Program Overview

Program Overview

Accelerated Engineering Readiness Opportunity

In partnership with Nissan, Lipscomb University is offering a weeklong summer program designed to prepare aspiring engineering students for college-level coursework. Open to both students and teachers, AERO (Accelerated Engineering Readiness Opportunity) takes a holistic approach by training recent high school graduates in crucial math and engineering skills while also developing public school teachers who are able to adequately prepare high school students for STEM degrees through project-based lessons. 

Whether you're a student or teacher, you'll have hands-on opportunities to learn from both industry professionals and Lipscomb College of Engineering and Math faculty members. Build a valuable portfolio of skills and connect with others in the profession along the way.
