Hear from an engineering recruitment staff member and a panel of current Buckeye engineers as they share their experiences at Ohio State.

Virtual Minority in Engineering Program Engagement Session for Admitted Students
The Minority in Engineering program (MEP) welcomes you! Founded in 1977, 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. 

Join the program's assistant director and current students to learn about MEP, Pre First-year Academic and Career Engagement (PREFACE), Engineering House Learning Community, and Diversity, Outreach, and Inclusion (DOI) programming. While MEP events are designed to encourage and support underrepresented minority students they are open to all students regardless of racial or ethnic identity.

Virtual Women in Engineering Program Engagement Session for Admitted Students 
Women in Engineering (WiE) welcomes you! Established in 1979, WiE’s mission is to work as a change agent to increase the number of women pursuing engineering degrees and entering the workforce as engineering professionals. The WiE network includes innovative and exciting programming to introduce girls to engineering opportunities and to support women in reaching their full potential. 

Join the program's assistant director and current students to learn about women-centered programs and initiatives, Engineering House Learning Community, and programming through our Office of Diversity, Outreach, and Inclusion (DOI)! While WiE events are designed to encourage and support women they are open to all students regardless of gender identity.
