Michael J. Birck Innovation Engineering Program for High School Students
Students participating in these courses work directly with faculty and community professionals within a multi-generational learning environment to receive two undergraduate credits for each course that is successfully completed. The goals of the Birck Innovation Engineering Program are for students to be equipped with design content, interpersonal skills, an awareness of STEM careers, and industrial experiences. Through hands-on, “real-world” projects, students learn concepts and processes that are common in current design and engineering practice, and develop the interpersonal and communication skills that are required in today’s business world.
