Rowan's Introduction for Students to Engineering (RISE)

Registration for RISE 2019 begins February 2019

Tenative dates for RISE are July 9, 10 and 11, 2019

Rowan's Introduction for Students to Engineering (RISE) is a three-day, non-residential workshop experience that features laboratory clinics, exciting engineering activities, campus & industry tours, and mentoring by Henry M. Rowan College of Engineering professors and students. Students from high schools throughout the region may work with chocolate, polymers, arduinos, concrete, wind turbines, bottle rockets, air cannons or music engineering during the hands-on engineering RISE workshop. In addition, a tour of PSEG and the South Jersey Technical Park, including a virtual reality demo, is typically included in the RISE workshop.

2019 will be the 13th year that the Henry M. Rowan College of Engineering will offer the RISE workshop. RISE has continued to cultivate interested high schoolers' enthusiasm for engineering through an applied approach to engineering, exposure to the diverse paths an engineer can take and the impact engineers will have in shaping the future.

RISE 2018 Program Highlights

  • Biomedical Engineering – Fluid Dynamics and disease
  • Chemical Engineering - Hydrogels and Cross linking reactions
  • Civil/Environmental Engineering - Concrete Canoes
  • Electrical and Computer Engineering – Music Engineering and Gaming Development
  • Materials Engineering – Understanding Lung functionality
  • Mechanical Engineering – Projectile analysis and rockets
  • Additional Events – Tours of the Engineering Buildings, Rocket Launch, Science of ice cream, and a Robotic Arm demonstration.
  • Trips – PSEG tour, South Jersey Tech Park/VR, Liberty Virtual Reality, Holly Pointe Dormitory/Dining Hall

The cost of the 2018 three-day, non-residential program was $300, which included lunch and snacks. Every effort will be made to maintian that cost in 2019.  The deadline to apply to RISE 2019 will be around May 1, 2019.
