    I am currently a junior and I have applied to a few of the academy summer programs. In the event that I am not accpeted into one of these programs, I am trying to find a summer program in the engineering field. I have read about a few at big universities - Illinois, UCONN, University of Colorado. I am just wondering if anyone on ths board has any advice on a specific school or program that may be looked upon favorably by KP. I really need a short program one or two weeks because I need to spend the majority of the summer working.

    Thanks

    Manhattan College has a summer engineering program for high school students of about 1 week. They have a very strong engineering program.

    A.P.

    If your H.S. doesn't offer them ... try to locate a nearby school that offers A.P. courses in calculus and/or physics. These are the "killer" subjects at K.P.
    Short intro courses to "engineering" are probably worthless.

    Thermo was, to me, the toughest engineering subject at KP.
