Abstract

The Maricopa Engineering Transition Scholars (METS) is a collaborative project between the Ira A. Fulton School of Engineering and five community colleges in Maricopa County Community College District to improve the transition success of students from community college to the University. The project will increase the student's interest in engineering and computer science at the community colleges. The program will build a model collaboration between a University and a community college system for engineering student. Modules have been developed to encourage students to learn about engineering and increase interest in engineering as career.
