On behalf of the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science at Queen’s University, we would like to introduce you to Connections: Queen's Summer Engineering Academy (QSEA) Intermediate. This non-credit experiential education program offers engineering focused courses for students ranging from Grade 7 - Grade 8. The courses provide an overview of Engineering in a university setting, and caters to Canadian high school students. QSEA intermediate is available in both one-week and multiple-week versions as there are multiple different courses to choose from within July and August of 2021 for a total of 6 weeks. 

Here is a breakdown of the courses:

Engineering 101 - In this course, students will be introduced to a variety of engineering disciplines. Students will apply their previous math and science knowledge to open-ended design problems that will require them to
use abstract and technical thinking skills as they progress through the engineering design cycle. Students will learn how to use basic design tools, soldering, and machine skills, along with laboratory skills through chemical experiments. Electrical engineering will be explored through computer programming, hardware design, and the physical construction of electronic circuits. Engineering 101 will showcase the diverse field that is engineering! Throughout this course, participants will explore the following engineering streams (disciplines) offered by the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science at Queen’s: Chemical, Electrical/Computer, Geological, Mechanical, Civil, and Mining 

Engineering Human Kinetics - During this course, participants will explore medical solutions that help people live fuller, more mobile lives through the investigation of innovative treatment strategies for bone and joint disorders, injuries, and related problems. In addition to practicing the safe handling of design tools, participants will be exposed to a variety of educational technologies including: 3D design and printers, laser cutters, and micro-controllers. Throughout this course, participants will explore the following engineering streams (disciplines) offered by the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science at Queen’s: Chemical, Electrical, and Mechanical. 

Engineering the Cities of Tomorrow - If you could build a better city, where would you begin? Participants in this course will explore common problems that today’s cities face; they will discuss the social issues around them, and investigate creative solutions. In addition to practising the safe handling of design tools, participants will be exposed to a variety of educational technologies including: 3D design and printers, laser cutters, microcontrollers, and robotics. Throughout this course, participants will explore the following engineering streams (disciplines) offered by the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science at Queen’s: Civil, Mechanical, Chemical, and Computer. 

For the QSEA intermediate programs, there is a residence option for students to stay for the entire week. These students are supervised full-time, stay in on-campus premium residence buildings (single air-conditioned room), includes three meals per day, and evening activities.  The QSEA intermediate program also has a commuter option for those students whom are from the Kingston area or have alternative accommodations.
