A course designed to introduce high school sophomores and juniors to engineering disciplines will be held this summer at the University of Missouri-Rolla.

The Jackling Introduction to Engineering course is sponsored jointly by UMR’s office of distance and continuing education and 16 academic departments at UMR. Participants may choose from one of three five-day sessions — June 19-24, June 26-July 1, or July 10-15 — on the UMR campus.

Participants will experience campus living by staying in the residence halls during the session. They will participate in small group laboratories in engineering departments of their choice, learn about all of the engineering disciplines offered at UMR, and learn analysis and design methods. Participants who later enroll at UMR will receive credit toward Introduction to Careers in Engineering, a one-half credit hour course at UMR.

The course registration fee is $475 for students who chose to live in campus residence halls during the program, and $365 for those who choose to commute to the campus daily. Fees cover meals, course notes and laboratory supplies. For more information or to request an application, contact course director Dr. Ralph Flori, associate professor of basic engineering at UMR, at or call (573) 341-4588.
