Engineering Camp

Due to COVID-19, and out of concern for the safety of our guests, we have canceled all summer academic camps for 2020. We would love to host you for a campus visit when it is safe to do so. If you would like information on any of our academic programs, please contact Admissions.

July 6-10, 2020 and July 13-17, 2020

Engineering Camp

This summer, explore an exciting career in engineering at Cedarville's Engineering Camp. You will receive superior instruction from top faculty in the fields of computer science and electrical, computer, mechanical and civil engineering. Discover how engineering fits into the Christian worldview and find out what it takes to become an engineer. Then begin preparing for a lifetime of challenge and opportunity.

Engineering Camp is sponsored by the Cedarville University School of Engineering and Computer Science. Offering ABET-accredited degrees in Civil, Computer, Electrical, and Mechanical Engineering as well as Computer Science, the department is on the leading edge of engineering in Christian higher education.

Engineering Camp is open to Christian students entering 11th and 12th grades, or incoming freshmen to Cedarville University, who are considering engineering as a career.
