EPIC- Engineering Possibilities in College - is a one-week summer camp at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo introducing campers to the varied fields of engineering through hands-on labs taught by university professors and industry professionals. EPIC campers see "Learn by Doing" in action as they participate in labs where they design, build and test their own projects! Campers build rockets, create Android phone apps, develop a solar car, and learn about computer security. EPIC shares the College of Engineering’s mission to “educate students for careers of service, leadership, and distinction in engineering or other fields by using a Learn by Doing hands-on approach.”

Students can apply to one of the four sessions based on their current grade level. Each session accommodates 160 participants. Acceptance into EPIC is based on the essay written, interest to learn about engineering, and indication student has applied themselves to their studies based on g.p.a, classes taken, and extracurricular activities. The EPIC program does its best to determine which students will gain the most from the program.
