Attention High School STEM All-Stars!

I’m delighted to share an exciting once-in-a-lifetime educational enrichment experience in engineering and technology, aimed at students currently in 10th or 11th grade who reside in Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, or Virginia.


Lehigh University’s Summer Engineering Institute (SEI) is a four-week summer residential program of intensive classroom study and research for exceptionally talented, rising high school juniors and seniors attending public, non-public, charter, cyber, or home secondary schools. Hosted by students, faculty, and staff of Lehigh’s P.C. Rossin College of Engineering and Applied Science, SEI is a chance for talented young minds to engage deeply in real-world, hands-on projects across a diverse set of fields, including energy, healthcare and bioengineering, nanotechnology, cybersecurity, civil infrastructure and environmental sustainability, advanced manufacturing and 3D printing, and more.

Borne out of the highly-successful Pennsylvania Governor’s School for Engineering and Technology, the core of SEI is a cooperative living and learning environment where participants are encouraged to work in teams and solve complex problems, in the classroom and in the lab, using sophisticated technology and facilities available here at Lehigh.

In this inaugural year of SEI, we’re offering it at no cost to participants.┬áCapable and deserving students who fit the criteria can learn more about the program or begin the application process by visiting lehigh.edu/sei.

The deadline for all applications is March 8, 2016 at 1 p.m. Eastern. All materials must be submitted before that time for applications to be considered; please note that the entire application process is to be conducted online, unless extenuating circumstances and/or undue hardship can be proved. This includes the submission of required information such as student-written essays, science and math teacher reference statements, and materials from guidance counselors such as scanned/uploaded transcripts and report cards.

Given the unique nature of the program, we expect demand to be strong and the admission process to be highly competitive, so we wish the best of luck to all students interested in pursuing this opportunity. If you have additional questions about the program, SEI Program Office contact information is available via the site as well.

Warm regards,
