What is Future Engineers?
Future Engineers is an immersive and exciting summer program where students entering grades 9-12 spend one week designing and building a focused engineering project. The program is designed to encourage the youth and increase their passion for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM).
This year, the theme has been selected from real-world engineering challenges: robotics & transportation. Throughout this program, students will learn about robotics, mechanical design, programming, radio-controlled systems, and experimental measurements.
Students will compete in teams to design, build, program, and test an advanced robot that transport freight between various shipping locations. Using state-of-the-art components and engineering materials, participants will build a robot to complete the assigned mission. They will also present and defend their designs to a panel of robotics experts.

*Registration is now closed*
This is an exclusive program, so only the best applications will be accepted.
There will be two separate sessions of Future Engineers this summer! Session One will run 12-16 June, and Session Two will run 26-30 June. You may only sign up for a single session.
How much does it cost?
Thanks to the generous support from the Qatar National Research Fund (QNRF), participants only need to pay a registration fee of QAR 100. This fee is paid after acceptance and is nonrefundable.
What should I expect?
Future Engineers is intended to let participants learn the introduction to freight transportation, 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 defend their developed robots.
