Information about CEED’s Freshman Summer Bridge Program

Freshman Summer Bridge is a two-week, residential summer program for incoming freshmen students, who are majoring in engineering or computer science. Summer Bridge provides advanced preparation and early exposure to Fall quarter math, chemistry, and computer science curricula. Collaborative learning techniques and community-building activities are integral processes to both day and evening programs. The primary purpose of Summer Bridge is to jump-start the “community building and bonding” process early, and create a built-in expectation of academic excellence to continue throughout the first year. These principles of excellence are reinforced by intensive classroom instruction and collaborative learning workshops that promote group study as well as individual and team problem-solving.
