Multicultural Engineering Program

The Colorado School of Mines’ Multicultural Engineering Program (MEP) was established in 1989. Over the years, MEP has played a significant role in promoting the ongoing commitment Mines has to create a more diverse and inclusive learning community. We work to enroll, retain, and graduate underrepresented students, and continue to build a community of support through our many partnerships and advocacies.

MEP offers the following opportunities and programs:

  • Leadership opportunities within professional societies;
  • Academic support – MEP/CASA tutors;
  • Undergraduate Research Opportunities;
  • Professional development;
  • WIRED: Work/Interview, Resume/Experience Day – Career Fair Preparation;
  • Scholarship search assistance;
  • Networking with industry and community representatives for internship and employment opportunities;
  • Annual MEP Banquet honoring graduating students.
