NovaEdge Diversity in Engineering – Virtual Summer Program



Due to the Coronavirus and the guidelines mandated, our NovaEdge summer program will be held online.


NovaEdge Diversity in Engineering – Virtual Summer Program is a five day, program that introduces a diverse population of students from different ethnic and social backgrounds to the traditional fields of engineering, including Chemical, Civil and Environmental, Computer and Electrical, and Mechanical Engineering. Students also will be introduced to unique aspects of Villanova’s College of Engineering, which include Sustainable Engineering and Engineering Entrepreneurship. Lectures and hands-on laboratory experiences will involve at home experiments which are taught by Villanova engineering faculty, and daily guest speakers who will provide academic and industry instruction.  

In addition to this introduction to engineering, the NovaEdge - virtual summer program includes a presentation on the college admissions process.
