Quinnipiac University Industrial Engineering
Online Summer Camp: July 9–25, 2018
Quinnipiac University’s Industrial Engineering program invites high school students who are interested in learning and implementing engineering solutions to attend an online summer camp that will introduce participants to a simulation computer program called FlexSim in an exclusively online environment through instructions and activities. Successful participants will each receive a certificate, and the top three students will receive awards.
Students who take part in the online summer camp will learn to:
- Solve engineering problems in a 3D setting
- Understand and implement basic statistics concepts
- Implement a FlexSim simulation program for managing a number of different environments
- Experience FlexSim’s fun Zombie game module
During the 16-day online camp, students will have access to FlexSim and take part in a unique simulation program.
This program has 11 modules, including the Zombie game. The simulations cover several industry types, including service, manufacturing and health care.
Students will experience the predictive power of simulation through experimentation. Upon completion, they will be able to identify efficiencies, understand bottlenecks and manage various industrial work environments. As part of the camp experience, students will:
- Create 3D charts and graphs
- Derive statistical reports
- Create different scenarios by choosing different model parameters
An authorization code will be send to you upon your acceptance to the Camp if you send the required documents (listed below) for the Camp via email to [email protected]. You won’t be allowed to register to the Camp without an authorization code.
Registration Deadline: June 15
