Camp BUILD

Civil engineers and environmental engineers are society's problem solvers. Do you want to make a difference? Consider a career in civil or environmental engineering!

Overview

Camp BUILD will be offered as a mini-camp this fall. It is designed for high school juniors and seniors. Students are given the opportunity to explore the civil and environmental engineering program at Texas A&M and experience Aggie culture!

Some of the camp activities:

  • Work on fun design projects, guided by our engineering faculty and students.
  • Learn how engineers use the engineering design process.
  • Tour department facilities and labs like our structures and materials testing facility and the Texas A&M Transportation Institute.
  • Enjoy recreation: Scheduled opportunities on-campus as well as off-campus. Stay in a dorm: Dorm life is part of the Aggie experience!
  • Learn about the A&M admissions process: Students and parents will receive information about Texas A&M admissions as well as financial aid opportunities.

Eligibility

To be eligible for Camp BUILD, students must be an upcoming junior or senior in high school. Females and minorities (groups that are underrepresented in the engineering field) are encouraged to apply.

Program Costs

The camp fee is $125, which includes all meals and housing at the Texas A&M University Hotel and Conference Center on campus. Do NOT send money when applying to the program. Campers will be asked to pay the fee once they have been accepted into the program. A limited number of partial scholarships are available for students who qualify, which will lower the camp fee to $75. For those seeking a scholarship, please complete the Scholarship Request Form.

Participants will be responsible for transportation arrangements and any costs associated with transportation to and from the camp. Transportation to camp activities will be provided by the Camp BUILD staff.
