OU Engineering Days

Engineering Days

Join us for a summer day camp series where rising high school juniors and seniors (those graduating in 2025 or 2026) explore and discover OU Engineering through one-day, in-depth applications in exciting engineering disciplines.


 Registration Dates for 2024:

Registration for Summer 2024 has closed. We look forward to having you in June 2025!

Each Engineering Day will run from 8:30AM - 4:30PM approximately. 

Check-in will begin at 8:15AM and lunch will be provided for students.

The cost of attendance is $25 per day.

*Space is limited to 50 students per Engineering Day. Once an event has reached capacity, it will no longer be listed in the application.

Frequently Asked Questions

OU Engineering Days are designed for rising high school juniors and seniors (graduating in 2025 or 2026). There are no academic requirements before the camp, so any student in the grade bracket should be able to participate in the activities!

Campers should use the parking permit provided in their acceptance packet to park on campus for Engineering Days. This permit will only be needed for camps that happen during the week!

If you need another permit, please email us at

Engineering Days costs $25 per session to help cover costs of lunch, supplies and materials, and more. This fee is non-refundable.

We want Engineering Days to be accessible to all students. Look out for the scholarship application after you apply.


Overview of Programs and Past Experiences

Students will design, build, and test a miniature off-road vehicle to carry an egg passenger over different obstacles.  Then, after a crash course on airplane physics, students will design, build, and fly their airplanes cooperatively in a super-sized game of battleship.
