ESIP is an early entry program designed for first-time General Engineering majors in the College of Engineering and Science (CES). The program allows freshmen to get a head start on introductory engineering courses and to explore engineering careers while networking with SC industry representatives, CES faculty, graduate students and other undergraduates.
Any first-time General Engineering major may participate, but we specifically encourage those who have earned college credit in math, chemistry or physics through Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate Programs or dual enrollment.
Students may choose from several online or on campus engineering or general education courses that are taught during the second summer session.
General Engineering students who participate in ESIP have several advantages. They will:
