Multicultural Engineering Program

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 under-represented students, and continue to build a community of support through our many partnerships and advocacies.

MEP offers the following opportunities and programs:

  • Academic Support – MEP/ CASA Tutors
  • Undergraduate Research Opportunities (CO-WY AMP Grant)
  • Challenge – Summer Bridge program for incoming freshmen
  • Leadership Opportunities within Professional Societies
  • Professional Development events
  • Scholarship search assistance
  • Support for First Generation students
  • Networking with industry and community representatives for internship and employment opportunities
  • K-12 Outreach in conjunction with Undergraduate Admissions
  • Graduate School pathway partnerships
  • Annual MEP Banquet honoring graduating undergraduate and graduate students
