Engineering Pathways

Engineering Pathways

Engineering Pathways is an opportunity for Wolverine Pathways Scholars to explore engineering as a profession. 

Current 7th graders participate in a one-day experience. Scholars learn about the college experience and careers in engineering through tours of campus and local engineering companies.

Current 8th – 11th graders participate in a Multi-day program. Scholars learn to work in teams using math and science principles to solve problems with engineering concepts


Current Wolverine Pathways Scholars Free Summer 2021 Information Coming Soon!



Wolverine Pathways Scholars will receive an overview of Engineering concepts to give them a well rounded understanding of Engineering majors and professions. Relevant, challenging and grade-appropriate science and math concepts are introduced to assist students as they engage in project-based learning. 

We have a curriculum that changes year-to-year based on scholar and instructor feedback. Each year scholars can anticipate engaging in challenging projects that are specifically designed to impart essential skills that lead to success in the Engineering field. During summer 2020, students built robots and learned about mechanical engineering and solar energy conversion. They also learned about coding on an Arduino breadboard and created their own code!

At Engineering OnRamp, we recognize that success in the College of Engineering depends on students having a wide array of skills that go beyond math and science knowledge. EO101 is a curriculum developed by our staff to discuss both hard and soft skills that are necessary for academic, social and personal success and persistence in a competitive institution of higher education, like the University of Michigan. Topics include persistence, self-advocacy, finance, college admissions, emotional wellbeing, and much more! Specific topics are chosen based on program content, grade level and are included in all of our programs.

Alumni, Faculty, & Student Engagement
Throughout the program students will get a taste of their potential future with Michigan Engineering. Panel discussions with current undergraduate students, lectures from Faculty about their research, and presentations by Michigan Engineering Alumni about their careers in their field are built into the programming.


Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, our team is not yet able to make finalized decisions about the layout of our programs. Student safety is at the forefront of our priorities. If we are unable to host our programs in person, we will continue to provide virtual opportunities. Decisions will be made by March 2021.

This past summer we were able to host robust virtual programming with hands-on at home projects led by our instructors.
