Governor's Honors Program Engineering Criteria

The Governor's Honors Program (GHP) Engineering program uses design, equipment, and software to conceptualize, create, analyze, and market effective solutions to engineering problems. Finalists are selected in either Design, Mechatronics, or Software and are introduced to professional practices in all three subareas at the beginning of the summer. During the first week, each instructor teaches the fundamentals of his/her discipline to rotating groups. In the second week, students "specialize" in the area for which they interviewed, learning a more focused set of skills and techniques. Students devote the remaining two weeks to group projects, working in small teams to prototype a new invention. Teams consist of one student from each subarea (Design, Mechanical/Mechatronics, Software), allowing students to be experts in their area as they work toward a mutual goal.

GHP Design involves planning and developing a project through industrial or graphic design using a variety of methods, including CAD and 3D modeling.

GHP Mechatronics involves planning and developing a project through mechanical and electrical engineering.

GHP Software Engineering involves planning and developing a project through computer software using a variety of software packages.
