• SUBJECT: The Joy of Coding, June 22 - August 3 online course by the University of Michigan




    Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Michigan is excited to be offering an online course that high school students can participate in this summer, The Joy Of Coding, which takes place June 22, 2022 - August 3, 2022. 


    This is our second year offering this course. The Joy of Coding online course has been specially created for anyone who wants to experience first-hand the power and thrill of coding computers to do amazing things. Created with high school students in mind, it is a great way for anyone to step into the wondrous world of coding. You’ll learn by doing and experience how coding powers apps such as Snapchat and TikTok. 


    No prior coding experience is required! Anyone who wants to learn is welcome. Students who are able to commit 4-6 hours a week and chip away at the material daily will succeed.

    Students will: 

    • Have weekly asynchronous coding lectures/assignments using an interactive textbook

    • Learn to code at their own pace with support from Michigan ECE faculty and students 

      • No scheduled lectures 

    • Have our commitment to help you get unstuck when learning to code 

      • Everyone gets stuck somewhere, at some point!

    • Receive a certificate of accomplishment to bolster your college applications


    Please visit our website for further information including math prerequisites, cost ($99  + tax), important dates, and more! For priority consideration, please submit an application by May 25, 2022! Need-based financial aid is available.
