Conduct an independent projectIt should involve the full engineering process - starting from a problem or an idea, to developing concepts and process which lead to either a prototype of even a final product. This product can be a software, hardware, or any innovative idea. All should be supported with quantitative work which underscores:

- your are a risk taker.
- maturity and resilience to bounce back from challenges and failure.
Start your own portfolio.Engineering portfolio is a journey, NOT just a fancy well-written document. Do start writing your portfolio early - as it reflects who you are and your passion. The portfolio can substantiate the technical depth, and longevity of your engineering interests, leadership, activities that make an impact. This will be a great addition to your internship applications. Thus, do not wait until 12th grade to jam information onto your own web portfolio at once.
