High-school students explore engineering at UMinho’s “Summer on Campus” program

The 13th edition of “Summer on Campus” took place from July 20th to 23rd. In the School of Engineering, 14 high school students got to know the courses and scientific areas taught, in the activities “Engineering at the service of Biomedicine”, “Discover Engineering” and “Multi-Engineering”, accompanied by professors, monitors and researchers.

Summer on Campus takes place every year in July, in Braga and Guimarães, and intends to be a learning space for young high school students, but also to foster the spirit of teamwork, and bonds of friendship and mutual trust, through various educational, recreational, and cultural activities carried out in a university environment. Students also have the opportunity to get to know the cities of Braga and Guimarães, to socialize with colleagues from different geographic regions and to learn while having fun trying out the proposed scientific, cultural and sports actions.

With a program that covers different scientific areas, non-formal education activities are promoted in the areas of architecture, mathematics, chemistry, archeology, sociology, law, education, engineering and letters.
