Summer 2024 | July 8 – August 9 (Tentative dates)

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.

Pace Objectives

  • Prepare students for the Morgan State University’s Placement Test.
  • Provide students with accelerated learning of pre-calculus in order to become calculus ready.
  • Provide the students the opportunity to conduct and analyze experiments.
  • Improve students’ communication skills, both written and oral.
  • Develop appropriate study skills, strategies, and habits for success in an engineering major.
  • Develop students’ higher order thinking skills (e.g. analysis, synthesis and evaluation).
  • Develop students’ ability to draw reasonable inferences from observation.
  • Develop students’ ability to work in a team environment.


  • Requirements for the 2024 PACE cohort will be listed in the second quarter of the 2024 calendar year.
