New Program: SHAPE

Columbia Engineering introduces Summer High School Academic Program for Engineers (SHAPE), a selective summer program for rising high school sophomores, juniors,  and seniors.

Our goal is to equip today’s young scholars with the necessary skills to become tomorrow’s engineering leaders.

SHAPE is for current high school students, who are expected to excel academically and to have demonstrated STEM interest. 

SHAPE will offer robotics and computer science courses, electives, labs, college preparation workshops, and field trips.
