What is Future Engineers?

Future Engineers is an immersive and exciting summer program in which students entering grades 10–12 spend two weeks designing and building a focused engineering project. The program is designed to encourage students’ passion for science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).

How can I participate?

Future Engineers is open to students who are in grades 9–11 in spring 2020 at any school in Qatar. Participants will be selected on a competitive basis according to applications and essays. Application essays are a major part of the application review process — spend some time to write an essay that explains why you are a good candidate. Applications must be submitted on or before 14 May 2020. Note: Students in grade 11 also are eligible for the Summer Engineering Academy. One application can be submitted for both programs.

How much does it cost?

Participants only need to pay a registration fee of QAR 100. This fee is paid after acceptance, but it is nonrefundable, even if a participant later decides not to participate in the program.

What should I expect?

Future Engineers is intended to introduce participants to renewable energy, the fundamentals of robotics, 3D CAD design and basic programming. Expect lots of hands-on work — and lots of fun! Participants will work in teams to develop their robots and compete in alliances to the challenge presented. Participants will give a presentation to judges to explain their developed robots.

Applications are closed. Thanks for your interest.
