Engineering Academies for K-12 Students
The Marquette University College of Engineering Outreach Program offers a wide variety of interesting and challenging programs for students of all ages, including the iHeels program featured in the 2011 MU Engineering Magazine. Our courses are designed to challenge our youth to become critical-thinking problem solvers, appreciate STEM, and explore the engineering design process. Since 2006, the Outreach team continues to develop and offer unique opportunities for students to have fun while solving real-world engineering problems.
