"The engineer has been, and is, a maker of history."
                                                            — James Kip Finch




This is a program like no other! Geared specifically for high school students who are excelling in science courses, our ArcticENGINEER is a week-long enrichment program designed to expose participants to the dynamic world of Arctic Engineering.


Students will learn about the vast roles that engineers play in Arctic research, as well as the many reasons that they should be excited about their own possibilities in this growing field. 

Participants in this program will have opportunities to see some of the most interesting and advanced technology that is available in the industry, as well as work with experts in the field of Arctic engineering.


All participants in the program will be housed on campus for the duration of the week. Costs associated with meals, team building activities, focus tours and accommodations in university residences will be included.

Students must submit an application form, a school referral form and a personal essay highlighting their interests in Arctic engineering. Please email application forms and supporting documents to khong[at]
