Minority Engineering Program


Founded in 1977 by retired Assistant Dean Minnie M. McGee, MEP was created to ensure that the talents of historically underrepresented students (Black/African American, Hispanic/Latinx and Indigenous) are included in the engineering profession so that an adequate supply of engineers is available to meet the increasing demands of our community, state and Nation; and to assure that all engineering students understand and appreciate diversity as prerequisites for optimum achievement in an increasingly diverse and global society. The program works to expand the participation of underrepresented ethnic minorities in the College of Engineering and in the engineering profession.

While MEP events are designed to encourage and support underrepresented minority students they are open to all students regardless of racial or ethnic identity.
