Stanford Summer Engineering Academy (SSEA) offers incoming first-year students a dynamic, hands-on, intensive four-week residential experience.
Students take math-mindset and computer science courses taught by Stanford faculty and graduate students, and gain exposure to the wealth of resources on campus. SSEA facilitates the transition to Stanford for incoming first-year students who may be underrepresented in engineering fields (women, first generation and/or low income, first in their family to study/pursue an engineering degree, or coming from under-resourced schools or environments with limited exposure to engineering curriculum).
During the academic year, SSEA participants have access to additional advising and support along with a community of peers and mentors to reinforce the skills and strategies acquired during the program.
SSEA runs from Aug. 3 to Aug. 30, 2019. The four-week program covers bioengineering, biomechanical engineering, civil and environmental engineering, chemical engineering, computer science, electrical engineering, management science and engineering, materials science and engineering, and mechanical engineering, as well as math and physics.
The program provides:
The application for SSEA is available to incoming Stanford first-year students after they have accepted their Stanford offer of admission. A SUNet ID is required in order to submit an application.
