The 6-week program as outlined in The Program page is our recommended program. The benefit of the extra 4 weeks allows the student to fully immerse themselves into the engineering process and tackle a more difficult project.
The 2-week program takes place concurrent to the 6-week program and is offered every week during the 6-week program. This 2-week program is intended to provide students with basic project building skills. Similar to the 6-week program, 2-week students will select which projects they want to build and document them individually. The key difference between the 6-week and 2-week program is the level of project complexity. 2-week students are given project options that are simpler to design.
2-week students will attend the same location as the 6-week program students and partake in all technical discussions with BSE staff, guest presentations, and other BSE activities. 2-week students will also have the opportunity to create their own page on the BSE website to showcase their project(s).
