SITE is a three-day, interactive and informational program offered to high school seniors.
Invitations are distributed in February to admitted applicants of the College of Engineering. This is a unique opportunity to explore and experience life as an engineering student here in Urbana-Champaign.
We promise no sugarcoating and no sales pitch. From day one, we show you everything Illinois has to offer to your education, social circles, and personal growth. Be curious with us and we will be candid with you.
This program is organized and run by members of Engineering Council, a student-run umbrella organization of UIUC's engineering societies.
Our goal is to aid high school seniors in one of the most important decisions of their careers.
The SITE committee is composed of UIUC students representing various years of schooling and engineering disciplines.
Each fall semester, we design a fresh schedule for the upcoming program in the spring.
Tour your preferred engineering departments and hear from both faculty and students.
Participate in various team challenges with fellow participants as a first step in your engineering career.
Attend a dinner banquet with College Deans and Department head advisors in a semi-formal but relaxed setting.
Explore many of the College of Engineering's resources available to its students.
