Bridge Programs

We are excited to offer two bridge programs to incoming first-year engineering students prior to the beginning of the fall semester. The UTOP: Engineering Summer Experience and Engineering FIT programs are excellent opportunities to begin your college experience early, start with a solid engineering math foundation, get acclimated to campus early, and build a support system of peers and staff across campus. Both programs will benefit students who are starting at math levels 1-3.
