About the Camp

Each summer, UB offers an Engineering Design Camp where participants:

  • “Tear down” products to learn what’s inside
  • Program and use robots 
  • Program and control autonomous drones
  • Explore advanced manufacturing through field trips and team-based activities

Activities are guided by faculty and students in the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, and each student receives a certificate at the completion of the program.

Who can Attend?

High school students entering grades 9-12 are eligible to apply for the camp. Students should have strong science and mathematical ability, and an interest in a career in STEM.

We are especially interested in students from groups that are underrepresented in STEM professions. 


Tuition for the program is $300. Each student will receive a certificate at the completion of the program.
