Pathways in Engineering & Computers
Students that pursue engineering find themselves immersed in creativity, science, technology, and problem-solving. Engineering demands a solid foundation in science, math, engineering technology, and computing. Prospective engineers can foresee themselves inventing, designing, analyzing, building and testing machines (or computational structures), complex systems, algorithms and data structures, structures and materials to fulfill functional objectives and requirements while considering the limitations imposed by practicality, regulation, safety and cost.

MODELING AND PROCESSING DATA
THE GPA DIFFERENCE
How will GPA support my pursuit for this pathway?
These growth industries are essential to our global futures. We now stand at the precipice of many next-generation innovations, from making self-driving cars safer on the roads, to using AI to detect Alzheimer’s and other disorders, to developing systems for more sustainable farming. We work with students to create projects that are innovative and solvent.
COLLEGES & PROGRAMS
Where should I study?
GPA alumni earned acceptance to Vagelos Integrated Program in Energy Research at UPenn, Viterbi at USC, and Computational Media at Georgia Tech. First, everyone should know these are the most competitive programs in higher education, so you must be fully prepared to even apply. Second, we work with each student have them compete with the students from private boarding schools.
University of Pennsylvania, home to several top 10 engineering programs in the country.
