The College of Engineering (COE) initiated the first Middle School Introduction to Engineering Systems (MITES) program in 1997. The program selects rising 7th grade students who demonstrate interests within math and science. MITES7 is a non-residential program. The purpose of MITES7 is to help rising 7th grade school students understand the definition of engineering. The MITES7 session will be hosted on July 26-29, 2015.
Thirty-two students will be selected to participate in the program. Hands-on activities will spark an interest in the world of engineering and allow students to explore career opportunities. Throughout the program, participants will be challenged to apply what they have learned in engineering competitions. Counselors will assist with program activities and supervision of participants.
