My Introduction to Engineering (MITE)

Out of concern for the health and safety of all current and future members of our Texas Engineering community and based on direction from Cockrell School of Engineering leadership, EOE has canceled our MITE summer camp. We are in direct communication with all the camp applicants and their guardians.

The Equal Opportunity in Engineering Program, along with members of the student groups Pi Sigma Pi Academic Engineering Society, National Society of Black Engineers and Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers, hosts the MITE program every summer. MITE is a five-day camp for current high school juniors to discover engineering through participation in an engineering team project, hands-on activities 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. All students are welcome to apply, and outstanding African-American, Hispanic, Native American and Native Hawaiian students, as well as those who have overcome social or economic hardship, are strongly encouraged to apply. Students must reside in the United States.

Student participants are housed in a campus dorm.
