About the Program
Student Introduction To Engineering (SITE) is a summer program for rising high school juniors and seniors who are interested in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, hosted by The University of Alabama College of Engineering.
SITE sessions are offered during the month of July each year. The dates for 2016 are July 10-15, July 17-22 and July 24-29. To be considered for SITE, you must submit an online application.
SITE consists of five nights of fun and exploration! You won’t roast marshmallows at this camp. As a SITE student, you’ll live in a UA residence hall, engage in teaming exercises, and tour an industrial plant to see engineers at work. You’ll challenge your mind with mathematics, engineering, computer science and English courses. And you’ll team with other ambitious students in a design competition sure to test your skills.
About 40 students are selected to participate in each weeklong session.
