Summer Multicultural Engineering Training (SUMMET) Program

 The Summer Multicultural Engineering Training (SUMMET) program is an engineering, science and technology program designed for rising juniors and seniors who are from underrepresented populations, including ethnic/racial minorities, women and prospective first-generation college students. 

SUMMET combines coursework, hands-on projects, industry tours, team-building activities and social events. SUMMET provides exposure to the lifestyle, opportunities and challenges of college, and is designed to help build skills and experiences for a smooth transition from high school to college. SUMMET is a one-week residential program, allowing participants to live on campus for the duration of the program, experience life as a college student and participate in STEM-related curriculum instruction.

This program is available at no cost to participants, except for a $50 confirmation fee if you are accepted into the program. Transportation to and from the program is not included in the cost and is the responsibility of participants.

We have three opportunities for you to attend SUMMET this year:

  • June 4 – June 9, 2023
  • June 11 – June 16, 2023
  • June 25 – June 30, 2023

Stay tuned for more information on how to apply and further updates regarding the program!

We plan to hold SUMMET 2023 on campus, and will do our best to preserve the integrity and purpose of the program, but due to the continued uncertainty surrounding COVID-19 on-campus programming may be affected. We continue to closely monitor all local, state and national guidance, and will communicate any changes, if applicable, throughout the months leading up to the program.
