Computing for Power and Energy (CPE): The Old, The New and The Renewable
CPE is a Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program hosting 10 undergraduate students over 10-weeks. REU participants work on computing based research projects targeting power and energy challenges, including those in old technologies such as smart power grids, new technologies such as data centers and portable electronics and renewable technologies such as in nanosensors and energy conversion systems. For more information, please visit the CPE REU website.
Drexel Research Experience in Advanced Materials (DREAM)
DREAM is a 10-week Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program, hosted by the Department of Materials Science and Engineering. DREAM supports 10 to 15 undergraduate students to work with Drexel faculty members in nanomaterials, biomaterials and the design and processing of advanced materials. For more information, please visit the DREAM website.
Drexel University Computing Academy (DUCA)
DUCA is a five-week, residential summer learning experience at Drexel University. Through DUCA, students share an authentic college experience, exploring information technology and computer science through interactive classes, group projects and labs while living on Drexel's campus. The program is open to current high school sophomores and juniors from anywhere in the U.S. For more information, please visit the DUCA website.
Engineering Cities is a 10-week REU program hosted by the Department of Civil, Architectural and Environmental Engineering. Undergraduate students study urban engineering and conduct research while working with faculty on some of the most pressing engineering problems facing the rapidly growing urban world. Students also participate in lectures, attend seminars and travel to Washington D.C. to learn about urban policy-making. For more information, please visit the Engineering Cities website.
GK-12 is a four-week program that pairs educational teams of Drexel Engineering graduate fellows and teachers from middle schools in the School District of Philadelphia to collaborate in identifying and designing engineering and technology based classroom materials. During the program, the teams develop curricula that will be implemented throughout the upcoming academic year in middle school classrooms. The GK-12 fellows spend 10 hours per week throughout the school year helping the teachers implement the lessons they developed over the summer. For more information, please visit the GK-12 website.
Materials Science and Engineering Summer Institute
The Drexel University Materials Science & Engineering Summer Institute will give aspiring scientists and engineers the chance to learn about how atomic elements arrange themselves to form the materials that are all around us. Furthermore, the Summer Institute will emphasis how variables in processing of materials determine physical, mechanical, electrical and thermal properties. Through hands-on science and engineering activities, students will gain an understanding of how materials impact the fields of energy, biotechnology and electronics. Sustainability and nanotechnology will be a theme woven through all of the modules. For more information, please visit the Summer Institute website.
Math and Science Partnership (MSP)
MSP is a partnership between Drexel and the School District of Philadelphia that takes place over a two-week period. Fifth and sixth grade science teachers work with Drexel Engineering faculty and staff to prepare for the first marking period content of the district's new science curriculum. Instruction takes place in the classroom and in teaching laboratories where the teachers are introduced to creative ways to incorporate engineering into their science curriculum. For more information, please visit the MSP website.
Research Experience for Teachers in Nanotechnology (RET-Nano)
RET-Nano provides experiential engineering education to K-12 teachers in the Delaware Valley region through laboratory discovery. The RET-Nano program is a partnership between Drexel and the University of Pennsylvania where teachers learn about the cutting-edge field of nanotechnology through research. Participants design lesson plans around their RET experience in order to energize their classroom teaching and also attend grant writing workshops. For more information, please visit the RET-Nano website.
SENSORS: From Design to Implementation
SENSORS is a 10-week REU program on sensors from science to application where undergraduates gain hands-on experience in sensor research through work with faculty mentors, field trips, research and ethics workshops. For more information, please visit the SENSORS website.
ASM International: Materials Camp
The Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Drexel University, in conjunction with the ASM International Philadelphia "Liberty Bell" Chapter, host Materials Camp, a week-long, hands-on academic day camp to introduce high school students to the exciting and important field of materials science and engineering. Materials Camp provides the perfect opportunity for high school students to explore the field of materials science and engineering. For more information, please visit the Materials Camp website.
Summer Music Technology Program (SMT)
Summer Music Technology (SMT) Program is an innovative, one-week learning experience that provides twenty high school sophomores and juniors with a unique opportunity to learn about music production technology and digital audio from Drexel faculty and students. This program approaches music and audio technology from the perspective of engineering, mathematics and science. For more information, please visit the SMT page.
Interdisciplinary Research Experience for Undergraduates (iREU)
Interdisciplinary Research Experience for Undergraduates (iREU) in Medicine, Energy, and Advanced Manufacturing iREU is a nine week research experience for undergraduate students (REU) program housed in the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Mechanics in Drexel's College of Engineering. iREU supports up to 12 undergraduate students to work with Drexel faculty members in the areas of medicine, energy and advanced manufacturing. The program provides students with field trips, social activities, technical and graduate related seminars and more to complement their in-lab research experience.
