The second annual Summer Engineering Institute, known affectionately as SENGI, was conducted on campus for two weeks in July and was designed to teach 32 high school students the joy, creativity, discovery, and complexity of engineering. The residential summer camp was a multi-faceted program that allowed students to explore how engineers envision creative and practical solutions to benefit the everyday lives of people and their communities. The institute also awarded a full SENGI scholarship (in concert with the Massachusetts Department of Transportation) for one inner city high school student from Boston. The two co-directors of the SENGI camp were college lecturer Bernd F. Schliemann and Paula Sturdevant Rees, who is the director of the College of Engineering Diversity Programs Office (DPO). They were assisted by Mathilda Tuuli, the assistant director of the DPO.
