Three-week courses

Students who enroll in three-week programs focus intensely on one course for credit (see below) and explore related careers. You can expect to be in class in the morning and afternoon and, in some cases, in the evening.

Increasingly, students are combining:

  • a three-week program from Session 1 (June 23–July 14) with
  • a three-week program from Session 2 (July 15–August 4)

to create a six-week dual program.

Note: You may also combine the non-credit program Fabricating the Future: Robotics and Programming with a three-week program from Session 2 to create a five-week dual program (June 30–August 4).
