ACCELERATE Bridge Program

ACADEMIC ENRICHMENT AND CAREER DEVELOPMENT FOR UNDERGRADUATES

LSAMP Lab

ACCELERATE Second-Year Bridge Program is an 8-week summer bridge program that will prepare rising second-year students for success in future academic and professional activities within and beyond the College of Engineering at OSU during the Summer 2022 semester. Academic Success Enrichment and Career Development programming will enhance student problem-solving skills, expose them to key concepts necessary for matriculation in their engineering program and provide them hands-on problem-solving experience through the team, project-based learning.


ACADEMIC SUCCESS ENRICHMENT

Tutoring

The Office of Diversity, Outreach & Inclusion will use its Student Academic Success programming expertise to support student participants as they take courses during the bridge program. Each student will enroll in a course (5 credit hours or less) that advances them in their engineering curriculum. Sample courses that may be added depending on course offerings during the 

Summer 2022 semester:

Math 1151

Math 1172

 

Phys 1250

Phys 1251

ME 2010

ECE 2060


CAREER DEVELOPMENT

Heart rate monitor lab

Each participating department/research center will devise project work for student participants. Career development programming will span 10 – 20 hours a week over the 8 week program. ACCELERATE faculty/research staff interacting with students will create a research problem or design challenge for program duration that will:

CONNECT OPEN-ENDED OR GOAL-ORIENTED PROJECT OBJECTIVES TO FOUNDATIONAL COURSEWORK IN STUDENTS’ MAJOR

• Projects should include introductions to key concepts for second-year major coursework (i.e. ECE 2020/2060; ME 2010/MSE 2010; CBE 2200; ISE 2400; ME 2020)

  • Train students on lab/workshop protocols (safety and equipment training) and maintaining and analyzing data

  • Train students on proper technical communication via regular reporting to supervising faculty/research staff and other teams on project goals, challenges, and progress

The program will culminate with a student presentation on the results of their work and experiences.

The College of Engineering Diversity, Outreach & Inclusion office encourages and supports all students from pre-college through undergraduate students. While the ACCELERATE program is open to all COE second-year students, programming and activities are designed to increase the number of historically excluded and underrepresented students (Women, Black/African American, Hispanic/Latinx and Indigenous) in engineering.
