Abstract

The recruitment of minority students in Arizona state university (ASU) for engineering and applied science programs is discussed. The office of minority engineering programs (OMEP) has developed a program with the industry to expose the high school students to the exciting and diverse disciplines of engineering. Local industries have joined together with the education, government and labor to increase the transition of students from middle to high school to college to employment. The engineering summer institute (ESI) was organized to expose the students to skills which would assist them in persuing engineering and technology as career option.
