MESA Engineering Program (MEP) Centers

The MEP supports educationally disadvantaged students to attain four-year degrees in engineering or computer science. The MEP’s rigorous academics, leadership preparation, and collaborative problem-solving training produce highly skilled graduates who meet industry’s workforce needs. The MEP establishes a peer community for its students, most of whom are first in their family to go to college, based on mutual academic support and high standards, encouragement and motivation. Establishment of this strong academic peer community sets MEP apart from most other programs. 

MESA programs operate from centers at Colleges, Universities, and Community sites throughout the State. For more information please select the centers below.
