COVID19 Status: We do not yet know how the COVID19 Health Emergency will affect our Summer Programs.  Due to school closures we have extended application deadlines.  It is possible that our programs could be canceled, postponed or modified depending on restrictions imposed by the State and/or University.

We understand that it may be difficult to obtain teacher recommendations and/or transcripts while schools are not in session.  Do your best by emailing your teacher and school administrator if you can, and keep us informed of your progress.  If you have difficulty filling out an application on the website or are unable to print an application, please contact Anyssa Choy at for help.


June 8-July 3, 2020: Engineering Summer Academy - EXTENDED DEADLINE

Due to the current COVID-19 Healthy Emergency, we have to had to change our summer programs. 

There are now two (3 hour/day M-F) interactive online sessions: 

  1. June Session (June 8-26, 2020)
  2. July Session (July 14-31, 2020)*
*This July session may alternatively become an in-person session from July 6-31, if UNM reopens by July. 


The Engineering Summer Academy offers participants three weeks of online activities & learning experiences in all areas of engineering and computer science. Students meet with engineering & computer science students as well as STEM faculty and industry professionals through activities and field trips. College prep and ACT test practices are available.

High school students who are in going into the 9th, 10th and 11th grades in Fall 2020 are eligible to participate. Students from populations that are historically underrepresented and undeserved in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) careers are encouraged to apply. Upon successful completion of the program, students will earn a small stipend for their participation.

 For questions about the program, please email

The deadline for the June & July Session is now closed.
