My introduction to Engineering Enrichment Program

EOE MITE group

Session I: June 4 - 9, 2017
Session II: June 18 - 23, 2017

The Equal Opportunity in Engineering Program, along with student members of the Pi Sigma Pi Academic Engineering Society, National Society of Black Engineers, and Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers, offers My Introduction to Engineering (MITE) Enrichment Program.  MITE is a free, six-day residential program 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, Native American and Native Hawaiian 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.

Benefits of MITE

Attending the MITE enrichment program is one of the best ways to learn more about engineering at The University of Texas at Austin.

Youth Protection Program

The purpose of the Youth Protection Program (YPP) is to protect all minors in their university-sponsored activities and interactions involving members of The University of Texas at Austin community. Read more about the YPP and the restriction of carrying a concealed handgun by any person involved in a University of Texas at Austin camp/program for minors.
