During your stay with ExciTES, you will be introduced to a variety of engineering fields including Electrical Engineering, Materials & Metallurgical Engineering, Civil Engineering, and Computer Science, through inquiry-based/team-oriented projects. You will conduct experiments in UTEP Engineering laboratories and facilities working side-by-side with UTEP engineering faculty and students.
ExciTES encourages students from the El Paso/Ciudad Juarez region to use their knowledge, imagination, and creativity and, apply it to traditional math and science problems. All the activities during the week are structured into a team environment where you will engage in hands-on and thematic modules. Rising sixth graders through high schoolers are eligible to attend.
The objectives of ExciTES are to 1) create awareness of the diverse fields of engineering and science and 2) encourage participants to attend college; specifically, UTEP's Colleges of Engineering and Science.
Fees will be collected the first day of the session. Do not send payment prior to being accepted. Applications will be reviewed and preliminary acceptance will occur on May 15th.
ExciTES Scholarships are available to subsidize the fee. Please make sure to complete the Personal Statement within the online application to be considered.
