Programs

Summer Bridge Program

TLSAMP students begin their college experience with a one-week summer orientation program involving workshops and seminars on study skills (e.g., math, chemistry, physics) along with building relationships and habits of successful students. Participants tour research centers of excellence and area industries. Recreational activities are included.

Freshman Experience

Freshman engineering students typically complete introductory engineering courses, mathematics, chemistry, and others. They also lean about the different engineering, computer science and engineering technology disciplines. This is a time when students learn to participate in group learning, connect with other students and grasp the professional aspect of career opportunities.

Apprenticeship Programs

TLSAMP students will have the opportunity to travel the world on study abroad trips, learn hands-on skills through internships and cooperative education and participate in exciting research projects. The College of Engineering will assist you in this summer learning experience.
