Abstract

Maricopa Engineering Transition Scholars (METS), funded by NSF, is a collaborative project between Arizona State University and five Maricopa Community Colleges. The project aims to increase the recruitment and retention from untapped labor pools in community colleges into university engineering programs. This paper describes the formation and early work of a two-year pilot collaboration between Arizona State University and Maricopa Community Colleges to build a seamless system that interests, enrolls, retains, and graduates women and underrepresented minorities in engineering degree programs.
