Minority Engineering Advancement Program (MEAP)
The Minority Engineering Advancement Program (MEAP) was established in 1974 to encourage minority students to pursue studies in engineering and engineering technology. Through the annual MEAP summer workshops, the school identifies and recruits talented secondary school students and provides them with information about engineering careers and college requirements. Since 1976, approximately 100 students participate each summer in the program.

MEAP also provides support services to minority undergraduates enrolled in the School of Engineering and Technology. In addition, some scholarships are available to American Indian, African American, and Hispanic students, people from groups that have been historically underrepresented in engineering and technology. For more information, students should contact the Office for Academic Programs, School of Engineering and Technology, 799 W.
