Programs for High School Students
The Electrical and Computer Engineering Department, in support of the university's STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) education outreach, offers a variety of programs to give high school students a taste of the engineering experience. Students participate in hands-on engineering projects and learn firsthand about the kinds of challenges and rewards that come with an engineering career.
Currently offered in the fall and the spring, Higher Steps is a six-week program designed and taught by the SDSMT Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) Department. For three hours every Saturday, high school students come to Mines and work on hands-on activities like soldering, programming, building a working radio, and robotics with our renowned faculty.
Science Summer Camp
The Electrical and Computer Engineering Department participates in the SDSM&T Science Summer Camps program. Week-long programs limited to small student groups so each camper receives one-on-one attention. The quality of the curriculum, the setting, the resources and facilities available on campus makes each SDSM&T camp the highlight of the summer for students who participate.
