Curriculum Information

AI4ALL scholars will explore a broad spectrum of computer science topics focused on artificial intelligence. Applicable science and math concepts are taught as they relate to the student’s projects.

We have a curriculum that changes year-to-year based on scholar and instructor feedback. Each year scholars can anticipate engaging in challenging projects that are specifically designed to impart essential skills that lead to success in the Engineering field. During previous summers, students learned about a number of topics including natural language processing, object detection in sports and medicine, image filtering and indexing, and much more! Students then implemented their own research on their favorite topics with the help of U-M computer science graduate students

EO101

At Engineering OnRamp, we recognize that success in the College of Engineering depends on students having a wide array of skills that go beyond math and science knowledge. EO101 is a curriculum developed by our staff to discuss both hard and soft skills that are necessary for academic, social and personal success and persistence in a competitive institution of higher education, like the University of Michigan. Topics include persistence, self-advocacy, finance, college admissions, emotional well-being, and much more! Specific topics are chosen based on program content, grade level and are included in all of our programs.

Alumni, Faculty, & Student Engagement

Throughout the program, students will get a taste of their potential future with Michigan Engineering. Panel discussions with current undergraduate students, lectures from Faculty about their research, and presentations by Michigan Engineering Alumni about their careers in their field are built into the programming.

Program Schedule

Programming will be held in person at the University of Michigan Ann Arbor. Participants will live on campus in Bursley Hall. Students will spend half their day in the classroom with the instructional team, and half their day with student life advisors visiting labs, touring the campus, and experiencing all that the University has to offer!

Schedule and programming format are subject to change based on University guidelines.

Health and Safety

Vaccination is an important and effective step in protecting our community from COVID-19 and safely returning to in-person and residential Pre-College programs. Following University of Michigan Housing requirements, all residential program participants must be vaccinated for COVID-19 prior to arrival to the program. Medical and religious exemptions will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.

Additionally, all participants in in-person and residential Engineering OnRamp programs must comply with the University of Michigan’s Face Covering Policy.

In-person and residential programs will only occur if the College of Engineering and the University of Michigan can offer a safe and public health-informed experience for everyone involved. Applicants should be aware that in-person and residential programs may be canceled at any time.

*All Engineering OnRamp Participants must be U.S. Citizens or Permanent Residents of the U.S.
