Course Offerings


The educational plan for R2DEEP is based on the offering of college-level courses to high school students in the areas of: Mathematics, Engineering, and Language. These areas offer a high potential of positively impacting the student’s preparation for entering an engineering program.

Courses are offered via synchronized distance education. In this modality, each course is lectured by a College professor in the university and transmitted “in-vivo” to participating schools and independent students. All courses are also attended by regular UPRM students, making remote students part of our virtual classroom.

Students can take up to 18 credits, enrolling in up to two courses per semester. The current course offering includes:

  • Summer Period (Jun-Jul)

    • DECEP Math Remedial Workshop
    • Summer Camp Participation
  • Fall Term (Aug-Dec)
    • INGE-3011-  Engineering Graphics (2cr)
    • MATE-3171- Pre-Calculus I (3cr)
    • MATE -3031-Calculus I (4cr)
    • ESPA-3101-  Spanish I (3cr)
  • Spring Term (Jan-May)
    • INGE-3016-  Algorithms and Computer Programming (3cr)
    • MATE-3171-  Pre-Calculus I (3cr)
    • MATE-3172-  Pre-Calculus II (3cr)
    • ESPA-3101 – Spanish I (3cr)

Benefits:

  • Students develop a well solid base to be admitted to the UPRM in Engineering or other programs, and be successful in college.
  • Students take college courses taught by the UPRM professors and earn college credits.
  • Students can accumulate up to 19 college credits usable when entering to the UPRM. These, when added to the up to 9 additional credits that could be earned by advanced placement, could account up 27 earned college credits, saving almost two full semesters (one year) in any engineering study program.
