Want to develop leadership skills, complete a design project, or understand how Google Maps works? If you’re interested in technology, business, architecture, science, engineering, or computers, Illinois Tech’s Pre-College Summer Programs offer dozens of ways to experience these fields up close.

NoteBased on local and national guidelines around COVID-19, we have determined that some programs should be run online in Summer 2021. All changes are reflected on the program pages. Should the format of your program have changed, the total cost of the program will be reduced, and your deposit will be applied toward the new program cost. Deposits are fully refundable until May 15. Please reference the refund policy for more information.
