  • Independence: Students will be asked to identify their own learning goal for the course and share with instructors to help them achieve it.

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 11. The courses provide an overview of Engineering in a university setting, and caters to Canadian high school students. 

QSEA is available in both one-week or two-week versions as there are two different courses to choose from within July and August of 2022 for a total of 6 weeks. 

Here is a breakdown of the courses:

QSEA Senior - Virtual Course A: Are you interested in discovering what engineering is all about? Our free QSEA senior virtual program provides an exciting sneak peek into first-year engineering programs at Queen’s University. No experience necessary! Course A offers a broad scope of engineering disciplines, including some you may already know and some you may not have heard of yet! In this course, students will cover the major disciplines of chemical, mechanical,
electrical, computing, mining, and geological engineering in addition to Queen’s University’s unique mechatronics, mathematics and engineering, engineering physics and engineering chemistry disciplines! Courses are offered asynchronously at your own pace, with synchronous check-in points to connect with engineering students.
Our team will guide you through the engineering design process, using a variety of technology and tools used in our diverse workshops. To get the full QSEAO experience, our program will also showcase virtual tours through our
state-of-the-art facilities, lab demos, design teams, and a glimpse into student life at Queen’s! Step into first year engineering with insight into what inspires you here at Queen’s University! 

QSEA Senior - Virtual Course B: Are you looking to gain a more in-depth knowledge into the creative world
of engineering? Join us for our free, focused Course B. No experience needed! This course will facilitate bridging the gap between your current knowledge and interests, and first year engineering resources, using a more in-depth
approach. Course B workshops will instruct on Micro: bit coding, breadboarding, artificial intelligence, and so much more. This course will also showcase virtual tours through our state-of-the-art facilities, lab demos, and presentations by Queen’s faculty, students, and design teams to showcase what Queen’s Engineering has to offer you! Step into first year engineering with the foundational knowledge to drive your interests and challenge your skills!

QSEA Intermediate - Virtual Course A: In the Engineering at Queen's Course A, students will be introduced to various engineering disciplines offered at Queen's University, through the lens of the medical field. Students will learn the fundamentals of an engineering design process in biomedical applications, through different engineering disciplines such as electrical, mechanical, and chemical. Throughout the week, participants will asynchronously tackle open ended design problems that require medical solutions that help people live a healthier life. For example, students will explore innovative treatment strategies for bone and joint disorders, injuries, and the related problems. Daily synchronous touch points with current Queen's undergraduate students offer the opportunity to answer any questions that may arise throughout the week. In addition to designing and creating various projects, participants will be exposed to a variety of educational technologies including: Microcontrollers (micro:bits), CoSpaces, Artificial Intelligence (machine learning), TinkerCAD & various coding languages (block, python). The Engineering at Queen's Course A will lay the foundation for generations of engineers to come! 

QSEA Intermediate - Virtual Course B: In the Engineering at Queen's Course B, students will be introduced to various engineering disciplines offered at Queen's University, through the lens of sustainable cities of tomorrow If you could design a better city, where would you begin? Students in this course will explore common problems that today's cities face and work towards designing innovative and creative solutions. Through a series of daily activities, participants will learn more about the fundamentals of civil, computer, mechatronics, mining, and geological engineering in a safe and focused way. Daily synchronous touch points with current Queen's undergraduate students offer the opportunity to
answer any questions that may arise throughout the week. In addition to designing and creating various projects, participants will be exposed to a variety of educational technologies including: Microcontrollers (micro:bits), Scratch, CoSpaces, Artificial Intelligence (machine learning), TinkerCAD & various coding languages (block, python). The Engineering at Queen's Course B will lay the foundation for generations of engineers to come!
