About

You’ve decided to take the path less taken, to engage in a challenging profession, but in doing so, to make significant contributions to the world. Welcome to Madison Engineering.  Your journey with us starts on August 18 at the third annual event for all Madison Engineering first-year students — Re:MADE Camp.  At Re:MADE Camp, you will:

  • Build your new peer community
  • Make professional connections to upper-level engineering students, faculty, staff, and administrators
  • Explore your personal and professional interests
  • Use critical engineering skills to begin creating value for JMU
  • Design and build a project in many of our engineering studios and shops
  • Get early access to your new workspaces

Your involvement in Re:MADE Camp will jump-start your success in the JMU Department of Engineering. You will meet other students, faculty, and staff and learn about resources, skills, and mindsets that will be critical to your success as a MADE student through 48 hours of interactive, often team-based, activities.

Frequently Asked Questions

What happens at Re:MADE Camp?
At Re:MADE Camp you will participate in activities like small and large group design challenges, team-building activities, and engineering projects.  There will also be personal time to explore. Activities are led by Madison Engineering faculty, staff, and upper-level students.  Transportation, all meals, lodging and a few surprises are included.

When can I register for Re:MADE Camp?
Registration will open May 15 but will close on July 3, 2019.  Use this registration link to officially register, so we can plan for your attendance, and get ordering the many materials needed. You will receive a confirmation email to your JMU account after you register.

How much does Re:MADE Camp cost?
Registration only costs you $30, but in case you think that sounds like a really cheap camp experience, know that the Department of Engineering will cover all the other costs for you.

What is the timing of Re:MADE Camp?

  • Sunday, August 18 — Move to Harrisonburg (this is two days earlier than non-engineering first-year students).  We’ve arranged with the JMU Office of Residence Life to allow you to move your things into your dorm room on Sunday, August 18.  Later that day, at 4 pm, we will convene for our opening session. 
  • Tuesday, August 20 — Conclude around 2 pm. JMU’s First-year Orientation (“1787”) begins later that day.

Where is Re:MADE Camp held?
Re:MADE is held mostly in the Engineering Studios and Shops.

What should I bring to Re:MADE Camp?
Please leave your tablets, laptops, etc. back in your dorm room. Students are asked to leave phones packed away, unless instructed for activities. Headphones will be needed at one point. 

Smoking is also prohibited at Re:MADE Camp (including e-cigarettes). Please leave these items elsewhere.

If I am not yet 18 on August 18 (the first day of camp), will I need to sign a release form?
No, since you are on campus, that’s already covered.

I am a person with a mobility or physical disability or I would like to discuss other concerns, what are my options?
Please call Engineering Academic Advisor, Jamie Claytor, at (540) 568-8988 and we will discuss possibilities with you.

Is Re:MADE Camp required?
None of the truly amazing things in life are required (including college), but we (your engineering peers, engineering faculty, engineering staff, and engineering peer leaders) expect you to attend. The Madison Engineering community is a supportive force critical to our students’ successes, and your involvement at camp is a great first step to you thriving as a Madison Engineering student. Re:MADE Camp will be better with you playing a part, and you will be better off having experienced it.
