IDEAs Shadowing – For High School Students

The IDEAs Shadowing program provides high school students who are interested in engineering with an opportunity to explore engineering studies and college life. Students shadow a selected engineering freshman or sophomore to attend classes, visit engineering building, tour the campus, meet student design teams, talk to engineering faculty advisors, tour the UA campus and have lunch in the dining hall.

Student requests will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Shadowing placements are dependent upon the availability of college students and completion of application packages.
