College of Engineering PREP-ME 2.0

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 create a positive, motivating, welcoming classroom and program environment for students, plus a culturally focused and enriching interaction with corporate sponsors during the five-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.

Each summer, the Preparation for Majoring in Engineering (PREP-ME) program creates a positive, motivating, welcoming classroom environment for incoming freshmen while priming them for the challenges of engineering. Participants in this five to six-week session receive a refresher in pre-calculus, learn fundamental concepts in engineering, and interact with corporate partners. They become familiar with the faculty and staff who will support them during their time at UIC Engineering, as well as with the technical and academic resources they will need to excel in their classes. Preparation for Majoring in Engineering is offered at no cost to all incoming College of Engineering freshmen. Find additional information and registration procedures on the website of UIC Summer College, of which this program is a part.
