clubEngineering Club

Whitacre College of Engineering Junior Engineering Clubs are provided at no cost to participating schools and allow 5th grade students to explore different fields of engineering, engage in real world, hands-on STEM activities, receive mentoring, and experience Texas Tech University culture.

Clubs meet after school once a week to educate and cultivate an interest in STEM education. Their time is focused on engineering fields of study and career pathways. Everything culminates in a student STEM Expo, allowing club members to showcase what they have learned throughout their time as a junior engineer.

We are excited to welcome you to the Texas Tech Whitacre College of Engineering! Our summer camp options provide you with a week-long experience, bringing you firsthand insight into the world of engineering and Texas Tech University. Campers are introduced to engineering concepts and gain experience with classroom lectures, hands-on group projects, and campus life. Each day is structured as a current engineering student. Campus resources such as admission requirements, financial aid, student support and many more are highlighted throughout the week. Campers reside in a residence hall on campus to bring the campus experience full-circle.
