Title:
Design for Manufacturing
Description:

The Design for Manufacturing Summer Camp is a two-day opportunity for high school students with interest in Mechanical Engineering (ME)  to get hands on experience building a CNC project of their own. A great chance for students to see if Mechanical Engineering might be their future career path.

What makes it great?

Participants get personal attention from Mines ME experts and use state-of-the-art equipment in SDSM&T's Haas Vertical Machining Center.  Lots of camaraderie and fun with instructors and other students who share this interest.
