Engineering Experiences at the Rowan University Henry M. Rowan College of Engineering

Middle and high School field trips to the Henry M. Rowan College of Engineering can be scheduled by clicking here.  We are currently offering these visits on Tuesdays and Thursdays during Rowan's academic semesters.  Please check the availability calendar prior to submitting the reservation request form.  If you experience difficulties with the above link, please email engineering@rowan.edu

An engineering overview, building tour and a hands-on engineering project led by engineering students are typically included in the engineering experience at the Henry M. Rowan College of Engineering but a customized itinerary can created based upon the school's need and availability. Thanks to the generosity of Henry M. Rowan College of Engineering Administration, fees are NOT charged for this experience however a max of 40 students can be accommodated.  Please note, transportation to and from the Henry M. Rowan College of Engineering and lunch are not provided.  

After-School Program at the Henry M. Rowan College of Engineering

Engineering students at the Henry M. Rowan College of Engineering understand kids' curiosity and drive to explore. They know young minds become engaged in the learning process by doing projects versus reading about a project.  Therefore, COE students have developed an after school program for middle school students.  Please click here to find out more.

Engineers Without Borders (EWB)

Outreach activities have extended beyond the region, and have encompassed the national and global community. Engineers Without Borders has helped communities around the world obtain clean water, treat waste water, produce energy, improve shelter, and develop sustainable industries. ewb@rowan.edu

Project Lead the Way (PLTW)

Rowan University is the State of New Jersey Affiliates to Project Lead The Way (PLTW). PLTW is geared towards inspiring middle school and high school students to pursue a career in engineering and technology. Project Lead the Way partners with higher educational institutions to promote pre-engineering courses in the nation's high schools, and provides an integrated math, science, and technology curriculum in the middle schools. More information can be found at www.pltw.org.

Summer Workshops at the Henry M. Rowan College of Engineering

Attracting Women into Engineering (AWE)

Attracting Women into Engineering (AWE) is designed to introduce middle school girls entering the 7th and 8th grades to the field of engineering. Participants in the highly competitive workshops will interact with faculty members and undergraduate students via hands-on experiments in the various fields of engineering. The goal of AWE is to provide middle school girls with opportunities to explore multiple engineering disciplines while reinforcing the need for them to stay focused on their science and math studies.  www.rowan.edu/awe

Boys' Engineering, Science and Technology (BEST) Workshop

The BEST workshop is designed to introduce middle school boys entering the 7th and 8th grades to the field of engineering. Participants will interact with faculty members and undergraduate students via hands-on experiments in the various fields of engineering. The goal of BEST is to provide middle school boys with opportunities to explore multiple engineering disciplines while reinforcing the need for them to stay focused on their science and math studies.  www.rowan.edu/best

Rowan's Introduction for Students to Engineering (RISE)

Rowan's Introduction for Students to Engineering (RISE) is a summer workshop that features laboratory clinics, where students can participate in engineering activities, as well as campus tours and a chance to meet College of Engineering professors and students. High School students  may work with chocolate, Hydrogel, Arduinos, and bottle rockets during several hands-on engineering workshops and clinics.  www.rowan.edu/rise

RISER Summer Program for High School Students

Research Immersion in Biomedical Science and Engineering at Rowan (RISER) Summer Program for High School Students (2019 summer dates TBD).  This free non-residential program provides immersive hands-on research opportunities in cutting edge research in biomedical science and engineering.  Nominations are accepted only from New Jersey high school teachers.  Information regarding the 2019 program will be available in January 2019.
