     All Engineering Minds workshops, like no other offered, are designed for super curious students of science and technology. We inspire, enlighten, and empower students through the teaching of engineering theory, application, and career skills. Students are engaged through discussion, student presentations, projects, and engineering videos. They are encouraged to engage with mentors and each other, and to think creatively at all levels, on all topics, and in all activities. We cover a broad range of scientific and technical topics and keep students engaged and challenged through lectures, discussions, science videos, projects, experiments, and Skype sessions with professionals in industry and academia.
     The primary project technology is the Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA). Engineering Minds is the only program to successfully offer FPGA technology, a course offered to undergraduate engineering students, to middle and high school students. Why wait until college? Dr. Athan's unique curriculum allows middle and high school students to get the Altera FPGA tools up and running by the second day of the workshop! This technology and application is beyond the traditional use of general purpose robotics, microcontrollers, microprocessors, and programming platforms, such as Raspberry Pi, Arduino, and Python, offered at every other summer program. It sets our Engineering Minds students apart from those in ordinary programs that use beginner, non professional platforms as opposed to tools and techniques currently used in industry and academia.​​

     Mentoring is available for students to prepare them for college and careers. The focus is on theory, application, and career skills including leading edge technologies, multi-discipline engineering, entrepreneurship, leadership, self brand, resume and portfolio, intellectual property, ethics, and risk, to name a few. Electrical engineering is used as a vehicle from which students will learn valuable "tricks of the trade", insight, methods, and techniques that will set them apart for careers in industry, academia, federal, defense, and R&D. Mentoring is available for groups, individuals, in person, and over Skype.


     Engineering lectures are available to industry and academic groups of all ages including middle school, high school, college, government, public, and private. Topics are tailored to intended audiences and available to cover all aspects of science and engineering including education. Examples include analog, digital, chip level, system level, design, simulation, layout, fabrication, testing, patents and intellectual property, expert witness, R&D, and much more.
