Experiential Learning Summer Program
About Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS)
Engineering and applied sciences at Harvard has a long and distinguished history at Harvard, beginning with the creation of the Lawrence Scientific School in 1847 (named for donor Abbott Lawrence). Through collaboration with researchers from all parts of Harvard, other universities, and industry, the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) brings discovery and innovation directly to bear on improving human life and society in the 21st century. In pursuing its aims, SEAS will grow, but will remain: a different kind of engineering program rooted in science, interdisciplinary in culture, and committed to embracing Harvard’s breadth and depth across the sciences and professions.

Curriculum: the format for the programming will be 3-4 hours of lecture per day, with 2-3 hours of related project based learning related to the lecture topics. The curriculum is designed to mirror the primary disciplines in the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. It will include topics in: computer science and robotics, bio-engineering, environmental engineering, nanotechnology and materials science. There will be a modest amount of advance reading related to these topics and assignments each day.
