ChemE Camp: A Two-Day Workshop to Increase Student Preparedness for Chemical Engineering Curricula

Bradley Cicciarelli, Eric Sherer, Adam Melvin

Abstract


 A two-day workshop was designed to help rising chemical engineering sophomores prepare for the upcoming school year, curriculum, and internship opportunities. Activities include team-building exercises, presentations from faculty about upcoming classes, talks from local industry partners, interview and resume workshops, and discussions with upperclassmen. Surveys taken before and after the "camp" show an increase in student ratings of knowledge of the curriculum, comfort interacting with faculty, confidence in the major, and familiarity with internship opportunities.
