Prospective Students

Thinking about attending Mines?

The Multicultural Engineering Program is here to support your exploration of Mines academics and student activities.

SUMMET: Summer Multicultural Engineering Training

The Summer Multicultural Engineering Training (SUMMET) program is an engineering, science, and technology program designed for rising juniors and seniors who are from underrepresented populations, including ethnic/racial minorities, women, and prospective first-generation college students. Only students from Colorado and Oklahoma are eligible to apply to the program.

SUMMET combines coursework, 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 one-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.

We will do our best to preserve the integrity and purpose of the SUMMET program, but due to the continued uncertainty surrounding COVID-19, on-campus programming and residential living may be affected. We appreciate your patience and we will be sure to communicate any changes to the program moving forward. For more information on what Mines is doing to protect campus during COVID please go to our COVID resources website.

This program is available at no cost to participants, with the exception of a $50 confirmation fee for students accepted into the program. Transportation to and from the program is not included in the cost and is currently the responsibility of participants.

We have 3 opportunities for you to attend SUMMET in 2022:

  • SUMMET 1 – June 4-9, 2023
