My Introduction to Engineering Summer Camp

Session I: June 8 - 13, 2014
Session II: June 15 - 20, 2014

The Equal Opportunity in Engineering Program, along with student members of the National Society of Black Engineers, Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers, and Pi Sigma Pi Academic Engineering Society, offers My Introduction to Engineering (MITE) Summer Camp.  MITE is a free, six-day residential camp that offers current high school juniors the opportunity to discover engineering through hands-on projects and interactions with engineering students, faculty, staff and alumni.

MITE is open to students with strong interests in engineering, science or math. Fifty students will be selected to attend each session. Outstanding African-American, Hispanic and Native American students, as well as those who have overcome any social or economic hardship, are strongly encouraged to apply. All students are welcome to apply. Students must reside in the United States.

Student participants are housed in a campus dorm.  All program expenses (including housing and food) are paid for, with the exception of travel to and from The University of Texas at Austin.
