The College of Engineering and Science at the University of Detroit Mercy has a long history of serving students from the metro Detroit area in its pre-college programs. Our oldest program started in 1982 through a partnership with the Detroit Area Pre-College Engineering Program (DAPCEP).
University of Detroit Mercy offers a variety of summer programs that allow participants to explore science, technology, engineering and math through the most current methods of innovation with fun, hands-on, and engaging activities that will challenge and delight young minds for a summer filled with vision and imagination!
DAPCEP Programs at UDM
Five week Saturday enrichment classes in the fall and spring for students in the 4th through 12th grades focusing on engineering, math, computers and science.
Technology Discovery Day (TDD)
Fall on-campus event for area high school teachers and students. Engineering and science displays and science-based competitions are among the highlights.
FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) is a national organization whose mission is to excite high school students about engineering and technology through its national robotics competition. Since 1997, UDM College of Engineering & Science has sponsored and mentored a FIRST team. In 2006, we reunited with our first FIRST team at University of Detroit Jesuit High School, Detroit.
