’s institutional structure and campus personnel of the College of Engineering, technical and academic resources are introduced throughout the summer session. We strongly encourage all engineering freshmen to take advantage of this opportunity and get an early start on success at UIC.
