CAMP is a competitive, co-curricular program that brings together students, faculty, and industry leaders to partner on challenging projects. The hands-on learning that takes place within a CAMP team, in addition to the understanding and responsibility gained when students work with their peers toward a common goal, is what makes CAMP such a life-changing experience for South Dakota Mines students. From improving interpersonal and communication skills, to practicing time and project management, to presenting proposals and professional presentations, the 500+ students in CAMP are more prepared for jobs outside of college.
