The School of Engineering at Santa Clara University is pleased to announce its Spring Engineering Education Days (SEEDs).
The SEEDs Program will be held on the following Saturdays in April, from 10:00 AM-3:00 PM: April 6, 20 & 27
The SEEDs program provides Bay Area high school students with a unique opportunity to begin exploring engineering in hopes for fostering a future engineering study. Participants come to the Santa Clara University campus on three Saturdays in April to attend workshops providing an introduction to various engineering disciplines. Topics will include: Bioengineering, Civil Engineering, Computer Science & Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Web Design & Engineering. All workshops are introductory in nature and will include a mixture of lecture presentations and hands-on experiences facilitated by SCU professors. Participants will attend all workshops offered to be provided with a broad understanding of various engineering disciplines and careers. All workshops will be held in the School of Engineering facilities.
High school sophomore and junior level students who are interested in exploring engineering are eligible. Due to the program's introductory nature, students who are just beginning to consider engineering as a possible career and who have had little to no exposure to engineering topics are preferred. Women and other underrepresented groups in the field of engineering are highly encouraged to apply. Selected participants must attend ALL three sessions in April.
Please note that students will only be able to participate in one of our high school engineering programs (SEEDs or SES), as the academic content of both programs is very similar. Information on the Summer Engineering Seminar (SES) can be found here.
SEEDs is sponsored by the School of Engineering and local industry, which enables us to offer the program at no cost to students who are accepted into the program.
The application period for the SEEDs program is now closed. We will be unable to accept any late applications. SEEDs program applicants have been notified of their application status via email as of 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, February 28th. If you have not received your notification, please email Shane Wibeto at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In order to be considered for this program, applicants must submit a completed application packet consisting of the following:
- A completed online application.
- A 200-300 word essay, included on the online application form, addressing the following: Why are you an ideal candidate for the SEEDs program? How do you think the program will benefit you?
- The SEEDs Instructor Recommendation Form, completed by a high school math, science, computer or technology teacher. Please have the instructor seal the form in an envelope and sign across the seal. This form can be sent in by either the applicant or the instructor and must be postmarked by the application deadline.
Please mail your recommendation form to:

Each year we receive more applications than we can accommodate for the SEEDs program. For program consideration, applications will be evaluated based on academic performance (particularly in math and science), strength of instructor recommendation, and alignment of applicant with program goals. Applicants will be informed of their status via email by the evening of February 28, 2013.
