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. Only students from Colorado and Oklahoma are eligible to apply to the program.

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.

We plan to hold SUMMET on campus this summer, 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 will communicate any changes, if applicable, throughout the months leading up to the program. For more information on what Mines is doing to protect campus during COVID-19 please go to our COVID resources website.

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 5 – June 10, 2022
  • June 12 – June 17, 2022
  • June 26 – July 1, 2022

The deadline to apply for the 2022 SUMMET sessions has passed. Please watch your email for more information on your application status and further updates regarding the program. If you’re interested in the 2023 program, more information will be available later in the fall.
