Multicultural engineering program

Established in 1994, the Multicultural Engineering Program (MEP) offers a variety of programs designed to increase and enhance the academic performance of all of our declared engineering majors.

The MEP is one means of addressing the critical issue of support, retention, and graduation of students in undergraduate engineering programs and helping them make connections to the industry workforce.

MEP currently serves as a resource center for all engineering and construction management students. Utilizing a number of collaborative strategies that involve engineering program faculty and staff, student organizations, the university community and industry, we make every effort to assist students in reaching their potential.

Our location:

Engineering building, 69

MEP study lounge: Room 107

MEP office: Room 122F
