SUMmer Minority Engineering Training Program
In 2016, Mines hosted high school juniors and seniors for an academically intensive three-week residential experience. Students were:
- introduced to a wide range of engineering and technical fields of study;
- made industry visits to IBM, the Edgar Mine and Edward Kramer & Sons;
- had presentations from Lockheed Martin and the NAVY; and
- attended a Colorado Rockies game.
SUMMET Application and Information
SUMMET was started in 1971 by faculty members who were committed to increasing enrollment of historically under-represented students in engineering. Initially, the program was designed for one week and served 6-10 students who performed small experiments and investigated education and careers in engineering. Between 1991-1995, SUMMET received a Program of Excellence grant from the Colorado Commission of Higher Education which allowed the program to increase enrollment and implemented a two-week long academic and group project curriculum.
