SHAPE - Summer High School Academic Program for Engineers

Columbia Engineering Summer High School Academic Program for Engineers (SHAPE) is a selective summer high school program for rising sophomores, juniors, and seniors. SHAPE is geared toward local students who have demonstrated an interest in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). Each 3-week session offers college-level courses in engineering, which are complemented by electives and workshops.

We were fortunate to have a successful remote program in 2021 and we are hopeful for an in-person program in 2022. Applications for Summer 2022 are available now. Visit the links below to find out more about important dates and information for this summer.
