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 24–July 15) with
  • a three-week program from Session 2 (July 16–August 5)

to create a six-week dual program.

Note: You may also combine the non-credit program Fabricating the Future: Robotics and Artificial Intelligence with a three-week program from Session 2 to create a five-week dual program (July 1–August 5).
