Elementary General Engineering & Design
The Elementary General Engineering and Design (EGED) is a program that has been offered to high schoolers to engage with engineering at the university level since Fall 2010. Over many years, the program has transformed quite a lot through feedback from the students and their school.
Over longest running partner school, the Urban Assembly Institute of Math and Science for Young Women (UAI), has been with the program since Fall 2011, pausing during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Just like our college classes, students in the EGED program also use our Course Website at https://eg.poly.edu.
