Engineering Math Acceleration Program
You are invited to participate in the new Engineering Math Acceleration Program happening on campus at the University of Arkansas this summer between June 29 - August 3. The program is offered by the College of Engineering and tuition, housing, and meals are all included for free. Accepted students must purchase their course materials, which cost approximately $130.
During the Engineering Math Acceleration Program, you will have the chance to live on campus and take GNEG 1515, Engineering Mathematics. Meet other students, learn more about the opportunities and resources waiting for you in the College of Engineering, and prepare to take Calculus I this coming Fall. The engineering mathematics course will take place on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday from 9:30am – 11:30am and 1:30pm – 4pm each week. We will have academic success component on Wednesdays from 9:30-10:30 am. Mandatory study hall will be on Sundays and Wednesdays from 6:00-9:00pm Access to online materials will be available on the first day of class. Due to the demanding nature of the course, students will not be able to work during this five week period.
The program covers tuition and fees for the summer, as well as room and board on the U of A campus. While you’re here, you’ll also have the opportunity to take advantage of other activities and programs throughout the summer.
The students who participate in the summer program will also be required to live in the Engineering Living Learning Community (LLC) during the school year. All LLC students will live on the 3rd or 4th floor of Yocum Hall. They will have a unique opportunity to live with other first year engineering students to have formal and informal study sessions, interaction with faculty and staff, and guest speakers on a variety of engineering and student success related topics.
Students who make an A in Engineering Mathematics will receive a $500 one time scholarship for the Fall semester.
