The College of Engineering Enrichment Institute (CE2I) is an innovative and intensive summer bridge to college program designed to prepare students for the rigors of an Engineering, Computer Science, or Technology Curriculum and to aid with the transition between high school and college. The Institute is a five-week residential program, where participants will complete coursework in Math, Science, Technology, and Professional Development. The Institute is math intensive; a math readiness test will be administered initially to determine the appropriate math placement. The goal of the program is to achieve a mastery of one math level higher than the student placed when he/she entered the program. The program will also introduce students to basic concepts in chemistry, physics, and computing. Professional Development activities such as field trips to area engineering and technology industries; personal and professional development seminars and workshops i.e. time management, study skills, learning style inventories, effective use of study groups, seven (7) habits of successful people, to name a few. No course credits toward a Bachelor of Science degree will be earned in this summer program. Upon successful completion of the challenging course work, professional development seminars, and other important scholarly activities, students will hopefully be better prepared for the upcoming fall semester. The Roy G. Perry College of Engineering’s motto is “Imagine the Possibilities…..” your possibilities at PVAMU begins with this program!!!!!!
The program requires a minimal processing fee of $100.00. The remaining expenses (living and educational expenses) are covered by funding from industry, foundations, grants, individuals, and the Roy G. Perry College of Engineering. Selected students build confidence in their ability to be successful in a demanding academic atmosphere, and have an opportunity to work in teams and build networks and relationships that will last through their matriculation in the College.
