What Students Say

All the students in my course had access to very high-end 3D scanning and printing machines that we don't have on campus at UC. The teaching was also very hands on and personal. Even with a 4-week course I got to know my professor and teaching assistants much better than I have ever known any professors or TAs at UC, even with a similar class size.

After initially feeling overwhelmed by what we had to accomplish, building the actual satellite/rocket was a very cool hands-on, interactive experience.
