Multicultural Engineering Program

The Multicultural Engineering Program (MEP) is focused on increasing the pool of interested and qualified students from historically under-represented groups pursuing engineering degrees, while also providing a foundational support system. Programs providing support and engagement for multicultural students include the following:

  • MEP Kompass summer bridge program, a free three-day intensive bridge program designed to accelerate academic success for incoming freshmen
  • Multicultural Academic Program Success (MAPS), a six-week summer bridge program providing opportunities to network with peers and faculty while also acclimating to the K-State campus
  • Student organizations, including American Indian Science and Engineering Society, National Society of Black Engineers, and Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers
