Abstract

The increasing number of qualified minority students in the college of engineering and applied science (CEAS) of Arizona state university (ASU) is discussed. The high school students interested in engineering have been exposed by the office of minority engineering program (OMEP) in collaboration with the industry. The mathematics engineering science achievement (MESA) program was hosted by ASU to assist the students to persue engineering and technology as their career option. The ASU MESA program helped in recruiting secondary students and to explore the option of computer science as an academic and professional career.
