It's Time You Came to CAMP

The South Dakota School of Mines & Technology offers students a unique opportunity to participate in a student-centered, hands-on, engineering program called CAMP, the Center of Excellence for Advanced Manufacturing and Production.

CAMP is a competitive, nationally-recognized program that brings together students, faculty, and industry leaders to partner on real-world projects.  Students participating in CAMP can be part of a team preparing for national competition by building alternative fuel vehicles, a concrete canoe, an unmanned aerial vehicle, or a mini Indy or Baja car, or working on projects involving robotics or hydrogen fuel cells.

Work With Other Students

CAMP is social as well as instructive.  Students form lifelong bonds with their CAMP team members as they all work towards project goals and often participate in competitions against other universities.

When SDSM&T grads apply for their first science and engineering jobs, they get hired.  Programs like CAMP are part of the reason.  Hands-on learning, and knowing how to work in a team environment towards accomplishments and deadlines, pair with academic training to prepare our students to make a difference when they go out to pursue their careers.

We encourage any student, even those not in engineering, to participate in the CAMP experience.  DESIGN, BUILD, TEST and COMPETE -- and learn a world of new things in the process!
