PEER/WISE Experience


What is the PEER/WISE Experience?

Clemson’s PEER/WISE Experience (PWE) program offers a glimpse of what your freshman year will be like. This three week, optional introductory program is a great way to meet other students in your major while taking introductory classes in General Engineering, Chemistry, Physics, and Calculus. In addition, you’ll earn 3 hours of college credit.

When is this program? 

Summer 2022: July 10th ‐ July 29th 

What will I be doing?

Students will have the chance to meet Clemson undergraduate/graduate students majoring in Science, Mathematics, or Engineering (STEM). They will tour different industries in the area to learn about possible areas for internships. They will also complete courses that will prepare them for their freshmen year in engineering or computer science. 

Why should I participate?

Students who have participated in the program say that it gives you a jumpstart on your college career. Freshman year can bring many changes, and this program helps make the transition easier. It gives you a good foundation and provides meaningful connections that can last a lifetime. Check out the info session to hear from some of our PWE alumni!
