Purdue Summer Programs

Women in Engineering EDGE Camp
The Women in Engineering Program at Purdue University is dedicated to enriching the profession of Engineering through the full participation of women.  The EDGE camp was designed to show early High School students what career choices are available in Engineering.  Camp activities are chosen that specifically target topics of interest to young women and highlight the opportunities available within the Purdue College of Engineering.  This strategy is designed to show the campers that engineering is a feasible career choice, regardless of their personal interests or individual talents.  All campers stay in the residence halls.  To be considered for the camp, the student must submit a teacher’s recommendation and write an essay about something that they would invent to make their family’s life easier.
