Electrical and Computer Engineering Summer Institute

July 27 - 31, 2020

Are you an aspiring engineer looking for a hands-on summer experience?

The scope of technologies that ECE helps advance is incredibly broad—machine learning, wireless communications, bio-imaging, green energy, Internet of Things, cybersecurity, nanotechnology—just to name a few. In short, any technology, platform, or system that requires computers, embedded systems, or circuits to operate was almost certainly designed and developed by an ECE engineer.

Program Overview

Students working in lab

The Drexel University Electrical and Computer Engineering Summer Institute will give aspiring engineers the chance to learn about how fundamental disciplines within ECE, such as signal processing, computer hardware and software, circuits, and algorithms, contribute to the technology that powers our world, from cell phones to autonomous vehicles.

The week-long institute will consist of eight to ten half-day hands-on modules, each exploring a different topic within Electrical and Computer Engineering. Students will gain an understanding of how science, technology, and math are the tools used by an engineer to create something new and beneficial to society. Each module will include a motivational talk by a member of our faculty and an interactive activity that gives students an opportunity to develop first-hand knowledge about the area.


$850 includes lunch as well as all educational and laboratory supplies.


Applications will be accepted until June 30, 2020 and will be reviewed on a monthly basis starting in March 2020. Apply here.

To apply, you must be a rising high school freshman, sophomore, junior or senior.
