Abstract

The recruitment of minority students in the college of engineering and applied sciences (CEAS) of Arizona state university (ASU) is discussed. The office of minority engineering programs (OMEP) has also developed a collaborative effort with industry to expose high school students to the disciplines of engineering. Local industries have joined together with education, government and labor to increase the transition of students from high school to employment. The GTE engineering summer institute exposed the students to persue engineering and technology as career option.
