Explorations in Engineering and Computing
July 12-18, 2020

The college initiated the first Explorations in Engineering and Computing (EEC) program in 2018. The program identifies and selects rising twelfth-grade students who demonstrate interests within math and science. The goal is to educate high school seniors about engineering careers and to spark their interest in a career in science, technology, engineering or mathematics (STEM). 

EEC provides an opportunity to explore engineering, computing and technology while experiencing campus life at Tennessee Tech, the state’s only four-year technological university. EEC will be hosted July 12-18, 2020.

Students live in a residence hall on campus, engage in hands-on engineering fundamentals activities and college life sessions, compete in engineering challenges and work as teams to apply what was learned in various engineering design projects.


The EEC program provides a one-week experience, at no cost, and includes the following:
·      Orientation session
·      Ice breakers and team building exercises
·      Residential hall accommodations for six nights
·      College life and preparation sessions with university staff
·      Engineering department visits hosted by university faculty
·      Tennessee Tech campus tour
·      Meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner)
·      Supplies
·      Campus life and recreation
·      Hands-on laboratory demonstrations
·      Engineering challenges and group design projects
·      Closing awards reception
