Maximizing Engineering Potential

Engineering In Your Future

Incoming MEP students (both First-time Freshman and Community College Transfers) are supported during the summer before the Fall term through MEP’s “Learning Community & Pre-Orientation” event and “Engineering In Your Future” (EIYF) summer residential program.

Pre-Orientation is held at the beginning of summer to provide an overview of the MEP program, introduce the standards, policies, program requirements, and networking opportunities (“study buddy”) with other cohort members. Students familiarize themselves with the layout of campus, learn about the registration process, and build their tentative class schedules. Incoming cohort students return towards the end of summer for EIYF, a 3 day over-night stay program.

Students engage with other members of the MEP cohort, are introduced to their peer mentors, and engage in a series of workshops by both professional staff and engineering industry representatives. These activities are designed to introduce students to various engineering fields, team-building, and community-engagement opportunities. MEP is designed to guide students’ expectations as they complete their transition from high school or community college and embark on their college experience.
