The Pre-Freshman Accelerated Curriculum in Engineering (PACE) is a five-week comprehensive and intense summer program that gives students a significant advantage in both academic and personal development. It is a semi-immersive and totally remote online learning experience. Academically, the program reinforces fundamental subject matter that will increase the probability of a successful freshman year. Students will take Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, English and Computer Science. Also, students will take part in a research rotation and participate in a science fair. This program also allows students to become acclimated to college life, bond with professors, peers, tutors and instructors.
