Multicultural engineering program

Established in 1994, the Multicultural Engineering Program (MEP) offers a variety of programs designed to increase and enhance the academic performance of all of our declared engineering majors.

The MEP is one means of addressing the critical issue of support, retention, and graduation of students in undergraduate engineering programs and helping them make connections to the industry workforce.

MEP currently serves as a resource center for all engineering, computer science, and construction management students. Utilizing a number of collaborative strategies that involve program faculty and staff, student organizations, the university community and industry, we make every effort to assist students in reaching their potential.

Membership

Students pursuing Engineering majors and Professional Programs (Construction Management and Computer Science) through CEFNS are eligible for MEP membership.

Perks of being an MEP Member

Learn about free tutoring, the MEP Lounge, your monthly newsletter, and more

Tutoring

The MEP employs qualified student tutors for regularly scheduled Drop-in Tutoring, One-on-one Tutoring, or Group Tutoring in the Engineering Building. The MEP is also one of six programs on campus that partners with the Student Learning Centers (SLC) to provide access to one-on-one tutoring via the Master Schedule, at no cost to MEP members. View the courses supported by the MEP this semester!

The MEP Lounge is closed and tutoring is not offered during spring break, winter closure, or on University Holidays. 

MEP Lounge

Room 107 in the Engineering Building
Space to study, hang out in between classes, find a stapler for your assignment, have a cup of free coffee or tea, get help on math or physics, or meet students just like you. Students who enroll in the MEP have access to the computers in the MEP Lounge, including free printing. The MEP Lounge hours mirror the Engineering Building hours: Monday - Thursday 7:00 AM - 9:00 PM,  Friday 7:00 AM - 5:00 PM.  The MEP Lounge is closed and tutoring is not offered during spring break, winter closure, or on University Holidays. 

Newsletter

In the first week of every month MEP members receive an email containing the MEP Voices newsletter full of important dates, study tips, scholarships, internship info, pertinent news or events, and maybe a surprise or two. The newsletter is the voice of the program! If you'd like to contribute to the newsletter (whether a personal story, exciting research, a group accomplishment, or even an engineering-related comic) contact the MEP Coordinator. 

Calculator Loan Program

Need a graphing calculator? The MEP has 10 graphing calculators (mostly TI-84s) to loan out each semester to MEP members. 


Workshops

Experts across campus share tips and tidbits to make you successful. Test Anxiety?  There's a workshop for that.  Want to know how to create a stellar resume?  There's a workshop for that.  Need some help figuring out how to manage your time?  There's a workshop for that... and many more. Keep an eye on the Newsletter for highlighted workshops or contact the MEP Coordinator to request one!


Academic Success Meetings

A great opportunity to ‘check in’ and have a safe space for listening, MEP members can schedule a weekly or monthly academic success meeting with the MEP Coordinator to talk about how the semester is going, share challenges, and identify productive study habits.
