SUMMET: Summer Multicultural Engineering Training
Summer Multicultural Engineering Training (SUMMET) is an engineering, science, and technology program for rising juniors and seniors from underrepresented populations, including ethnic/racial minorities, women, and prospective first generation college students. Students from Colorado and Oklahoma are eligible to apply to the program. SUMMET combines course work, hands-on projects, industry tours, team-building activities and social events. SUMMET provides exposure to the lifestyle, opportunities and challenges of college, and is designed to help build skills and experiences for a smooth transition from high school to college. SUMMET is a two-week residential program, allowing participants to live on campus for the duration of the program, experience life as a college student, and participate in STEM related curriculum instruction.
SUMMET is available at no cost to participants, with the exception of a $50 confirmation fee for students accepted into the program. Transportation to/from the program is not included in the cost, and is currently the responsibility of participants.
2019 SUMMET Dates:
June 2 – June 14, 2019
