TryEngineering Summer Institute

An exciting ten day, on-campus engineering camp for high school students held at three premier universities across the United States in 2019.

Vaughn College of Aeronautics and Technology

Specialized Aeronautics and Engineering College in New York

A private, specialized aeronautics and engineering college, Vaughn College of Aeronautics and Technology is located adjacent to LaGuardia Airport in East Elmhurst, Queens, New York. Our engineering and technology classes are led by an experienced and passionate faculty in a newly renovated, state-of-the-art campus. TryEngineering Summer Institute engineering camp students enjoy access to Vaughn's flight simulator, as well as the opportunity to get an up close look at aeronautics engineering at LaGuardia. It's a perfect location for our NY engineering school or summer camp.

Plus, the campus' proximity to New York City attractions makes Vaughn an exciting destination for Summer Institute students.  It's the engineering school NY loves!

Where have students gone on off-campus field trips in past summers? 

LaGuardia Airport

Behind the scenes tour of LaGuardia Airport. The airport, which has two new terminals in operation, is in the process of a multi-billion-dollar redevelopment initiative designed to transform the facility into an ultra-modern transportation hub for passengers. Completing a massive construction program while keeping this busy metropolitan airport operating involves intricate planning and execution. Students saw and got to meet first-hand from airport engineers what it takes to manage and operate the airport as well as the construction, tour some of the facilities and even visited the ramp to see the aircraft landing and taking-off.  

Behind the scenes tour of Con Edison's Main Power Plant in Manhattan. The students got to go inside the highly secure facility, meet the engineers, talk about their jobs, and see what it takes to power the greatest city on earth!

Future trips will be posted here as they are confirmed!
