Student Introduction to Engineering
Website and/or Calendar Links
SITE is a three-day, interactive and informational program offered to high school seniors.
Invitations are distributed in February to admitted applicants of the College of Engineering. This is a unique opportunity to explore and experience life as an engineering student here in Urbana-Champaign.
SITE promises no sugarcoating and no sales pitch. From day one, they show you everything Illinois has to offer to your education, social circles, and personal growth. Be curious with them and they will be candid with you.
- Department Tours: Tour your preferred engineering departments and hear from both faculty and students.
- Design contests: Participate in various team challenges with fellow participants as a first step in your engineering career.
- Dinner banquet: Attend a dinner banquet with College Deans and Department head advisors in a semi-formal but relaxed setting.
- Engineering in action: Explore many of the College of Engineering's resources available to its students.
- Panel discussions: Engage in exclusive Q&A sessions with engineering students about their research, internship, and study abroad experiences.
- Student life: Spend two evenings on campus and sample a taste of the social scene: one night at a campus hotel and the other with a student host.
High school participants and UIUC volunteers can visit the SITE @ UIUC web page to find more information.
