UNR Renewable Energy Program

Renewable energy is an important topic that cuts across academic disciplines. The University offers two programs in renewable energy, open to students in all fields, that are designed to complement their chosen field of study by exposing them to crucial technical, economic and social issues relevant to renewable energy.?

Computer Science Camp at UNR

The Computer Science Camp will introduce students to the concepts, tools, and techniques of computer graphics for animated films, simulations, and video games, including a tour of our robotics lab.

Young Women in Engineering Camp at UNR

For Young Women Only! An introduction to engineering including lessons, hands-on activities, and mentoring from professional female engineers, university faculty, alumni, and current engineering students.

MESA First Generation Engineering Camp at UNR

This is a free introductory camp, open only to students who will be the first person in their immediate family to attend college. Entry is competitive and the deadline to apply is May 8th, 2016.

Manufacturing Engineering Camp at UNR

This summer camp will introduce basic knowledge of manufacturing engineering, including metrology, heat treatment, metal forming, metal machining, casting, CNC and more. Campers will get a chance to operate machines such as metrology equipment, manual lathes, mills, CNC mills and CNC lathes.

Introduction to Engineering Summer Camp at UNR

This camp introduces students to the various engineering disciplines through fun, age-appropriate activities such as building bottle rockets, designing concrete canoes and learning about digital gaming. Field trips and campus tours introduce students to some of Northern Nevada’s engineering landmarks. Camp sessions are led by university faculty and graduate students.

Autonomous Systems and Robotics Summer Camp at UNR

This program is for students to expand their knowledge and awareness of the aviation and aerospace industry. Students will encounter scientific principles such as lift, thrust, drag, and propulsion. The use of UAS simulators will expose campers to new technologies and the use of other technological devices in the camp will prepare them for advancing technologies in the general workforce.

This camp will be a residential camp in which students will be required to stay in University of Nevada, Reno dorms from 8am June 2oth – 3pm June 24th. The cost for this camp will be $750 per student and is all inclusive.

The STEM Academy at Galena High School

The STEM Academy at Galena High School encompasses fields of study in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Students are enrolled in a 4-year course sequence that follows a nationally-recognized curriculum, providing them with challenging activity-, project-, problem-based learning with meaningful assessments. The sequence includes two foundation courses designed for 9th-10th graders, followed by a core specialization course (e.g. Civil Engineering and Architecture, Computer Integrated Manufacturing), and ends with a capstone course whereby students work in teams to design and develop an original solution to a valid open-ended technical problem by applying the engineering design process.

UNR Undergraduate Research Program

Being involved in research, scholarship and creative activity outside of the classroom not only offers a unique way to explore your interests, but will help prepare you for the highly competitive job market. Undergraduate students’ exposure to these opportunities is generally very limited. Having research experience will give you an edge in your career field or in your pursuit of a graduate degree, an option you may not have even considered before.
Doing research doesn’t only mean working in a lab, it can be anything from a photographic analysis of a changing landscape over time to studying salt-loving plants to improve crop production in marginal lands. Whether your interests are in the arts, sciences, journalism, education or another field, our office is here to help you expand your experience while at the University.
