Marian University has added Biomedical, Chemical, Civil, Computer, Mechanical, and Physics Engineering to their curriculum, with a new multi-million dollar facility (the E. S. Witchger Engineering Building) to open in 2023. This building is 70,000 square feet including robust “maker spaces” and 13 engineering labs.
From the Marian University website, 2023: “Marian University's E. S. Witchger School of Engineering will be hosting a week-long residential summer camp for rising junior and
senior high school students. Students will hear from guest speakers in the field, visit engineering companies and site tours, receive design engineering instruction, and much more!
“This is an intensive engineering camp experience for students intended to expose campers to the field of engineering. Students will receive didactic classroom training in engineering concepts as well as participate in engineering design experiences. Campers will receive a series of design challenges and work in teams to solve these challenges throughout the week. Students will practice lean engineering concepts to ideate and innovate solutions to real-world challenges. Students will then work together to design, develop and fabricate solutions.
“Additionally, students will hear from guest speakers and prominent engineers in the field as well as tour several Indianapolis engineering companies to see engineering-in-action and learn how engineers solve practical problems daily.”
